Here's how to prevent Apple Music from charging you after its three-month free trial ends

Here's how to prevent Apple Music from charging you after its three-month free trial ends
Yesterday, Apple Music arrived guns blazing alongside iOS 8.4, allowing iOS users to make full use of Apple's brand-new streaming service that aims to clash and, ultimately, surpass Spotify, Deezer, Pandora, Google Play Music, and a lot many other music streaming services.

Using Apple Music will cost you $9.99 a month for an individual user and $15.99 for a family plan, yet the first three months of usage will cost you nothing - only after the free trial ends, Apple will charge you accordingly to the subscription plan you've chosen.

This means that just anyone with an iOS 8.4 and a valid billing information can stream their favorite tracks with Apple Music. The best part is that you can prevent Apple Music from renewing your subscription after the trial ends. Simply put, this means that Apple Music will be free for three months.

Here's how to disable the automatic subscription renewal and stream rad songs without worrying that you'll get charged at the end of the trial.

I definitely love Apple music its brilliant has all the songs i love and ones you would never hear anywhere else. I do prefer spotify for music caching.

I tried 8.4 and IMO new music player is terrible. Much too cluttered, it's nice that they FINALLY added queueing, but overall it's very slow compared to previous app. Glad I tried it now and could still revert to 8.3 which overall seems much faster than 8.4 to me. Maybe when Aria for 8.4 comes to Cydia it will get rid of Apple Music for good from stock player because it's pretty annoying that on every step I am being reminded "Oh look, we've launched new streaming service!" great, but I completely don't give a damn

I have to agree iOS6 player was ideal. iOS7&8 are almost as good but 8.4 is disappointment to me. As I said I appreciate new features, but it's to cluttered. I'm sure though that some jailbreak tweaks will solve this but now I will stay on 8.3

This is why iOS is still my way to go for consuming media. Google play music is not available in Indonesia, spotify is spotty at best also (meaning not available), while iTunes Store has been here for the last couple of years, and now with apple music I don't even have to buy the albums that I want! Simply subscribe for equivalent of $5 a month and voila! I can have all the music that I ever want so long as they are in iTunes Store library.
