What if you can’t cancel App Store subscription?

Sometimes you don’t find the cancel button for a subscription on the Active subscriptions list when you tap on it. This simply means the cancellation has already been started but the subscription period hasn’t expired yet. This can be confirmed by checking the date below the subscription. It will read, Expires [date]. Whereas if you were still paying for the subscription, it would read Renews [date] instead. But when you don’t find the subscription in the list at all, then you have to cancel it directly from the source.

For instance, Netflix will not be in this list although it is a monthly subscription service. Thus, if you want to cancel your Netflix account, you have to do this directly from the website. Go to Netflix’s website, log in to your account, and cancel your subscription from there only.
