How to cancel Apple Arcade subscription on iPhone, Mac, and Apple TV

Apple Arcade, launched back in September 2019, is a subscription service that provides access to exclusive games on iPhone, iPad, Mac, and Apple TV. When it first launched, there weren’t a lot of titles available on the service. Fast forward to 2021, and we now have access to more than 180 amazing games. Apple charges a flat subscription fee every month, which gives you access to all the exclusive titles.

Users can also try out the service with a 1-month free trial. However, not everyone will want to continue to pay a monthly fee. In this post, we’re going to show you how to cancel an Apple Arcade subscription.
