How to Change or Cancel Recurring Charge Automatic Payment Subscriptions with Apple Such as for Tinder or Bumble

If you are like so many other people, you may have agreed to a recurring charge (‘subscription’) from within an app such as Bumble, Tinder, Nomorobo, or other app, and then completely forgot about it (that would be the ‘set it and forget it’ that these apps count on), only to be reminded of it when you get an email reminder like the below. And now you want to know how to change or cancel that subscription, but the ‘helpful’ reminder is silent on that point.

How to Change or Cancel Recurring Charge Automatic Payment Subscriptions through Apple

What you need to do is go here:

Choose the option to open the link in iTunes, and iTunes should open directly on the Subscriptions page within your account in the iTunes store. (If it doesn’t, read below for how to get there.)

If iTunes Doesn’t Open to the Subscription Page

If iTunes doesn’t open already displaying your account’s subscription page, go to the top menu in iTunes and click on ‘Store’.

Then, on the right-hand side, click ‘Account’.

Changing or Cancelling Those Subscriptions

Now that we are all on the same page, here is how to cancel those pesky subscriptions.

Let’s say you want to cancel your Bumble subscription. Note that right now it says that it will renew on March 21st.

Click ‘Edit’ next to the subscription.

This will bring you to this screen:

Click on ‘Cancel Subscription’ (if you just want to change your subscription you can do that here by selecting whatever it is to which you want to change it).

Assuming you are cancelling your subscription, confirm the cancellation.

You will know that it ‘took’ because now in the listing for that subscription, instead of saying it renews on such and such date, it says that it will expire on that date.

And that’s how you cancel (or change) an Apple subscription!
