How to unsubscribe from a paid application on iPhone?

Économies et argent

The subscription-based app monetization model is proving increasingly popular with developers. In addition, the subscription process is made very simple for the user! On the downside, you can sometimes find yourself subscribed to a lot of apps, some more really useful, or others whose existence you would have even forgotten on your iPhone or iPad. This can be all the more the case if you do not regularly check which subscriptions are in progress.

It is therefore necessary to remember from time to time to check your account and your subscriptions, to take the necessary measures and stop one of them which would no longer be useful to us, or reactivate another if necessary.

So in our series of practical files, we will see how to consult the list of current subscriptions, to stop them, but also to reactivate themwhether on iPhone or iPad, and that’s not all:

It can be interesting to remember each month to consult the subscriptions in progress and linked to your iTunes account. For this, nothing could be simpler, we recommend the most direct technique, the Siri request :

  • “Hey Siri, create a monthly reminder for my iTunes subscriptions”

This can be a good help to not miss the boat and avoid being charged for an extra month of a subscription to an app that is gathering dust.

How to check when an app was last used

Before you want to deactivate a subscription for an app or service installed on the iPhone, it can be interesting to see if it is really worth it. iOS can then help in this direction, thanks to its system function which shows the last dates of use of the apps. Thus, if, for example, you have not opened the Bear app (available here on the App Store), for 3 months, and for which we pay a subscription each month, unsubscribing can be calmly considered.

To see the last dates of use of his apps:

  • Go to Settings > General > iPhone Storage
  • Wait for iOS to show the data and scroll down to see the list of apps sorted by amount of space used
  • Under the name of each app is displayed the last date of use
