To remove a credit card from an iPhone, you just need to go to your settings, enter the payment information menu and change your payment information to “none.” In total, it’ll only take a minute to remove your card. Just keep in mind that what you’re actually editing is the payment methods for your Apple ID, not just for your iPhone. So if you delete a card off of your iPhone, it’ll also be gone from any other Apple devices you have. It won’t affect Apple Pay, though, as those cards are stored in a different place.
There are afew situations in which Apple won’t let you remove a credit card from an iPhone. The first is if you have an unpaid balance with Apple. Another is if you use the card to make automatic payments for a renewable Apple subscription service. In that case, you’ll have to either cancel the subscription or move it to your new card first. A third case is if your device is part of Family Sharing and you’re not the one who originally set the card on the account.
As long as those cases don’t apply to your situation, you can blaze through the process in 7 easy steps.
Here’s how to remove a credit card from an iPhone:
- Tap the Settings icon on your iPhone.
- Tap your name at the top of the Settings menu.
- Select “Payment & Shipping.”
- Press“Payment Method.”
- Choose the card you want to remove.
- Scroll to the bottom of the next menu and tap “Change Payment Method.”
- Choose “None,” then hit “Next” twice to erase the card’s info from your iPhone and other Apple devices.
Remember, you’re deleting the card’s information from your Apple ID, which means more than just your iPhone will be affected. But you can always add another credit card (or even the same one you just deleted) by repeating steps 1-4, then entering your name and credit card details. You can add a debit card, too.
