If you signed up for your free three-month Apple Music trial around the time of launch, then your paid subscription is about to start...

If you've got an iPhone, there's a fair chance you'd have been tempted by the three-month Apple Music free trial. It was made available on 30th June, so if you signed up straight away the free trial will end on Wednesday 30th September.

If you don't want to pay for an Apple Music subscription, then you need to switch off the auto renewal feature before your free trial ends. And while it's not impossible to find where to do this, the option is a little bit tucked away.

Naturally you can turn off Apple Music auto renewal on your iPad, iPhone or iPod Touch, or on a desktop PC or Mac. Here's how...

Turn off auto renewal on iPhone, iPad, iPod Touch

Head to the Music app on your device and hit the profile icon in the top left corner.

Then select View Apple ID.

Scroll down to Subscriptions and tap Manage.

More after the break

Under Renewal Options you'll see Automatic Renewal. Toggle the button from On to Off. Confirm your selection on the pop-up menu, and you're done.

Want to keep Apple Music and start paying? A tick will indicate which subscription option you have selected.
