PSA: Apple Music's trial period ends for lots of users soon, cancel the auto-renewal while you still can

Since June 30, Apple Music has been openly available for just anyone with a compatible iOS device to give it a spin thanks to the three-month trial for free. It was the perfect way for the average user to give the service a thorough try and see if it suits their need better than the numerous other music-streaming solutions.

In case you've jumped on the Apple Music free trial train immediately or shortly after it became available, be warned that said free trial will expire soon. The earliest adopters will have their trial period ended on October 1. Of course, if you don't update your subscription details, you will get charged. As a refresher, using Apple Music will cost you $9.99 a month for an individual user and $15.99 for a family plan. 

That won't be a problem if you are actually digging Apple Music and intend to stay on board for the time being, but if you have forgotten that you have actually used it, then you might be for a bad time when you find out that it has automatically charged you after the expiration of your three-month free trial.

If you are of the second type, fret not! You can update your subscription details as fast and easy as 1-2-3! Follow the steps below in order to do so.

True. I predict that only 10 % (maybe less) of people will keep using this non innovative streamin service.

For an apple fan, I actually agree with you two... I havent even started my 3 months trial - I stream music and other media from my harddrive at home - I like to own all my tracks outright.. Apple Music is not for me.

Compared to Spotify its a mess. I get it, its a new service etc etc. But why would I waste money and time rebuilding my huge spotify library over apple music which doesn't offer anything more or better besides the family plan and even that is not worth it of how big mess apple music is.

Love apple music, got plenty of songs that other apps be missing. It's easy to use, and I can make the Playlist that I want which I prefer, the family plan is great too
