If you see apple.com/bill, itunes.com/bill, or an unfamiliar charge on your statement

Investigate charges that you see on your bank, credit card, debit card, or mobile billing statement.

Find out if the charge was for a recent purchase or group of purchases

Click here to see a list of all your purchases. You might be asked to sign in. If you don't see a list of purchases after you sign in, follow these steps to see all your purchases.

Don’t recognize the amount? Sometimes multiple items, including subscriptions, in-app purchases, or items that you pre-ordered, are grouped together on one bill. Learn how purchases are grouped.

 

Find out if the charge was for a subscription that renewed

When you look at the list of all your purchases, look for subscriptions that automatically renewed.

If you no longer want the subscription, you can cancel it.

 

Check if a family member made a purchase

Do you share your device or share a payment method with your family? Ask family members if they signed up for a subscription or bought something from the App Store or iTunes Store. Or check the purchase history of each Apple ID that uses your payment method. 

If young children have access to your device, you might want to set up your password preferences so that a password is required for every purchase. You can also use Screen Time to prevent purchases. Or to manage what kids buy on their own devices, set up Family Sharing

Anyone who has your Apple ID password can make charges to your account. If you have unauthorized charges, change your Apple ID password.

 

Check if you bought something using another Apple ID

Go to reportaproblem.apple.com and sign in with your other Apple ID. You'll see a list of recent purchases that you made with that Apple ID.

Or if you use another Apple ID on a different device, use that device to see a list of purchases that you made with that Apple ID.

If you followed the steps above and you didn't find out why you were charged, contact Apple Support.
