How to Cancel AppleCare for iPhone (2022)

Need to know how to grid rid of AppleCare? We'll show you.

The AppleCare+ service can provide additional coverage for your device in case you're worried about breakage, loss, or theft. If you need to cut back on your monthly expenses, however, or have decided you're not concerned about these possible issues, you might want to stop AppleCare coverage. We'll walk you through how to do so.

Canceling your monthly AppleCare subscription is pretty simple to do on your iPhone, but it may not be obvious where to find the menus to do so. There are two ways to access these options, and we'll walk you through one of them.
