How to Cancel Your Apple Arcade Subscription (iPhone/iPad)
January 18, 2024 - By Gavin Machetes

I recently decided to cancel my Apple Arcade subscription and found the process to be straightforward. Here's how I did it.

Step 1. Open Settings

Firstly, I tapped to launch the "Settings" app on my iPhone. Once opened, the Settings screen was displayed.

Step 2: Access Apple ID Profile

Next, I tapped my profile name, which was conveniently located at the top of the Settings screen. This action brought me to my Apple ID profile screen.

Step 3: Navigate to Subscriptions

On the profile screen, I found and tapped the "Subscriptions" option. This is typically located toward the top of the list of menu options. The Subscriptions screen then appeared, showing all my active and expired subscriptions for my iPhone or iPad.

Step 4: Select Apple Arcade Subscription

On the Subscriptions screen, I scrolled to find the "Apple Arcade" subscription listed under my active subscriptions. Tapping on it opened the Edit Subscription screen. This screen displayed details about my Apple Arcade subscription, including the expiration date and any available upgrade options.

Step 5: Cancellation

On the Edit Subscription screen for Apple Arcade, I scrolled down to find the "Cancel" option. This was displayed toward the bottom of the screen. After tapping "Cancel," a dialog box popped up, asking for confirmation of my decision to cancel the subscription.

Step 6: Confirm Cancellation

In the dialog box, I tapped to confirm that I wanted to cancel the Apple Arcade service. This took me back to the Edit Subscription screen. Here, I noticed that the information area now indicated that my Apple Arcade subscription had been cancelled. As a final step, when I navigated back to the main Subscriptions screen, I saw that my Apple Arcade subscription was now listed in the Expired section.

That's how I successfully cancelled my Apple Arcade subscription on my iPhone. The process is identical on an iPad!
