(Updated 13/2/15) The below announcement applies to all Motor Sport digital subscription customers who have a subscription direct with Apple/iTunes. This does not apply to customers with a digital or Bundle subscription to Motor Sport purchased via Motor Sport magazine direct or Google Play.
Apple have increased App prices in response to an increase in VAT in the EU and currency exchange changes. In doing so they appear to have cancelled all auto-renewing subscriptions, affecting our Motor Sport digital subscription customers.
These auto-renewals allow users to subscribe to in-app purchases through a recurring payment that allows people to subscribe to magazines using Apple’s Newsstand. While Apple turning off the auto-renewals has prevented charging users the higher prices without their consent, neither users or publishers have been made aware of the change. Instead the subscriptions will just have been cancelled.
Here at Motor Sport we have reduced our digital subscription prices within the Apple App Store and made sure the App is back to our previous prices. In order to continue receiving Motor Sport, customers will need to turn their auto-renewals back on through settings or by re-purchasing the subscription through the app or Motor Sport magazine direct.
Checking your subscription status and reactivating your subscription is a short process. Please follow the steps below and you should be back up and running within 5 minutes.
To check your subscription status with Apple:
• Go to the Settings tab on your iPad.
• Click on the iTunes and App Store button on the left hand side.
• Click on your Apple ID.
• Then click on the Subscriptions button.
• It will then show the subs you have through Apple
• Then click on the Motor Sport subscription and it will then show you your sub status with Apple and how many issues you have left or if it is expired.
(At Motor Sport we don’t actually have the ability to see what your subscription status is with Apple, as you have bought the magazine from them directly. Apple doesn’t share any purchaser’s information with us)
