How to get a refund for a subscription on an iPhone?

Making purchases in the digital App Store is very easy and convenient. So much so that sometimes the process goes unnoticed. Money is deducted from your card instantly, but the realization that you rushed into the purchase comes later.

However, Apple is willing to refund your money for a subscription in the App Store if you subscribed by mistake or if you’re disappointed with the paid content. To do this, you need to go through the official procedure.

  1. Go to the website through your device’s browser.
  2. Log in with your Apple ID and password.
  3. In the “How can we help you?” section, choose the option “Request a refund.”
  4. In the “Tell us more” section, specify the reason for wanting a refund.
  5. Select the service for which you want to cancel the paid subscription and click “Submit for review.”


When submitting a refund request, make sure that the payment has already been processed. If the payment is still pending, the refund request won’t be accessible. You can submit it again once the payment has gone through.

One final piece of advice: be honest and don’t make up implausible stories. If you rarely request refunds from Apple, your chances are very high. However, if your deception is discovered, don’t expect their assistance in the future.
