How to cancel a subscription on iOS

Signing up for a service through iOS kind of fun. A menu pops pop, you activate Face ID or Touch ID, and the world’s most satisfying ding lets you know your purchase was successful. It’s simplicity itself.

It’s funny, then, that Apple makes it such a Herculean ordeal to unsubscribe. Unsubscribing forces you to venture into depths of the Settings app that you probably never knew existed, and then through so many extra menus that you might start to worry you’re doing it wrong. Who knows? Maybe Apple wants to make it easy to hide your Tinder Gold subscription from prying eyes, but it’s a pain when you’re just trying to stop an app from sucking money from your wallet every month.

Regardless of whether you want out of HBO Now,, or even Apple Music, here’s what you need to do to cancel a subscription. (The following screenshots are in landscape mode on my iPhone running iOS 11.3.)
