How to Change Your Apple Music Subscription in iOS 9

Apple Music offers a free trial where you can familiarize yourself with the service. Once the trial is over, however, then you will need to pay for a subscription to continue using it. There are individual and family membership plans from which you can choose.

If you are unsure about which subscription option you are currently using, or if you wish to switch between the plan options, then our guide below will show you where to go on your iPhone to do so. You can even turn the automatic renewal option on or off from this same menu, which could help prevent you from being charged if you do not wish to renew your subscription.

Changing Apple Music Subscription Settings

The steps in this guide were performed on an iPhone 6 Plus, in iOS 9.

Note that if you signed up for Apple Music and got a free trial, then it is very likely that automatic renewal is turned on. So even if you are not intending to switch to an individual or family subscription from your current free trial, it is probably a good idea to visit this menu and confirm that the automatic renewal setting is correct.
