  • What is the best home set up for a family to share/use apple products

    Hi, I am relatively new to apple (have an iPad) and having been a PC user for years I was pleasantly surprised with the apple experience and am now trying to work out the best set up for me, my husband and young son as I am buying them both of them apple products this Christmas.  New Mac laptop/ ipad for hubby and then an ipod touch for my son oh and a new mac laptop for me. We are also thinking of moving from Blackberries to iPhones. Yes we seem to be hooked! but i am unsure about the home family set up and how to replace my PC network that I run off an 8TB server.
    In reading the forums I keep seeing people talk about problems they have with two apple IDs and trying to merge them. I have also heard about a family ID allowing us to share apps legally.  I am really nervous of setting us up wrong and then having problems later and hence i am now looking for some advice on how to share as much as we can legally but also make usage practical and not invading each others privacy. thoughts so far:
    Music - I think we are happy to share the same music and access using one ID (we currently don't buy much music from apple but have lots of CDs we share).
    Photos - It would be nice to share photos - as long as my son or husband cannot accidentally delete photos of mine (which is my biggest concern). I currently load all camera photos onto my 8TB storage box as the network owner and my husband has full access to copy any photo to his laptop but can never delete the original copies by accident.
    Apps - If possible i would like us to share these but they are cheap enough these days to separate if really needed. Would be good to share licence for pages etc though
    cloud, contacts, facetime, email -  this is what is making me consider separate IDs or learning how to have multiple users in one apple ID - I do not want to have to share synced contacts with my husband. I have near 300 contacts now through work etc and he will not want them plus i will not want his or him being able to delete mine by mistake. and then for email and facetime, well I want to give him his privacy so I do not receive his messages etc. especially now that we are considering switching to iPhones
    Then last but not least, i don't know the best solution for my son. he is only 7 years old so even though I don't want to pay for things again I don't want him being able to download "just any" app from the purchased icon in Appstore. Also, is there a child friendly setting to prevent him from viewing inappropriate content on the internet?
    Appreciate I have asked a lot of questions here but I am looking for any genuine advice out there. Thank you in advance to any potential advisers.

    Welcome to the Apple Community.
    You don't need to use the same ID on a device for iCloud and iTunes.
    iCloud covers mail, contacts, calendars, reminders, notes, bookmarks, photostream, document syncing etc and for these I recommend you each have your own ID's, this will stop others from having access to and likely more importantly being able to edit or even delete your personal information.
    Someone of Age needs to be responsible for an account, so for younger children you will need to create and be responsible for an account yourself but let the child use it.
    For iTunes you could use a single account so everyone can share music and apps or you could use separate accounts (there are ways to share content between users, Apple provides homesharing to do this).
    When choosing how to proceed with iTunes, it might be worth remembering that someday your children will reach 21 (or whatever age they feel they have become independent) and will likely want their own account, changing accounts later may make it difficult to access previous content.
    Photostream now has shared albums, so you can share just what you want with others. Shared photos using shared albums cannot be deleted by others with different accounts, but if you all shared the same account they could be.
    Facetime and messages can also use an ID independently of each other, iCloud and iTunes. Separate ID's are recommended for these, joint accounts can be problematic.
    iTunes has parental controls for youngsters, however at 7, I suggest you don't reveal the password to him and enter it yourself when he needs to purchase something, otherwise you may receive unexpected bills.

    If it hasn't arrived after a few hours and isn't in a spam filter, you need to contact Apple. Click here, phone them, and ask for the Account Security team, or fill out and submit this form.

  • Some of my contacts are recieving FaceTime or FaceTime audio requests that I am not making but are coming from the assigned iCloud email address that I do not use for FaceTime

    A few of my contacts are recieving FaceTime or FaceTime audio requests generating from my iCloud email address. Additionally some of my contacts, including my husband are recieving texts that say they are generated from me (as their contact) but I am not texting nor do I have access to that particular thread and I am not recieving all of my iMessages from another one of my contacts, but she shows that they are sent. This all seems to be related to a single issue and Im starting to freak out that my apple account or a portion of it was hacked.
    A few months ago my husband, out of town, initiated a FaceTime session and someone else answered it, and hung up. He then initiated it again and this time it came through and I answered it. At that time I changed my apple ID password. But now it seems like I am having similar if not escalating issues with this. What do I do?

  • I have updated my Apple ID and password, but am now getting a message that iCloud can't sync. On my iPod Touch, it still is showing up as my old Apple ID/email address.

    Thanks!  I found an earlier post making reference to deleting the account and then signing back in with the new info -- basically the same idea.  Thanks for your help!

  • HT204053 I only have one e-mail, how do I set up separate apple IDs for three family members ?

    How do I create apple IdS for three family members with the same e-mail? They are kids and have no e-mail.

    You can configure a new email address for them using the @cloud.com server suffix. Do that when you open an iCloud account for each and set up the separate Apple IDs that will each be tied to a different email address.

  • Can anyone tell me how to stop boxes from popping up asking for my family members apple id?

    Not something I would suspect Apple could help with. The most obvious solution is to,change your email address. You might also check with your email provider and see if there an any anti-spam settings on the server that would help.

    There should be no issues. Its designed to work like that.  You don't change Apple IDs just because you get a new device.

    Is there any chance that the phones can fall out of sync?
    Unlikely. But nothing is impossible.   Though I don;t see how that would happen. As long as both are signed into the Same Apple ID / iCloud Account they will be N'Sync. (Bad Joke)

    If I get a message or buy an app or take a photo on the iPhone 5, how do I get those things onto the iPhone 6?
    If you buy an App, you have 2 ways to get it to the iPhone6: If Automatic Downloads is enabled in Settings->iTunes & App Store, it will automatically download to the iPhone 6 when you buy it on the 5 and vice versa if you buy it on the 6, it will download to the 5.
    Alternatively, you can simply go to the App Store App->Updates->Purchased and look for the App there and download it. Purchased Apps will not require payment again. i.e They'll be free to download to the iPhone 6 once purchased.
    SMS Messages will sync over using Continuity as long as they are on the same Wifi network. Otherwise, restoring the iPhone 5 backup to the iPhone 6 will transfer all messages received up until the backup was made onto the iPhone 6.
    Images, can be transferred either through Photo Stream
    My Photo Stream FAQ - Apple Support
    Or any Cloud service you want such as Dropbox, or One Drive.
    mannyace wrote:
    Also, something i forgot to ask initially: Should I update the iPhone 5 to iOS 8 first or does that not matter?
    If you want the Continuity features as explained above you need to update the iPhone 5 to iOS 8. Otherwise its not all that important.

  • Can't change Apple ID Email address

    I have Apple ID associated with old hotmail.com email account and now i want to change it to my actual email account on yahoo.com.
    When Face time was released by apple i used my Apple ID to login and added my yahoo email account like another email.
    now when i try to change my Apple ID email from web sit i receive error "This email address is already in use or you may already have an Apple ID associated with this email address. Please try again or sign in using your existing Apple ID." but when i use App Store to manage my account and change my email from there it accepts but on yahoo i receive email only information that my account info have changed and when i try to login it says that my email is not verified and asks me to verify, also on web site on my account management my primary email have status "unverified" and option to resend verification email which i click and i don't receive nothing on my yahoo account.
    Do you people have any idea how i can change my Apple ID to my new yahoo account and if this issue is connected with apple or yahoo?
    Thank you!

    I've had this problem for a few years and last night with the help of apple support, cracked it.
    Here's what to do.
    Create a new email that isn't associated with apple. And make it you Apple ID using the following steps.
    1) Make sure you're using the latest version of iTunes. You can download iTunes, free-of-charge, from the Apple website:
    http://www.apple.com/itunes/download
    Note: Installing the latest version of iTunes will not affect your library or any items in your account that you haven't downloaded.
    2) Open iTunes, then from the Store pull-down menu at the top, choose Sign In.
    3) Enter your iTunes Store account name and password and then click Sign In.
    4) From the pull-down Store menu at the top, choose View My Account, or click the link below:
    https://buy.itunes.apple.com/WebObjects/MZFinance.woa/wa/accountSummary
    5) If prompted, enter your iTunes Store account name and password, then click the View Account button.
    6) Click the Edit button on the Apple Account Information screen.
    7) Enter a new Apple ID (must be an email address) and/or a new password. Please make sure the email address you enter is one that you actively check. It is not possible to make the iTunes Store send email to an address different than the one being used for your Apple ID.
    8) Click Done to save your changes.
    Once this email has been verified. Use "manage accounts" https://appleid.apple.com/cgi-bin/WebObjects/MyAppleId.woa/ to change your Apple IDs to the desired email address.

    Thanks Lawrence. I've spent over 3 hours on the phone/chatting to online support and none of it seemed to help as it all revolved around resetting emails etc but can't do any of it without my access to my old email. Now my phone won't take cloud because they advised to set up new apple ID and use that, but can't sign out of old one completely. Also doesn't help because my phone and laptop are set up on the old one. Thanks for the help.

  • How can I change my apple ID email address?

    How can I change my apple ID email address?

    I just did follow Varjak's instruction, but it refused. I was asked to enter my Apple ID's email address which unfortunately is the same as my Apple ID. I created two different passwords for each Apple ID n primary email address when I set up my I tune account in the first place, however.
    I do remember my Apple ID password because I have used it every time I installed new apps, but I completely forgot my password for the primary email address because I've never used it at all! I have another email address which I actively use it for all my email. I want to change my primary email address which happened to be my Apple ID as well to the one I actively use.
    Because of the explained problem, I can't log in to Icloud as I have been asked to verify by following the instruction sent to my primary email address.
    I would really appreciate it if any one can help me solve this problem.
    Thank you all.

  • HT1918 My Apple ID (email address) is somehow registered to the US store even though I live in the UK. Can I close the US account and open a UK one with the same ID/email?

    My Apple ID (email address) is somehow registered to the US store even though I live in the UK. Is there any way I can close the US account and open a UK one with the same ID/email?

    No, but you can change the country of your iTunes Store account. Sign into your iTunes Store account and click the "change country" link. You'll need a valid UK credit card to complete the change. If you have any credit balance remaining, you'll need to contact the iTunes Store to clear that for you before you'll be able to change the country.
    Note that if you purchased anything from the US iTunes Store, you probably will not be able to re-download it nor update apps once you change the country. So you may prefer to set up a new email address so you can create a new account in the UK iTunes Store. You can change the email address to which receipts and other notices are sent to your actual email address, if you prefer.
    Regards.
