Some App Store apps and iTunes services sometimes require a subscription to unlock more features. The iDB app for example, offers subscriptions to a monthly or annual plan via an in app-purchase. At about $10 per month, Apple Music is the perfect example of an iTunes subscription service that offers considerably more for a monthly fee.
With more and more apps and services offering a subscription, it sometimes becomes hard to keep track of all of them, and you might end up paying for things you don’t use or need anymore. That’s why it’s a good idea to keep tab on your active subscriptions and make sure you aren’t wasting money.
In this post, we will show you how to view the status of your App Store and iTunes subscriptions on either your iPhone or directly from iTunes on your computer.
