How to turn off Auto Renew for Apple Music trial period

Turn off auto-renew

To sign up for the free three-month trial of Apple Music, you need to use your Apple ID account with a valid credit card. That means that when those three months are over, Apple will start automatically charging $9.99 a month to your card for the service ($15 if you went with the family option). 

To avoid surprise charges, you can disable auto-pay now. To do that, open the Apple Music app on your iPhone, click the profile icon in the top left corner, and tap on “View Apple ID.” (You can also get here through the iOS Settings app: Go to Settings, iTunes & App Store, and click on your Apple ID). 

Enter your password, click on Payment Information, scroll down and click on “Manage” under Subscriptions. If you have multiple subscriptions, select the one for Apple Music and toggle the Automatic Renewal option to “off.”

Deleting and Merging the recovery partition in OS X with Terminal Commands

  1. Launch the “Terminal” window and type the following command to determine the Identifier of the hidden OS X recovery partition and your main partition.

2. Look for the Recovery HD partition and main partition and note the identifiers which should be something like disk0s2, disk0s3, disk0s4 ect…

3. To remove that partition type the following command into the terminal window, replace the disk0s3 with the actual recovery partition Identifier from your machine.

4. Now you’ll want to merge that free space into your main partition so type the following command into terminal, you will put the Partition name and identifier of your main partition first and the recovery partition identifier second.

Reseting the SMC on a Macbook with a non removable battery

  1. Shut down the computer.
  2. Plug in the MagSafe power adapter to a power source, connecting it to the Mac if its not already connected.
  3. On the built-in keyboard, press the (left side) Shift-Control-Option keys and the power button at the same time.
  4. Release all the keys and the power button at the same time.
  5. Press the power button to turn on the computer.

Note: The LED on the MagSafe power adapter may change states or temporarily turn off when you reset the SMC.

This is a fix that might work if your battery will not charge and it says not charging even when it’s plugged into the charger. It is possible that the battery is actually in need of replacement or your charger is bad.
