How does device return-for-refund affect Apple TV+ yearlong trial?

Yesterday I purchased iPad from Apple Store. I've activated Apple TV+ yearlong trial. I wonder: If it turns out that I return the device, will I be charged for Apple TV+ before the one-year period ends? Lesser question: Will the yearlong trial come to an end immediately? Thanks in advance.

I guess that it'll sadly come to an abrupt end once the account has been processed etc. Apple seem to be highly efficient these days and being honest, they never give things away for free ;) gotta admit even if I buy a 99p iTunes music track with two hours I have an invoice emailed to me with the amount instantly taken out of my account.
I'm sure that you'll receive some kind of notification from Apple about this with the option of paying for the service etc.

I purchased my other half an iPad Air 3 2 weeks ago. When he signed in he got the year long trial but decided to return it and get a mint second hand iPad Pro 11 instead. The free year is still active and his usual monthly payment would have been due last week as he was already a subscriber. So maybe it does keep active.
