How to Turn Off Automatic Renewal for Apple Music

Apple Music was made available to the general public near the end of June 2015, and is accessible from your iPhone after you have upgraded to iOS 8.4. Once you can access Apple Music, you will be able to sign up for a free trial where you test out the service.

But signing up for the free trial will activate the automatic renewal feature in Apple Music, and oyu will be charged the monthly subscription rate once the free trial has ended. Fortunately, however, this is something that you can turn off directly through your device by following our tutorial below.
