You can continue to share the same iTunes account ID with your daughter and set up a separate iCloud account with a different ID.
=> is this a different iCloud account for each device?  I thought iCloud account ID had to match some iTunes account ID, for which we only have one i Tunes account?
You need to set up a separate iCloud account for each person that does not want to share their iCloud data.  If you share an iCloud account with someone, any data you both sync with the shared account is merged, and you end up with each other's data on your device(s).  If, for example, you owned two devices and someone else in the family also owned two devices, you would both want your own iCloud accounts, and you would each set up your personal iCloud account on the two devices you own.  In other words, you want a separate iCloud account for each person to be used on the devices they own.  Each iCloud account has to have a separate Apple ID.  The ID does not need to be the same as the ID used for iTunes.  Many families perfer to share the same iTunes account/ID, but maintain separate iCloud accounts with different IDs to keep there data separated.

=> what ID, iTunes?  So I can have a separate iCloud account "only" ID which I also assume must be some [valid] email address?  The children currently do not have email accounts anywhere.
Yes, I was referring to the iTunes ID not needing to be the same as the ID used for iCloud.  In order to set up an Apple ID your children will need to have a valid email address that can be verified by Apple.  Apple requires this so they have a way of contacting the owner if there is a problem with the account, such as when you may need to reset the password on the account.  When you set up the ID, Apple will send a verification email to this email account and you will need to click on the verificating link in the email to complete the process.  If they don't currently have an email account you can just set one up with gmail or another free email hosting service.  They don't have to use the account but you will need it to set up the ID.

  • Can someone please assist me. I was given an iPod 3G as a gift and I tried to download various apps and it told me that my iPod needs to be iOS 7 or more but I checked and my iPod is at its latest upgrade which is 6.1.6, how can I get those app?

    See a a version compable with your iPod is available:
    Starting when iOS 7 was released, Apple now allows downloading the last compatible version of some apps (iOS 4.2.1 and later only)
    App Store: Downloading Older Versions of Apps on iOS - Apple Club
    App Store: Install the latest compatible version of an app
    You first have to download the non-compatible version on your computer. Then when you try to purchase the version on your iPod you will be offered a compatible version if one exists.
    Also, if you have iOS 6.1.6 yo have a 4G (has cameras). A 3G does not have cameras and can only go to 5.1.1

    Try redownloading them:

    Next contact iTunes:

  • In iCloud preferences when I deselect an item, e.g. documents I get a message saying the info in documents will be taken off my mac and kept in iCloud. I would rather have in on my mac and not in iCloud. How can I keep my data?

    Macbook pro, os 9.4.1.
    In iCloud preferences when I deselect an item, e.g. documents I get a message saying the info in documents will be taken off my mac and kept in iCloud. I would rather have the info on my mac and not in iCloud. How can I keep my data on my mac?

    My mistake, my OS is 10.9.4.
    Thank you for your reply.
    I guess, I really don't understand iCloud and how files are stored and where. I gather when I was asked to set it up I should have declined. Anyway, it looks like some of my files are stored in the cloud. If I shut off "documents" in the preferences it will remove those docs from my macbook, but they will remain in the cloud and I could get access to them for another computer if I set it up.
    I also gather to avoid this, I have to, on a file by file basis, save them to my mac and then they will be on my mac. What I don't get, is that these files must exist on my mac because I can edit it without being connected to the internet. Maybe those files I see when disconnected from the internet are on my mac and I wouldn't be able to see cloud files unless I was connected to the internet.
    My concern is that when I deselect "documents" in the iCloud preferences it warns me that those documents on my mac will be removed from my mac. I am afraid to deselect "documents' or "calendars" as a result.
    If I seem confused, I am. Please don't feel obligated to reply if my message is too muddled.

  • HT4528 I forgot my passcode for my iPhone and I had too much content to back it up in iCloud. How can I unlock my phone without having to restore it?

    I forgot my passcode for my iPhone and I had too much content to back it up in iCloud. How can I unlock my phone without having to restore it? I don't want to lose all my contacts and messages.

    You can't. The ONLY solution is to restore the device. If there were an easy way around the passcode lock, it wouldn't serve much purpose, would it?

  • When I bought my iPhone 5s I set up the email account for iCloud with a Shaw Cable address. Shaw was my ISP. I changed ISP's which rendered my iCloud email account as useless. I did reset my AppleID but it didn't change for iCloud. How can I change?

    Ok so now I right the novel. Haha.
    I bought my iPhone 5s and set up the AppleID for iCloud to be the same as the Apple ID I already used for iTunes and the App store. I was using @shaw.ca as part  of the emaill address. I changed my ISP to save money so had to change the Apple ID. I had no issues changing it for iTunes and the App store, but it wouldn't change for iCloud. I don't recall the password and can't have it sent to me as that address does not work any longer.
    What do I do to get my AppleID for iCloud working again?

    Yes, you understood correctly.  From your explanation, you created your hotmail.ca ID by revising the shaw.ca ID.  Given that, you should perform the steps listed in my original post:
    Make sure you are signed into iMessage and FaceTime with your current ID.  If they are signed into the old ID, go to Settings>Messages>Send & Receive and Settings>FaceTime, tap the ID, sign out, then sign back in with your current ID.
    Then temporarily recreate the old ID by going to https://appleid.apple.com, click Manage my Apple ID and sign in with your current iCloud ID.  Click edit next to the primary email account, change it back to your old email address and save the change.  (You should not have to verify the old email account so it doesn’t matter if you no longer have access to it.)  Now go to Settings>iCloud, turn off Find My iDevice and enter your current password when prompted (even though it prompts you for the password for your old ID).  Then save any photo stream photos that you wish to keep to your camera roll (unless using iCloud Photo Library).  When finished goThen go to Settings>iCloud, tap Sign Out (or Delete Account if you are not running iOS 8) and choose Delete from My iDevice when prompted (your iCloud data will still be in iCloud).  Next, go back to https://appleid.apple.com and change your primary email address back to the way it was.  Now you can go to Settings>iCloud and sign back in with your current iCloud ID and password (your data will download back to your device).

  • How can I return a app and get money back?

    How can I return a app?

    Is the app not working as described ? All purchases are considered final, so if the app is working as described then you are probably unlikely to get a refund.
    If it isn't then have you tried deleting and redownloading it via the Purchased tab in the App Store app on your phone, and if that hasn't fixed it then you've tried contacting the develeper ? If you have and haven't had a reply then try the 'report a problem' page to contact iTunes Support : http://reportaproblem.apple.com
    If the 'report a problem' link doesn't work then you can try contacting iTunes support via this page : http://www.apple.com/support/itunes/contact/- click on Contact iTunes Store Support on the right-hand side of the page, then Purchases, Billing & Redemption

  • TS1702 how can I delete camera app and reload?

    I don't want to have to restore my phone just to reload the camera app.  for some reason the app opens to blank screen.  if I use the slide to camera, it works properly but that feature doesn't have the option to forward, send, etc photos.  anyone got a solution as to how I can delete the camera app and reload it?

    You can't delete any of the pre-installed apps. Try a reset:
    Press the sleep/wake button & home button at the same time, keep pressing until you see the Apple logo, then release.
    If that doesn't change things, a restore from backup is the next step.

  • How can I keep certain apps from starting at login?

    I have Break Reminder installed. It isn't compatible with certain accessibility tools. It isn't something that I want to start every time I use the computer. But it does start every time I use the computer. I don't tell the computer to restart apps at start up. I don't list the apps in the Login Items list. It just starts itself. How can I keep it from starting itself?

    go to system preferences / Users Groups / Login items
    (make sure your lock at bottom left side of window is unlocked) if it isn't you will be asked to insert your user password if you don't have one just hit enter (unlock)
    from there you get to choose your startup applications simply add/remove  with +/- under the windows
    once you made changes don't forget to lock the lock to prevent changes and you should be set
    good luck

  • I have an iPad 2, and in my settings I don't have the tab for software updates, how can I get it?

    I have an iPad2 and in settings I don't have the tab for software updates, how can I get it?

    Your purchases are tied to your Apple ID. If you bought all of the books with the old ID then AFAIK you will have to continue to use that ID in order to continue to sync those books to the iPad.
    You have to update the app with the old ID so I don't see how you could keep the books with the new ID. Maybe I am wrong about this, but someone else will chime in I'm sure and correct me if I am wrong.
