Any devices connected to the same icloud account can sync all the data on that account.  For this reason an icloud account is really for a single user.
On a mac, if each user has their own account, then the itunes for that mac account should be set up to connect to that user's icloud account (System preferences>icloud).

  • TS3988 i seem to have set up two different icloud accounts can someone tell me how to correct ?

    I seem to have set up two different icloud accounts one on mac and one on my ipad newest one can someone tell me how to correct this?

    Welcome to the Apple Community.
    Choose which one you are going to use and delete the iCloud account from the other device, then log back in using the details of the account you wish to use.

  • How do I set up different icloud accounts for each family member and make them able to access them on our common mac using their user name on the mac.  I am doing this to make sure kids don't get access to our messages.

    We have several apple products in the family.  I would like to set up different icloud accounts for each memeber.  I lately noticed having activated different devices with same icloud account that each device can access everyones messages by going in their settings and clicking which number or email they want to use to see messages.  Let me make sure I am understood, on my sons ipod in his messages settings he can switch to my cell number and see all my messages.  Re setting the devices isn't my great issue but can i set up each kids user account on my mac to their individual icloud accounts?
    Thanks!

  • HT4859 How do I keep one Apple ID account for the family, yet have different iCloud accounts for calendar, email, etc.??

    How do I keep one Apple ID account for the family, yet have different iCloud accounts for calendar, email, etc.??

    First decide which iPhone will be keeping the current iCloud account.  On the others, go to Settings>iCloud, scroll to the bottom and tap Delete Account.  (This will only delete the account from this phone, not from iCloud.  The phone that will be keeping the account will not be effected by this.)  When prompted about what to do with the iCloud data, be sure to select Keep On iPhone.  Next, set up a new iCloud account using a different Apple ID (if you don't have one, tap Get a Free Apple ID at the bottom).  Then turn iCloud data syncing for contacts, etc. back to On, and when prompted about merging with iCloud, choose Merge.  This will upload the data to the new account.
    Once all your devices have their on iCloud accounts, to un-merge the data you will have to go to icloud.com on your computer, sign into each iCloud account separately and manually delete the data you don't want (such as deleting your son's contacts from your account, and vice versa).
    You should also use separate Apple IDs for services such as iMessage and FaceTime.  Otherwise, you're likely to end up getting each other's text messages and FaceTime calls.  If you need to change these, for iMessage go to Settings>Messages>Send & Receive, tap the ID, sign out, then sign back in with a separate ID (such as the one just created for iCloud).  For FaceTime, do the same thing in Settings>FaceTime.

    Use separate Apple IDs for each family member and use Family Sharing features of those things (if any) that you do want to share. https://www.apple.com/ios/whats-new/family-sharing/

  • HT204053 Setting up two different iCloud accounts

    We use the same Apple ID but want to set up two different iCloud accounts. How do I do that?

    my sister's account can't recovered because she already forgot the secret answer, also her yahoo hacked, so that she can't recover it using her yahoo, then her icloud is off, so that i can't change to another account, the terms and conditions is "unable to connect to the server".
    IS THERE ANY SOLUTION HERE ?

  • HT5622 I own three Apple devices, but my iPad remained associated with my old email address and password. How can I register it with the same new email and password?

    I own three Apple devices, but my iPad remained associated with my old email address and password. How can I register it with the same new email and password?

    If you updated your existing account then try logging out of it on the iPad by tapping on the id in Settings > Store and then log back in and see if that 'refreshes' the account on the iPad. If you created a new account then any content that you purchased/downloaded via the old account will remain tied to that old account, and only that old account can download updates to its apps.

  • Can I set up a secondary icloud account for my boss

    I would like to set up a secondary icloud account for my boss & I to share a calendar and notes only. It would be set up on both our phones. (mine iPhone4s, his iPhone 5c) I am a bit apprehensive, as I want to make sure he doesn't have access to anything from my personal one, or I to his. Can anyone tell me how this is done?
    Thank you.

    That's right.  You will see both calendars when you open the Calendars app (unless you uncheck one of them so it isn't in view), and both sets of Notes in the notes app (if you tap Accounts, then tap All Notes so they are both in view). 
    The only thing you'll want to make sure you do is to go to Settings>Mail,Contacts,Calendars>Default Calendar (in the Calendars section) and choose the calendar you want new calendar events to go to by default.  If you want them to go to your personal calendar, select your primary iCloud account calendar as your default.  You can manually assign new calendar events to either calendar by tapping the Calendar field when you create the event.
    Similarly, you'll want to go to Settings>Notes>Default Account and choose the account you want new notes to be created in by default.  To create a note in the other account, open the Notes app, tap Accounts, then select the other account prior to creating the note.
    Your boss will want to take these same steps in order to ensure that his personal calendar events and notes are created in the correct account too.

  • HT204053 I need 2 separate iCloud accounts for my kids on my device

    I need to create iCloud accounts for my kids. 2 of them to be exact so that we can transfer all their games on our iPad to iCloud accounts and free up space. So far all I figured out was that I needed them to have their own apple Ida's, which they now do.  I can't figure out how to get access to creat the iCloud accounts for them.

    An iOS device is designed to be used by one user only - unlike a computer where multiple accounts can be set up.  The device can only have one icloud account defined at a time.  Are you trying to use one device with multiple users?  Otherwise I'm not understanding your question.

  • HT204053 i used the same apple id for my iphone and my husbands now all our contacts and such are on both phones how do i fix this.  I dont need his contacts on my phone and the other way also.  Should i create a different icloud account for his phone?

    I used the same apple id for my iphone and my husbands now all our contacts and such are together.  How do I undo this?  Do i create him a different icloud account? 

    Yes, start with deleting your account on his device:
    (Settings > iCloud or Settings > Mail, Contacts, Calendar > Your Account)
    In the next step, create a new account on his device:
    (Settings > iCloud or Settings > Mail, Contacts, Calendar > Your Account)

  • Need help Setting up Multiple Static Ip , 1 for each port of the fios router

    Need help Setting up multiple Static Ip on my fios router
    I have been trying to figure out how to set up multiple ip in my fios router.
    However I kind of managed how to set up multiple static ip However the way I want it is for each port of my router to have an external ip signed to it. ( like 4 different modem in 1 )
    Verizon gave me 5 static ip but they can not help me how to set it up.
    Have anyone here done more then one static ip on different ports? I assume that the process will be the after the second static ip.

    You want to set up Static Nat. You will not assign the IP to a port, but rather to a local machine. Figure out what machines you want your IP's to go to. Under the firewall section you will see static nat. Pick the machine you want and enter one of the IP's you were assigned.

  • HT204053 My sister has an iPod and I recently used my iCloud account for her iPod but I see her things and she see's mine, how do I change this

    My sister has an iPod touch and I recently used my iCloud account for her iPod, but I see her things on my iPad 3rd gen and she sees my stuff on her iPod, how do I change this?

    Welcome to the Apple Support Communities
    That's because you are using the same Apple ID. In this case, the easiest way is that your sister creates her Apple ID, and log in iCloud with her Apple ID, so you won't see his thing and she won't see your things

  • How can i move ipod onto a different icloud account pls

    i want to move ipod onto a different icloud account without losing any info on my iphone which is on the same icloud account

    You can only keep data of your calendar, contacts etc. on your device, if you decide to delete your iCloud account from your device. Just go to "Settings > iCloud" scroll down and press on "Delete Account", then choose the option to keep the data on your device. After that sign in with your other account and choose "Merge data".
