app store Tutorial: how to change or cancel the app store subscriptions

There are many applications that offer to enjoy all their functionality through a subscription. Spotify, Deezer, Netflix and even Apple Music. These subscriptions are automatically renewed monthly until you decide to cancel them. In this article, we’ll show you how to change or cancel subscriptions from the App Store.

Little explanation : Be aware that a subscription is different from a single purchase or even from most in-app purchases. A single purchase is when you pay only once to unlock one or more features of an application; and you can then fully enjoy the application and all of its functionality without having to pay again. By cons, a subscription is like a contrat by which a developer delivers you all the benefits of its application periodically. Either over a period of one month, six months or a year. It depends on your choice of subscription.
