Latest iOS beta reminds you to unsubscribe from paid services during uninstalls
MANILA, Philippines – Apple is apparently putting a small new feature that could provide a noticeable impact to users of apps with paid subscriptions.
MacStories editor Federico Viticci tweeted on Tuesday, June 18, that Apple appears to be prompting users if they have a subscription to an app they're uninstalling from their device.
Never seen this alert before – Apple now tells you if an app you're deleting has a subscription still active. Good move.— Federico Viticci (@viticci) June 18, 2019

The feature lets users manage their subscription for those given applications before continuing the uninstall process.
Viticci added the notice was seen on iOS 13 Beta 2.
As a report from The Verge adds, the beta version feature follows other tweaks made by Apple to add transparency to app payment terms. These include changes to their guidelines to help give users more information about how much they're actually paying for a subscription, as well as adding confirmation steps during signups and some reorganization of the iOS menus to make management of subscriptions easier. – Rappler.com
