How do i set up multiple iCloud accounts on the same mac?

how do i set up multiple iCloud accounts on the same mac?

Interesting - I was sure I'd seen a note somewhere that it was only Mail, but this article:
http://support.apple.com/kb/ts4020
does say
Your secondary iCloud accounts can be set up and viewed in Settings > Mail, Contacts, Calendars on your iOS device, or Apple () menu > System Preferences > Mail, Contacts, Calendars on OS X Lion. You may choose to do this if you have a second iCloud account and need to access its Mail, Contacts, or Calendar data. 
Note: While you can configure multiple iCloud Mail accounts in iOS, Push mail will only work for the primary iCloud account in iOS. Secondary account(s) will check for mail based on the settings in Settings > Mail, Contacts, Calendars > Fetch New Data.
It's not something I can test - I suppose the second account's data gets added to the lists in iCal and Address Book?

    Can i have multiple iCloud accounts with the same Apple id

    Welcome to the Apple Community.
    No, your ID is essentially your account. You can have email aliases and you can have multiple accounts, but I don't think that's what you are asking.

  • Is there a way to photostream pictures from two separate iCloud accounts to the same mac, for display in iPhoto?

    Is there a way to photostream pictures from two separate iCloud accounts (two iphones that I own) to the same mac, for simultaneous display in iPhoto?

    On a Mac, PhoneView is one option (I've been happily using for a year or two). TouchCopy is another (have not heard anything negative about it).
    You'll only get back the low-res versions that were downsized when synced to the phone, but better than nothing.

  • How do I set up multiple iCloud accounts on one Apple ID?

    My whole family uses the same Apple ID, but we all want separate iCloud accounts, because I keep on getting contacts from my children's iPhones and iPads. They want accounts between their iPads and iPhones, but I want a separate iCloud. How do they set up a new iCloud on their devices (they don't have Macs)?

    Welcome to the Apple community.
    An apple ID is an account. If your family require that their contacts, calendars etc are separate from each other, they all need their own Apple ID (account).
    iCloud is a different service from iTunes, you can all use different Apple IDs for your iCloud service, would use the same ID for iTunes, thereby being able to share your music, apps, books, TV shows and movies et cetera.

  • How do I set up multiple icloud accounts?

    We have four iphone 5 and four ipads.  We all use the same Apple ID, but I am wanting to create seperate icloud accounts for back up purposes.  How do I do this?
    Thanks!

    Everyone should have their own iCloud account to separate personal things like mail, contacts, calendars from each other, but it doesn't make sense to set up different accouts on all devices just for backups.
    You could set up one primary iCloud account in "Settings > iCloud" with that you could also create backups, store app data and Find my iPhone. For services like email, contacts etc., you could set up addional accounts in "Settings > Mail, Contacts, Calendars".

  • I deleted my Firefox Sync Account. How can I set up a new account on the same device?

    Now, when I open Firefox, and go to Tools, there is only the option to "Sync Now," rather than the option to "Set Up Sync." My account is definitely deleted, b/c Sync replies "Unable to locate your account" if I try to sync. How do I set up a new Sync Account on this same device? Thanks.

    karenbee,
    Here's the solution for PCs: Tools>Options, then click Sync in the Options window. Good luck.

  • How do I add a new iCloud account to the same computer?

    My wife has a new iPad. We use the same computer so I want her to have her new iCloud account on our computer. I have a iCloud account already.

    This solved my problem. However, she has to log in to use her account which means I have to log out. It would be nice to be able to log in and log out with a few clicks of the mouse but that is probably asking too much.
    Thanks for your help!

  • Is there any way to merge data from multiple user accounts on the same mac?

    After a HD crash I reconstructed from Time Machine. Somehow I created multiple users and the data is different. I'd like to eliminate the user accounts and get to just a single user. Anything there?

    help, how do I set up an icloud account on my macbook pro with 10.6.8 — all it has is "mobile me" under internet and wireless on my system doc????

    You should check that your Mac meets the requirements for upgrading.
    The requirements for Lion are:
    Mac computer with an Intel Core 2 Duo, Core i3, Core i5, Core i7, or Xeon processor
    2GB of memory
    OS X v10.6.6 or later (v10.6.8 recommended)
    7GB of available space
    To purchase it you will have to ring Apple at the number given at the bottom left of this page.
    The requirements for Mountain Lion are listed here:
    http://www.apple.com/osx/specs/
    It is available from the Mac App Store (in Applications).
    You should be aware that PPC programs (such as AppleWorks) will not run on Lion or above; and some other applications may not be compatible - there is a useful compatibility checklist at http://roaringapps.com/apps:table
