Do you often subscribe to some apps, stop using them, and forget about them? And they still charge you monthly or annually. If you'd like to check and declutter your subscriptions on your iPhone, go to the Settings app and tap on your Apple ID at the top of the page. Then, select Subscriptions and see which ones are active. You can easily unsubscribe by tapping on each one of them and selecting Cancel Subscription.
