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

Change or remove your payment information

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 in the iTunes Store, you also update your information for other services that use your Apple ID, such as the App Store and iCloud.

  2. Tap iTunes & App Store.
  3. Tap your Apple ID
  4. Tap View Apple ID. You might need to sign in.
