You’ll see a few options. You can either upgrade or downgrade the subscription, or you can cancel it outright. If you want to change the plan, tap the one you want until the tick appears next to it. If you want to cancel outright, tap the red Cancel link at the bottom of the screen.

You will be asked to confirm your changes. Once you do, the changes will be applied. However, most (if not all) subscriptions will run as usual until the end of the current billing period. The only exceptions will likely be free trials, which will end immediately if you cancel them.

FAQs

If the subscription is not on the subscriptions page, then you didn’t subscribe through Apple. In that case, go to the app’s website and log in there to find your subscription and billing details.

Currently, you cannot delete expired subscriptions from the page. They will remain there and eventually Apple’s servers will remove them from sight. But a record of the subscription will still be on file at Apple and on your account.
