Apple Music has come under a great deal of criticism, most of which was even before the music streaming service went live. Now that it has been released opinions will change, which could be good or bad, but one thing we do know, a huge number of iOS and Mac users will be giving the service a go.
How to avoid Apple Music charges — Now that Apple Music is here people are taking advantage of the three-month trial, which means you will save yourself $30, or £30 in the UK seeing as though it cost $10 or £10 per month. However, you will then have to start paying for the subscription fee from September 30.
The thing is, at the end of this period you will then start to be charged, which is not an issue for those that want to keep the service, but for those that do not, you will want to disable the auto-renew feature.
Disabling Apple Music auto-renewal — If you want to avoid the charges just go to the top left of the Music app and press the Account icon, then view Apple ID. You then have to select Manage, and under subscriptions click on Your Membership and un-tick auto-renewal. It is much easier to do this while signing up, but it is easy to forget.
For Mac users this can be done in iTunes by selecting the Account icon, then go to Account Info, Settings, Subscriptions and Manage, then just click Edit next to the Apple Music subscription and select off.
