  • This will take you to the list of Subscriptions you have. Now follow the steps mentioned above to get rid of the subscriptions you don’t need. 

Note: If you are not able to delete subscriptions on your iPhone through any of the steps mentioned, then the only way to do it is through the company’s official website or application. In this scenario, go to the My Account option of the official app and login to your account. There you will most definitely find an option to delete the subscription. 

Wrapping Up!

Those people who have many digital subscriptions will probably find that they have some services that are accessible through their Apple ID, and some that are accessible through the company’s website or some other way. Although, if you subscribe with a promo code that offers free access for a couple of months, it’s more probable that it directly happened with the company. 

There are other reasons why shopping directly with the company is more feasible. If you make a payment through Apple Pay, it will take a cut from the amount you pay to the provider. So, the service provider will get a greater cut of the money if you pay it directly.
