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.

Use your iPhone, iPad, or iPod touch

  1. Tap Settings > iTunes & App Store.
  2. Tap your Apple ID, then tap View Apple ID. You might need to sign in.
  3. Tap Payment Information. If you're using Family Sharing, only your family organizer can update the payment information.
  4. Change or remove your information. To remove your payment method, select None. Get help if you don't see None or can't select it.
  5. Tap Done. 

If you change your payment method to a credit card, the iTunes Store places a temporary authorization hold on your credit card to verify your updated account information.

  1. On your Mac or PC, go to iTunes >  Sign In. Enter your Apple ID and password.

  3. Enter your password again.

Then you can change your payment information on the Account Information screen:

  2. Change or remove your information. To remove the payment method, select None. Get help if you don't see None or can't select it.
  3. Click Done. 

If you change your payment method to a credit card, the iTunes Store places a temporary authorization hold on your credit card to verify your updated account information.

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.
