A step by step guide on changing the StoreKit Subscription Renewal Rate for testing Auto-Renewable Subscriptions in XCode.

The guide was made using our Free iOS StoreKit 2 Open Source project which is recommended for developers or business folk wishing to learn about how In-App Purchases or Subscriptions work and the code behind them.

In order for you to be able to change the StoreKit Subscription Renewal Rate and for it to work locally, you must have a StoreKit Configuration File setup with an Auto-Renewable Subscription and have StoreKit testing enabled.

To learn how to do this consult the guides below.

Step One: Select the StoreKit Configuration File
