I have made purchases on my iPhone from iTunes, and that was all well and good, no problems there. My problem is, why do I keep being debited a dollar each month even when I haven't made any purchases?

Is this a recurring fee for purchasing on iTunes or something?

Apple doesn't charge any fees for using the iTunes or app stores. If you're getting a recurring bill, you probably made an auto-renewing purchase (either a newspaper/magazine app, or some iTunes video content—regular apps aren't permitted to use auto-renewing in-app purchases).

You can manage or turn off these subscriptions in iTunes on iOS or OS X, have a look at Apple's instructions.

50GB of storage in iCloud Drive also costs $1 (Or rather, $0.99) – CraftedCart Oct 24 '15 at 16:51
