The fast and easy way to cancel Apple Subscriptions

Lately, Apple has been pushing Subscriptions on its customer base.

Lots of people hate this. They hate paying for software forever. And they really hate that Apple makes it hard to cancel a subscription. A lot of people can’t find their subscriptions on their iPhone.

This video reveals one way to cancel app subscriptions:

I discovered this faster and easier way to cancel app subscriptions on our mobile device:

Click on the [App Store] app.

Tap our profile pic (in the top-right-hand side of the screen).

Tap on the name with the right arrow icon (>). Confirm with either Touch ID or Face Id.

This takes us to the “Account Settings” page… which leads to the “Subscriptions” section. Click on it and wait a few seconds. A list of Active and Expired Subscriptions displays.

Clicking on a subscription instantly shows us all options. We can change between them and get a full prorated refund for time on the old plan. We can cancel with ONE tap and a confirmation. Cancelling does not interfere with what we have already paid for. And it tells us EXACTLY what date we have paid through.

By the way, subscriptions may not show up if we do not have any.

Best time to bring our Apple repairs to the Genius Bar

As much as I rail against Apple for creating products with planned obsolescence in mind…

I am impressed that Apple replaces their faulty devices via their Exchange and Repair Extension Programs.

Anyone with Apple products should scan this updated webpage of recalls.

I have had batteries swapped out, 4 logic boards repaired – and soon will have my laptop monitor replaced because of “Staingate”… all FREE of charge.

The downside is it can take Apple up to 10 days to fix our devices if they are part of the Exchange and Repair Extension Programs. (One of my Apple moles tells me holding off until January or February might be worth the wait. These two months are slower for Apple repairs… and wait times shrink almost in half during these two months.)

If we have AppleCare+, there might be a way to have our device fixed faster AND get a loaner unit.

Apple’s Express Replacement Service sends us a replacement device before we send our unit in for repair:

iPad
iPhone
Apple Watch

(Apple does not have an Express Replacement Service for laptops or desktop computers.)

If we spend a lot of money on Apple devices for small- to medium-sized businesses, joining Apple’s Joint Venture program might fit the bill. I was told they offer loaner devices when our units are in for repair.
