How to cancel Apple Fitness+

Cancelling Apple Fitness+ is easy – when you know how

Whether you’re a lapsed user or were simply taking advantage of a free trial to see if you feel Apple Fitness+ is worth it, you’ve decided that now is the time to cancel Apple Fitness+. But how exactly do you do this? 

Apple Fitness+ is Apple’s home-workout service that’s designed to replicate the experience of being in a class at a gym or studio. It offers a wide range of classes and workouts, ranging from yoga, to dance, to high-intensity interval training, among others. And, at a cost of £9.99 a month, or £79.99 if you pay in full for 12 months, it is certainly more affordable than many gym memberships. 

Nevertheless, there are plenty of reasons why you may decide to cancel Apple Fitness+. Happily, Apple makes this process about as straightforward as possible, so you won’t find yourself paying for something you no longer want or need.

How to cancel Apple Fitness+

Depending on how you use Apple Fitness+, there are a few ways that you can cancel your subscription.

Cancel Apple Fitness+ on an iPhone or iPad:

  1. Tap on the Settings menu on your device
  2. At the top of the screen, tap on your name and Apple ID
  3. On the next screen, select “Subscriptions”
  4. Under “Active” select “Apple Fitness+”
  5. On the next screen you’ll see an option to cancel your subscription. If you’re enjoying a free trial, it will say “Cancel Free Trial” rather than “Cancel Subscription”

Cancel Apple Fitness+ on Apple TV:

  1. Open the Settings menu on Apple TV
  2. Select “Users and Accounts” and select your account name
  3. Go to “Subscriptions” and select Apple Fitness+
  4. Select “Cancel Subscription”

Cancel Apple Fitness+ on your Apple Watch:

Apple Fitness+ memberships

There are two types of Apple Fitness+ membership: monthly, at a cost of £9.99 per month, or an annual membership, which costs £79.99 per year. You can cancel your membership at any point before the next billing cycle starts and you will keep access to Apple Fitness+ until the end of the period you’ve already paid for. 

If you don’t cancel your subscription, you will be charged for the next billing period and there’s no guarantee that you’ll get a refund if you ask for one. So, if you’re sure you no longer want Apple Fitness+, remember to cancel it as soon as you can to avoid paying for another month or year of Apple Fitness+. 

Apple One subscriptions

There’s also the possibility that you’ve subscribed to Apple Fitness+ via the Apple One service (which bundles several different Apple subscriptions into a single monthly payment). If you’ve subscribed this way, you’ll be spending £32.95 a month and will enjoy access to Fitness+, as well as News+, Apple Arcade, Apple Music, tv+. You’ll also get a large 2TB of iCloud storage for your photos and videos. 

This may be good value if you use all (or most) of these services – but if not, it starts to look expensive. You’ll have to decide whether the other services justify the overall cost. If cancelling is the best option for you, then follow the same steps as we’ve listed above and select your Apple One subscription to cancel. As usual, you’ll have access to all the included services until the end of the month you’ve paid for. 

What next?

Once you’ve cancelled Apple Fitness+, there are lots of alternatives available. Whether you decide to try another at-home workout platform such as the Peloton app (which has a free membership tier so won’t cost you anything to use), make a return to a more traditional gym membership, or simply decide to get your shoes on and start walking more, the end of your Apple Fitness+ subscription doesn’t mean the end of your fitness journey.
