Looking to cancel Apple TV Plus? If you want to cut down on your monthly streaming bills, you're in luck — canceling Apple TV Plus is easy. No need to wrangle a customer service representative on the phone or via online chat. All it requires is a few simple clicks or taps on a range of devices.

In two years, Apple TV Plus has become one of the most prestigious and distinguished streaming services thanks to award-winning shows like Ted Lasso and The Morning Show. After a seven-day free trial, its monthly cost is relatively low at $4.99. 

However, you may only have signed up to watch a certain show and want to cancel Apple TV Plus now that it's over. Or you are disappointed in the streamer's library, which is almost entirely made up of originals. They are high-quality originals, for sure, but the vault is tiny compared to the likes of Netflix or Disney Plus.

Whatever your reason, we'll take through all the steps needed to cancel Apple TV Plus.
