How To Cancel Kindle Unlimited Subscription on an iPhone?

Millions of people rely on their iPhones to get to the content they want and need. But sometimes, a problem comes up that makes you want to cancel your Kindle Unlimited subscription. This guide will show you how to cancel Kindle Unlimited on an iPhone.

If you’re wondering why you’d want to cancel Kindle Unlimited on an iPhone, it’s because of the restrictions that come along with the service. You can only use Kindle books on devices that support the Kindle application, and you can only read from a Kindle book when the app is open.

Your next step is to make sure you’re reading from a device that supports the Kindle app and has access to a Wi-Fi network.

Then scroll down and select “iBooks.” Now locate your “Library” section and select “Kindle Store.” Next, select “Cancel Subscription.”

What Happens When You Cancel Kindle Unlimited?

Many people have been asking questions about the changes to Amazon’s Kindle Unlimited policy. This article will help you understand what happens when you cancel Kindle Unlimited.

If you cancel your Kindle Unlimited subscription before the end of your current billing period, you will not get charged again when your next billing period begins. You will receive a notification that your subscription is ending on or soon after the last day of that month’s billing period. More so, you will no longer have access to content you have downloaded with the service.

Suppose you have a Kindle Unlimited subscription, you’ll need to cancel that first, then your Audible membership. If you have both a Kindle Unlimited and an Audible membership, cancel your Kindle Unlimited first. You do not need to cancel your Amazon Prime membership, but you will lose access to the lending library of eBooks, as well as the borrowing option. A person can cancel the subscription anytime during that duration and still keep their books and audiobooks.

Can’t Cancel Kindle Unlimited?

I’ve heard from some of the Kindle Unlimited users that they were having trouble canceling their subscriptions, even after following the instructions above. These are some reasons you might have trouble canceling your Kindle Unlimited subscription:

  • You forgot to activate the 1-click payment method.
  • You have not yet paid for the partial month in which you are attempting to cancel.
  • You have not connected your device to the internet.
  • You have a prepaid account and need to top it up before making purchases or changes.


If you’ve tried following these steps but are still having trouble, we recommend the following troubleshooting tips:

Make sure you’re signed into the correct Amazon account. You can check this by going to Manage Your Content and Devices and looking at the email address in the top right corner of your screen.

If it doesn’t match the email associated with your Kindle Unlimited account, click on Account & Lists, then select Sign Out. Then, go back to Manage Your Content and Devices (where you should get automatically signed out), click on Account & Lists again, and sign in with the correct email address.
