Apple Music Subscription: How to Disable Auto Renewal to Save Money

Apple Music is one of the best music streaming services online. It allows users to stream any songs on-demand, pick up the curated playlists for playback or watch music videos, concert footage, etc. However, unlike some of the other streaming apps such as Spotify which offers you a totally free plan, Apple Music doesn't have such an offer except the 3 months free trial. You are required to input your debit or credit card info to sign up the subscription and will be charged automatically $9.99 or $14.99 for individual and family after 3 months without further action needed.

It is OK to pay the subscription if you are satisfied and want to continue to service. But what if it doesn't meet your expectations? You are surely reluctant to pay for it, right? Here I will show you the top two ways to stop the automatic renewal charge of Apple Music subscription as well as how to backup the songs forever.
