Syncing 2 iPhones on the same iTunes Library

Is it possible to sync to iPhones to the same iTunes library? So games etc get synced to both phones? BUT can both iPhones sync to the Music Library differently?

Itunes recognizes each device, so you can set each to sync whatever you like.

  • Can I sync 2 iPhones with the same iTune library?

    I am currently using an iPhone 3GS and have no problems with it.  I also have an iPod Classic synshed to the same iTunes library with no issues.
    My question is: Can I also synch my old iPhone 3G so that my kids can use it to play some games, videos and music, synched from my library, with SIM card?

    Try it and see what happens. I don't see why it wouldn't work.
    If you DO have problems, put the phone in Airplane Mode. And see if that helps.

  • Can I use my ipod and an iphone on the same itunes library?

    Hi
    I want to buy an iphone but when I asked the sales assistant if I could use my ipod and iphone on the one itunes library she said she thought I should be able to but was not 100% sure. I want to be able to play my music, audio books etc on both.

    How do you use the same itunes library for multipul ipods/iphones? >
    First of all, when it comes to music I create playlists. That makes it more easy to handle on different devices.
    When I plug in my iPhone I select the playlists, video or other data I want to have and sync. Same with my iPods. After that I have similar playlists and data on my iPhone and iPods, even calendar and adressbook are updated.
    Hope this helps,

  • Can 2 iPhones control the same iTunes Library with Remote?

    Hi,
    Does anyone know if you can authorize 2 iPhones to control the same iTunes library using the iPhone Remote app? Or can only one iPhone be authorized at any one time?
    Thanks!

    Hey John,
    Yes, you can have multiple iPhones remote controlling iTunes.

  • Can I sync two iphones to the same itunes library

    Trying to find out if I can sync my iphone4S and my husband's with the same itunes account. Is this possible? My phone was used initially to set up itunes; the pc recognizes his phone (serial number matches) by the sync fails.

    You can sync multiple devices with a single iTunes library.

  • Synching a second iPhone to the same iTunes library.

    My wife and I have just got iPhones. I have an Apple ID but my wife does not. In the past we have synced the family iPad, iPod Touch and Nano to the iTunes library on our iMac. Music and Apps were shared across these devices without any problems.
    I've synced my iPhone to iTunes. Before my wife tries to synch parts of the music library and selected Apps should she:
    1. Proceed using my Apple ID?
    2. Get her own Apple ID and synch after creating a separate user login on the iMac? If I understand correctly I'd have to move the iTunes library into a public folder which would be accessible to all users of the iMac. In order to synch the phone in the future she'd have to log in to her account on the iMac.
    If she chooses the first option she misses the opportunity to get 5GB of iCloud storage.
    If she takes the second option can we both access and share any subsequent purchases, be they Apps, music or movies?
    I've searched the discussions forum and followed various links to knowledge base articles but have yet to find a clear answer to these circumstances. I hope someone can clarify things.
    Thanks.
    Will Percy

    You both need, & should use different Apple ID's for iCloud, iMessage & FaceTime. You both can continue to use the same Apple ID for iTunes content.
    Your wife needs an Apple ID for iMessage, FaceTime & iCloud.
    The Apple ID needs to be a verified email address. Once you have an email address, that can be verified, go here & create the ID:
    https://appleid.apple.com/cgi-bin/WebObjects/MyAppleId.woa/wa/createAppleId
    Then on her phone, turn off Contacts, Calendars, etc. for iCloud. You'll be prompted to keep the data or delete it from the phone, then turn off iMessage, FaceTime & delete the iCloud account...Settings>iCloud...scroll down...delete account. Then, setup iCloud using the new Apple ID, turn on iMessage & Facetime.
    This will have no affect on the ID you both share for iTunes content, & you can continue to do so.

  • How do 2 iphones share the same itunes library?

    My partner & I initially had 1 ipod classic for home use with a massive library. We then had 2 smaller ipods for car & travel etc. So we have 1 apple ID where we both purchase music & just share it.
    I then bought an iphone & happily used it. My partner then recently got an iphone. Now, some texts & photos get shared on both phones ( as we use the same apple ID) & they both get filled up with data as they share everything.
    What is the easiest way of seperating them. If we now get another ID presumably we wont be able to share the itunes library we've built up (ie 30 years worth of Cds & last 6 years of downloads) and don't want to copy it.
    V confused. Dont want to lose individual photos or numbers & we are v low tech!

  • HT1495 If I have an IPHONE with my own Apple ID and my husband has his IPHONE with his Apple ID, can we sync them to the same ITUNES Library on the same PC??

    Confused....

    As long as you have iTunes logged in with your Apple ID, you can just plug your phone in and sync it, and all your music will appear as your Library (e.g. "Nolan's Music"). When your husband plugs his phone in, he'll probably have to log you out and login with his Apple ID, before he syncs his phone.
    The problem is that Apple IDs are accounts. Your phone is linked to your account, and his phone is linked to his account. I don't think you can sync them both while logged in to one of those accounts. Have you sync'd your phones before? What happens when you plug them in?

  • HT1386 Can i sync multipler iOS devices like iPad, iPhones on the same iTunes? Can each iOS device have different contents which are subsets of the iTunes complete library

    Can i sync multipler iOS devices like iPad, iPhones on the same iTunes? Can each iOS device have different contents which are subsets of the iTunes complete library

    You can share a library with as many devices as you want but they cannot have seperate subsets like you wish. They would all have access to all information in the library. You could "Manually" sync content to each device by doing the following:
    On Mac: iTunes > Preferences > Devices Tab > Put a check in the box next to sentence that says "Prevent iPods, iPhones, and iPads from syncing automatically > Then click ok.
    On Pc: Edit > Preferences > Devices Tab > Put a check in the box next to sentence that says "Prevent iPods, iPhones, and iPads from syncing automatically > Then click ok.
    To manually sync data from iTunes to devices see article below:
     http://support.apple.com/kb/HT1351
    If you do not want all devices to have access to all the media from the main library, you would need to create a library for each device. See the article below for more info:

    Hope this helps.

  • HT1535 I own an iPhone4, an iPod 3rd generation and an iPad 2. I use the same iTunes library but unfortunately synced iPad with a different computer before syncing to my own. Do I risk losing the films/apps I've downloaded onto my iPad if I sync with my i

    I don't want to sync what is on my iPod to my iPad. (I have a 32gb iPod but only 16gb on iPad. The iPod I use mostly for music.) I can't seem to add the films I have downloaded onto iPad to iTunes. If I could do that, I could erase them from iPad to create more storage.
    This is intensely confusing, sorry.

    Question.....
    "I own an iPhone4, an iPod 3rd generation and an iPad 2. I use the same iTunes library but unfortunately synced iPad with a different computer before syncing to my own. Do I risk losing the films/apps I've downloaded onto my iPad if I sync with my iPod?"
    Answer.....
    Yes you will lose the films that you downloaded to the iPad when you sync with your own iTunes unless you transfer the purchases into your own iTunes library. Were these movies that you purchased? If so, you might be able to download them again for free. Do you have multiple computers that you sync from or is this someone else's purchased content?
    You can select whatever you want to sync to all of your devices in iTunes, you do not have to sync the same content to all device.

  • Can you sync your ipad & iphone to the same itunes account yet or?

    its been over year now and the iPad 2 is out, its apparently evident that when something goes wrong no one response here with a solution, can you or can you not sync both a iPad and iPhone with the same iTunes account flawlessly yet, because i helped over 4 people to do this and every single method seems to be work arounds.
    has anyone figured out how to sync both devices to the same itunes account with out work arounds after all your apps get scattered outside their folders?

    You have always been able to sync as many devices as you like to one account/library/computer.
    Plug in one device, select what you want to sync, then sync.
    Unplug that device.
    Plug in the other device, select what you want to sync, then sync.

  • Can I sync the same iTunes library on both my iMac and my MacBook Pro?

    Can I sync the same iTunes library on both my iMac and my MacBook Pro?  I've been connecting my iPhone to each and it's causing problems for me with them being different, despite my purchases always being under the same Apple ID.

    The easy way to do this is to keep the library on an external drive which you can plug into either computer.  Of course this isn't always the desirable solution.  You can try routinely copying the library from computer to computer though this gets tiresome. 
    Of possible relevance:
    Using iPhone, iPad, or iPod with multiple computers - http://support.apple.com/kb/HT1202 - You can manage your iPhone, iPad, or iPod with multiple computers as long as you have set the device to "Manually manage music."  -  e.g. adding music from a second computer to an i-device.
