Question: How do I unlink my apple ID from apple music?

I had an apple music account that was linked to my apple ID and american bank account, but I've since cancelled that bank account and now have a UK bank account. My apple ID wont let me change the region to link it to my UK bank, so I created a new apple ID and am trying to subscribe to apple music with my new apple ID with my UK bank account. Every time I try to subscribe with my new ID it just says that I already have an account on this device, and I can't use apple music on my other apple ID because I no longer have a bank card linked to that one and my free trial already ended. How can I fix this issue? I really want to have apple music on my phone.

iPhone 7, iOS 10.3.2

Only ever use one Apple ID. Change country on your main one.

Before you change country make sure you have downloaded and backed up any purchases from your previous country's store. You will not, in most cases, be able to re-download them again once you change countries and it won't be easy to change countries to the previous one once you lose your payment method for the former country (as well as a wait period). As long as you have them on your computer you will be okay.

Change your iTunes Store country or region - https://support.apple.com/HT201389 - In small, faint print, "You might not be able to redownload some of your purchases from your original country or region." This may also mean any subscription services you use may no longer work (e.g., Apple Music).

If you cannot change country then go through the items in the article on changing country. If there are specific problems we can help you with them or you can contact Apple:
