Apple Music offers a variety of plans to fit your lifestyle and budget. Options include an individual subscription for $9.99 per month or $99.99 per year. Students also have the option to receive monthly subscriptions for just $4.99.

Like other app subscriptions, you can cancel Apple Music from your phone, but you can also easily cancel or alter your subscription from your Mac computer.

After launching iTunes, you can access your account details and make any necessary changes. If you have a new Mac, you may need to sign into iTunes first before you can cancel your subscription.

After canceling, you will still have access to Apple Music features for the remainder of the current billing cycle.
