Keep in mind that canceling one of the bundled subscriptions will cancel Apple One, and you may pay more. You can experiment by selecting which services you want to keep to see how much you would pay for them per month without Apple One.

Don’t forget that if you have the Family or Premier plans, your family members who share the plan with you will also lose the services. To learn more about your iPhone, don't forget to sign up for our free Tip of the Day newsletter.

How to Cancel Apple TV Free Trial

The steps for canceling a free trial are the same as above. For most trials, you can cancel any time and still have access until the trial officially ends. Do pay attention to the terms and make sure Apple will let you keep using Apple TV after canceling it. When I tried to cancel a free Apple Fitness Plus trial early, I was told that I would lose access immediately.

Date of expiry

If this is the case and you want to keep enjoying the free trial, create an event in your Calendar app to remind you to cancel before it expires so you don't miss out on any free content. Even without Apple TV+ you can enjoy plenty of great content on your Apple TV by downloading your favorite streaming apps.

Now you know how to cancel Apple subscriptions, including Apple TV+. Many people wonder, "is Apple TV free?" If you have an Apple TV box, you can use it in several free ways without signing up for Apple TV+. However, you need a trial or paid Apple TV+ subscription to watch movies and shows. Having second thoughts? Discover new ways to enjoy Apple TV which includes watching on your computer or Mac!
