    New iOS feature prompts you to cancel subscriptions when uninstalling apps
    There are operating system updates that feel tacked on or otherwise not particularly useful. Then there are those that genuinely alter the way you interact with a device. This new addition by way of iOS 13’s second beta falls firmly into the latter, prompting users to cancel a subscription upon uninstalling from an app. Spotted […]

    This is a great idea if it works as advertised. I wonder how many people have deleted apps from their devices without cancelling the associated subscriptions?

    I personally have been "bitten" by one of those so-called free iOS apps that expired and automatically renewed and charged my credit card. The charge was a small one but it really ticked me off since the fact that it was a subscription type app was not clearly advertised.

    Also, it's not very easy to cancel a subscription to an app that you have subscribed to. Apple has made it easier but it's still difficult enough so that many folks will just overlook it and pay for another period of time to use the app.

    I notice that most popular magazine subscriptions operate the same way. Macworld and MacLife mags both are automatically renewed unless you go to their account web page and turn that option off.
