What happens once you Cancel Apple Music Membership

Onc you’ve finally pushed the Apple Music Cancel button, you might have some questions.

Firstly, even if you have canceled the subscription to Apple Music the application of the same doesn’t get removed from your device whatever it maybe. You have to intentionally remove the application.

So unless and until the application is not uninstalled you still have a chance to renew the membership anytime you want to do that.

Below are some of the other queries that you may have in mind,

Will your Apple music disappear? 

Yes, sadly this will happen.

Apple preserves all the music tracks in the application to ensure that the terms of subscription are not violated. Once you cancel the subscription you cannot play your tracks, the song will start to play on you click on it and then after a few seconds a message appears saying that your subscription has expired.

Even if you have downloaded the tracks, Apple still won’t give you access to them.

If you’re using a Family Plan, will other members lose access if you cancel? 

Yes, this will also happen.

So if you have an intention of cancelling your subscription, make sure you tell your partners in Apple Music before pushing the Cancel button.

They will have the time to add someone else to the account or even change the plan if they wish.

How to cancel Apple Music auto-renewal? 

Yes, this can actually be done.

If you’re not sure you would be willing to use Apple Music once the billing period ends, it’s better to make sure that your subscription to the same won’t be renewed automatically by the team.

To do so open the app on your Apple device and then go to your profile icon in the top right corner.

From there click on View Apple ID then, Subscriptions and go to Manage. You will find the Turn off the auto-renewal option, click on that and confirm.

How do I switch to a different plan? 

You can change the Apple Music plan if you want — for instance, you’ve been using Individual plan uptil now then you can decide to switch to Family — and for this you don’t have to wait until the next billing period.

Simply go and create a new plan and Apple will cancel the auto renewal of your current subscription automatically.
