Can I use more than one Apple ID on one device

I have seen some answers to this type of question before but not that since the ios 6 so will ask again. My household shares an Apple ID and it has worked great as we have added devices and purchased apps.  My problem now is this, we have hit a point where I have work things on my iPad and iPhone that I really don't need to be shared with the whole family but it isn't a major deal or security risk. I don't want to give up the advantages of having the household ID.  Is there an easy way to have another ID on my iPad and switch between them without having major complications?  I am for the most part a techie so not afraid of these kind of things but I can't afford to lose everything right now and take the time to set it all back up so getting advice here.  Thanks in advance for any help you can give.

You can use more than one apple id, but keep in mind that when apps need updating that you'll will need to sign in with correct credentials to update them.
Share an apple id for the itunes and app stores, but keep your own for icloud, facetime and messages.

  • Can I use more than 1 apple ID on a device

    i need to get all my music from one apple I'd onto my new ipad2 that has another apple I'd

    As long as you authorise your computer that syncs with your iPad for both accounts, you can have two accounts.
    To authorise an account in iTunes go to Store, Authorise this Computer and then enter the Apple ID of the other account.

  • Can u use more than one apple account on your device and itunes

    Can u use more than one apple account on your device and itunes

    Yes, but you have to logout of one, and login to the other.
    If it is an iPhone/iPad/iPod Touch and you buy apps on different accounts, when it comes time to update an app, you have to specify the password for the account used to acquirer the app. You change an iOS account via Settings -> Store -> Apple ID (tap on it), and start by logging out and then you can enter the other Id
    So it is possible, but it can also be a pain.

  • Can I use more than one iTunes account with my apple TV?

    Can I use more than one iTunes account with my apple TV?

    That depends what you mean. If you mean can you purchase from more than one iTunes account on the Apple TV, then the answer is no. If you mean can you stream from more than one iTunes library, which use different accounts, then the answer is yes, so long as they both use the same ID and password for homesharing.

  • HT4437 Can I use more than one Apple account on Apple TV ?

    Can I use more than one Apple account on Apple TV ?

    Welcome to the Apple Community Odjebi.
    Yes just sign in where you signed in for the first account, you can only use one at once and you'll need to switch in the same place you signed in.

  • Can I use more than one iTunes account on my apple TV

    We just purchased our AppleTV and my wife wanted to use her Mac and her iTunes account to listen to music when I am at work. I setup the AppleTV using my iTunes account. Can I use more than one iTunes account on my apple TV?

    You can have both libraries available to the Apple TV at the same time. As I say the key is understanding your iTunes account ID and your homesharing ID are different things (although there is nothing stopping you using one of your iTunes account ID's as the homesharing ID - I do that)
    You need to make sure that the ID and password you use on both libraries and the Apple TV are all the same.
    Also, no need to apologise, the wrong thing to do is not ask and suffer in silence.

  • I keep my library on an external hard drive 4TB.  It's full.  Can I use more than one hard drive to keep my library on?

    I keep my iTunes library on an external hard drive 4TB.  It's full.  Can I use more than one hard drive to keep my library on? Like two 4TB next to each other.

    Create a concatenated disk set
    Increase storage space with a concatenated RAID set (also called “Just a Bunch of Disks” or JBOD). If you need one large disk, but you have only several smaller disks, you can create a concatenated disk set to use several small disks as one large disk.
    Open Disk Utility, in the Utilities folder in Launchpad.
    Select one of the disks that you want in the set, and then click RAID.
    Click Add (+), and type a name for the RAID set.
    Choose a format from the Format pop-up menu. Usually you’ll choose the Mac OS Extended (Journaled) format.
    Choose Concatenated Disk Set from the RAID Type pop-up menu.
    Drag the disks you want to add to the set to the list on the right.
    Click Create.
    Exerpt from:
    Disk Utility 12.x: Create a RAID set - Apple - Support
    Note that the biggest CON to concatenated RAID configurations is vulnerability to volume failure. If either disk fails, the whole volume fails. If you choose this option, I would highly recommend backing up your music to a cloud service. There are very cheap per GB/storage, and some of the most reputable actually offer unlimited storage:

  • HT1420 Can you have more than one device with a different Apple ID authourized to the same computer

    Can you have more than one device with a different Apple ID authourized to the same computer

    I think you are using the same Composition Class on both project. On the properties tab, you can change this number (e.g.: EDGE-1637270).

  • Can you use more than one email address on one account as to enable two or three devices to use imsg????

    Can you use more than one email address on one account as to enable two or three devices to use imsg as when i add new email address's in settings it just says veriyfying and nothing happens????

    If I read your question right, yes.
    My pad has two e mail addresses, and my phone has a phone number as well as a e mail address.  For each device you can add additional 'receive at' addresses in settings.
    Note, when you add a new address, apple will send an e mail to that new address that you need to respond to, to show that it is a valid address.  So look in the inbox of that e mail account for the verification e mail.  Note further, some spam filters think that the verification e mail might be spam, so if it does not show up in your in box, look in any spam file you might have.
    in my case, the verification e mail came within a few minutes of declaring the new address.
    The multiple address are useful if you have more than one device under your apple id, and want to be able to send stuff to that particular device.

    Yes. you have to set up the Midi, pslit it up between the applications. e.g. channels 1-8 to app 1, and channels 9-16 to app 2.
    Then select the channels according to what application you want to play.

  • Can I use more than one database connections in a jdeveloper project?

    I use jdeveloper version 9.0.4.0 (build 1407),Can I use more than one database connections in one jdeveloper project?

    9.0.4 is a fairly old version, so you may only find a few people who know how it worked.
    Assuming you're using ADF BC, once known as BC4J, once know as JBO, in the project, and that the architecture hasn't changed much, then the answer is only 1 connection per project.
    Programmatically you're free to use as many connections via JEE as you see fit, but ADF BC is limited to one connection.

    No you can only use one at a time.

  • Can I use more than one version of Adobe Reader on an iPad, 8.1 touch and 11.1

    Can I use more than one version of Adobe Reader on an iPad  adobe Reader Touch and Reader 11.1 .  .  I use Acrobat XI Pro although I had some old files that were stored on adobe.com from a prior version of acrobat 9 student edition.
    I guess the same question for my Surface Pro2 Computer might apply, although I gather from what I read that you shouldn't have two versions of reader on a computer.

    If I may add a qualification: on a device running full Windows 8, you may have both Adobe Reader Touch and Adobe Reader (normal desktop edition). This does not apply to the primitive devices which cannot run desktop apps (running "Windows RT"), and while I may be wrong, I believe that the Surface 2 is such a device.

  • Can I use more than one bluetooth device at a time with my iphone4

    Can I use more than one bluetooth device at a time with my iphone4

    Anthony
    I have a Plantronics 975 earpiece that works very well with my Razr.  I
    just got a Panasonic KX-TG7873S phone system for my home, it has a
    "Link-to-Cell" cellular convergence solution, from what I understand it is
    just Bluetooth enabled.  I have paired both device with my Razr.  In
    settings, Bluetooth setting, both device show.  But only one device can
    connect at a time.  If my Plantronics is connected and I choose the
    Panasonic device, the Plantronics device disconnects and the Panasonic
    device then says it is connected.  Both devices work when they
    are connected.  Is it because they are both "headsets"?
    So, to have to remember to connect to one or the other device, depending on
    weather I am coming or going is not practical.
