From iPhoneLoyals, we want to give you Information on How to View Active iPhone Subscriptions. To check if you have any Subscription right now with Apple related Services or simply external (from for example, some Apps like Netflix, Spotify, Disney +, ...) stay on this post and find out how you can cancel or modify them.
How to Cancel a Subscription
Before getting to the heart of the tutorial, we will explain what are the steps to follow to view active subscriptions on your iPhone, it seems wise to make some clarifications on the different types of subscriptions that can manage the Apple smartphone.
In most cases, the subscriptions referred to are those that have beenbilled directly by Apple throughin-app purchases, either downloading apps from the App Store or theservice offered by the "bitten apple" company itself, as in the case of Apple Music. These subscriptions can be managed from the iOS settings and the payment method used is the one associated with the Apple ID.
Regarding the possible subscription to iCloud payment plans, the billing also in this case is managed directly by Apple and it is possible to see everything in the iOS settings, but in a different section than that relating to in-app purchases (I'll talk about it in more detail shortly).
Other apps, propose the subscription without going through Apple. In this case, the chosen plan is enabled directly with the developer or whoever is the reference company and the management, as you guess, can not be done from the iOS settings but directly from the app in question or, alternatively, from its website.

Next, tap onView Apple ID and authenticate to your account using the FaceID, Touch ID or with theApple password, depending on the technology supported by your iPhone and what is defined in your device settings.
Then select theSubscriptions button that you find by scrolling through the screen displayed and finally, you will find yourself in front of the complete list of active subscriptions in your Apple ID, corresponding to the Active section.

Nothing could be simpler. First, take your Apple smartphone, unlock it, access the home screen and tap the settings icon (the one with thegear icon).

Alternatively, you can go to the website of the service of your interest, perform alogin to your account, access the section relating to your profile, select the item referring to thesubscription and then to display the plan.
Unfortunately, I can not be more precise about what to do, as I do not know the exact application to which you refer and the indications may differ according to these data. In any case, the steps to follow are, briefly, the ones I just told you.
