Guide to Unsubscribe Apple Music & Keep Its Songs Forever

Tell you how to unsubscribe from Apple Music & keep Apple Music tracks permanently.

Apple Music debuted in 2015. Last year, Apple introduced a library of high-quality music tracks, adding lossless songs that include Dolby Atmos. On October 3 of this year, Apple announced that the Apple Music library has surpassed 100 million. If you are curious about Apple Music with such a large library of high audio-quality tunes, you can directly renew your subscription ($10.99/month), or you can try the free trial version of Apple Music. At any time, you can unsubscribe from Apple Music when you don't want to use the service.

However, since Apple Music is a music streaming service, the songs in it will not be available for you after your subscription has expired. So this upcoming article not only describes the ways to cancel your Apple Music subscription on different devices but also guides you on how to save your Apple Music playlist and library permanently, which allows you to still enjoy Apple Music even if your renewal expires. Below we start reading the details!

Once you have activated Apple's related paid services (such as Apple Music), it will automatically renew after it expires, so how exactly do you turn off the automatic renewal? Here is a quick and easy step-by-step guide on how to unsubscribe from Apple Music on your iPhone/iPad/iPod touch, Mac/PC, and Android.

Tips: If you sign up for a free or discounted trial subscription and do not want to renew, please cancel your subscription at least 24 hours before the trial period ends.
