But will you remember three months from now to cancel Apple Music in time to avoid being billed? Probably not. Here's how to turn off Apple Music's auto-renewal setting right now just in case you decide you don't want to keep Apple's streaming music service.

First, open the Music app and go to your account by tapping on the head-shaped icon in the upper left corner of your screen.
