Change or remove your Apple ID payment information

On your iPhone, iPad, or iPod touch, you can change the payment information for your Apple ID in Settings. On your Mac or PC, go to iTunes.

Your Apple ID is the personal account that you use to access Apple services like the App Store, iTunes Store, iCloud, iMessage, the Apple Online Store, FaceTime, and more. When you change your payment method or billing address, your information also updates everywhere that you use your Apple ID.

If you change your payment method, make sure that your account information matches the credit card information on file with your financial institution.

If you're using Family Sharing, only your family organizer can update the payment information.

Store availability and features might vary by country or region.

Change your Family Sharing payment information

Only the family organizer can edit payment information for a family. If you're not the organizer, you'll see this message: "The payment method for your Family is managed by [Apple ID]."

If you're the organizer, you can use these payment methods. You can’t set your payment information to None.

Automatically updated payment information

If you see iTunes charges on a new credit card, your card issuer might have automatically updated your information for you. Card issuers update payment information to prevent services with recurring payments, like Apple Music subscriptions, from pausing when a new credit card is issued. Sometimes, card issuers might allow recurring charges to continue to go through on an expired credit card. 

If you have any concerns about this process, contact your card issuer or financial institution. 

Get help

If you want to update any other account information, sign in to your Apple ID account page.

If your previous payment wasn't accepted, you might need to change your payment information.

If you need help changing your payment information, credit card details, or billing information, contact iTunes Store support.
