Automatically updated payment information

If you see Apple charges on a new credit or debit card, your financial institution might have automatically updated your information for you. Financial institutions occasionally update payment information to prevent services with recurring payments, like Apple Music subscriptions, from pausing when you get a new card. Sometimes, card issuers might also 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.


Find your CVV or security code

When you make purchases in the App Store, iTunes Store, or Apple Books, you might be asked for a security code or CVV to verify your payment information.

If your security code is missing or unreadable, contact your bank or credit card issuer for help.
