Apple Music is one music platform of many, but it’s not for everyone. We show you how to cancel your Apple Music account when your free trial runs out, or if you’ve just had enough. 

Individual membership of Apple Music starts at £9.99 per month, which gives you access to the full Apple Music library, recommendations and radio stations. 

But if this is not for you, you need to make sure you’re not caught out after the three-month free trial is up, or if you want to switch platforms.
