On iOS 15.5 and newer versions, Apple has updated the ‘Subscriptions’ management user interface in the Settings app. The new cleaner UI separates the subscribed services into active or inactive sections and adds more space between them.
Earlier, the tech company allows developers to offer an auto-renewable subscription price increase feature that enables them to charge subscription price increase on the App Store, automatically without requiring the user to permit the increase and disrupt the service. Users who do not agree with the new price can cancel the subscription through the Settings app.
New ‘Subscription’ management UI to resonate with other changes in the Settings app on iOS 15
The ‘Subscriptions’ management section on iOS allows users to easily pay for, renew, or cancel all of their subscriptions in a place.
MacRumors notes that new ‘Subscritpion’ UI is appearing on devices running on iOS 15.5 or newer and iPadOS 15.5 or newer updates. This means it will also be part of iOS 16. The update is pushed automatically on compatible devices and does not require a software update.
Apple is expected to launch new hardware susbcription plans as well for consumers to pay for new Apple products over monthly installments. Although it appears to be similar to the currently available “Apple Pay Later”, the alleged hardware susbcription plans will be tied to users Apple ID and the cost of installment will be determined by the price of the purchases product.
Maybe the rumored hardware susbcription management will be part of the ‘Subscriptions’ section in the Settings app, along with services.
In May, Apple released iOS 15.5 and iPadOS 15.5 to public which included the “Communication Safety in Messages” feature has now rolled out to the U.K., Canada, Australia, and New Zealand, new a “automatically download” feature for Podcasts app, send and request buttons for Apple Pay Cash card in the Wallet app, addition of external links for third-party Readers app, removal of sensitive locations from the Memories in Photos app, playback control support in the Apple Music API, and more.
