Tip

If you're using iTunes on an iPhone, iPad or iPod touch, you remove a credit card using the Settings app rather than iTunes itself. Tap the Settings icon on the Home screen, touch iTunes & App Store, tap your Apple ID and then tap View Apple ID on the pop-up dialog. Touch Payment Information, remove your credit card and then tap Done.

Tip

You can’t set your payment method to None if you’re using Family Sharing and your Apple ID is set up as the Family Organizer. A payment method of some type must be associated with any Apple ID that's set as the Family Organizer.

Tip

Only the Family Organizer can edit payment information when Family Sharing is being used. An error appears if another Apple ID attempts to change the Family Sharing payment method.
