Disable iTunes Match Auto Renewal

If you spent $25 last November when Apple launched iTunes Match, you may not know that it’s set to auto renew every year. If you don’t use the feature, there’s no reason to pay the $25 again. Here’s how to turn it off.

Launch iTunes on Mac or PC and go to Store >> View My Account.

View My Account

You’ll be prompted to log into your iTunes account if you’re not already. Then scroll down to the iTunes in the Cloud section. Click the Turn Off Auto Renew button

I have plenty of space on Amazon Cloud Player and Google Music to access my music for free. Also with so many streaming music services out there like Pandora, Spotify and MOG I have no reason to use iTunes Match anymore. If you’re in the same boat, saving yourself $25 a year is easy.

    … and if you run out of space in the case you’re a music power users – you should give TappIn a try. It’s a web and mobile application that give you instant access to stream your music directly from your computer from another device. You don’t need to upload or sync with the cloud.

    TappIn is a client of mine, and you can learn more about their music streaming capabilities at Brian, hope you don’t mind me expanding on your article 🙂
