You may find that you can save some money right away.

How to Check iPhone Subscriptions

To find your subscriptions, download the Apple App Store.

Now tap on your profile picture in the top right corner.

Look for the word “Subscriptions” and tap on it.

You will then be presented with a list of your active subscriptions and inactive subscriptions below.

If you tap on an active subscription, you will see the fee you will be charged for it.

Also, you can see the date to renew the subscription.

There may be a “View All Plans” button that allows you to change the type of subscription you have for this app.

And there should be a big red “Unsubscribe” button.

This usually prevents the subscription from renewing, but you can still access the benefits of the plan up to the last day before renewal.

If you have a lot of subscriptions, it’s a good idea to use the sort function at the top right.

This allows you to rank the apps by their price or even by their renewal date.

This should make it easier to quickly go through your subscriptions and weed out the ones you no longer need.

Also, make sure the Renewal Receipts option is checked at the bottom of this page.

“Every time one of your subscriptions is renewed, you will receive a receipt,” Apple explained.
