CREATE A NEW USER
Go to System Preferences --> Create a New User in Users & Groups
Decide on whether to setup as Admin or Standard User.
Switch to the New User by logging out under the Apple in the Menu Bar or use Fast User Switching
Fast User Switching allows other users to leave current applications and windows open. Depending on RAM, you might need to log out rather than use FUS.

    What is the best iPhone 4/4s extended battery case? I've been reading reviews for a bunch of them, but they all seem to say the same thing.

    Personally most of my co-workers are using the Mophie case. They are great quality but can be pretty pricey. All of my fellow co-workers have been using this case to help with the upsetting battery drain that comes with ios5. I have seen people drop the the iPhone with this case on and seems to be a good sturdy case with an extra 9 hour battery life. Anyway's here is their web site if you want to look into these cases further.

    Welcome to the world of digital media. Your can't really transfer it. I don't know what the rules are about transferring to your spouse but I do know that in some cases when you die, your heirs cannot inherit your digital media. This is why there is still an advantage to buying the CD since the usage rights belong to whomever holds the physical media.
    A possible workaround is to burn the songs to a music CD with yout account (tracks only without song titles) and then having your wife upload it as a regular music CD onto her account. It's been a while since i've done this so I'm not sure if it would work now.
    Please note that I'm not advocating copyright and/or TOS violations. I'm only suggesting ways to copy music for your own personal use which has traditonally been permitted. I only did this because I wanted to convert iTunes songs to mp3 files so I could burn them onto a data CD for use in my car. It would make sense that since married couples are a joint entity, this would be personal use.
    Also, I'm not a lawyer so don't take this as legal advice.

    Hi Roger:
    Thanks for the reply.  I think I figured out the problem.  Apple has confused (at least in my mind) the different IDs that people can have.  In the iCloud settings, they use the term Apple ID and not iCloud ID.  I guess there really is no such thing as an iCloud ID.  There are Apple IDs with various attributes.  This is not clearly explained or easy to see (how could I look up to see if my Apple ID is associated with iTunes for example?).
    I created, what I thought were iCloud IDs for each family member, but we all use my Apple ID for iTunes.
    One other question - why does the syncing of Notes using iCloud require an @me.com email account.  That makes no sense to me.
    Thanks for your help!

  • How do I set upmy Imac to allow using both my computer speakers and a Bose SoundLink system as outputs at the same time.  I can use one or the other, but not both.

    how do I set up my Imac to allow using both my computer speakers and a Bose SoundLink system as outputs at the same time.  I can use one or the other, but not both.  From systems Preferences I must select one or the other.  I want both to work all the time.

    Hi,
    I would recommend you to use 0FI_AP_4 rather using both, particularly for many reasons -
    1. DS: 0FI_AP_4  replaces DataSource 0FI_AP_3 and still uses the same extraction structure. For more details refer to the OSS note 410797.
    2. You can run the 0FI_AP_4 independent of any other FI datasources like 0FI_AR_4 and 0FI_GL_4 or even 0FI_GL_14. For more details refer to the OSS note: 551044.
    3. Map the 0FI_AP_4 to DSO: 0FIAP_O03 (or create a Z one as per your requirement).
    4. Load the same to a InfoCube (0FIAP_C03).
    Hope this helps.
    Thanks.

  • How to handle Multiple devices in our family,

    Hi all, I need help. I do not know what to do now that I have many I devices in our family. I have three iPhones, an iPod, iPad, Apple TV
    and iMac. Right now, all the devices are set up on one Apple ID, except for a new iPhone that has not been set up yet.
    What is the best way to deal with this situation? I would like to be able to use the Find IPhone on any device to find the other. I would also like each device to be able to use face time and iChat independently. Is it possible? 
    I was told to set up separate ICloud  accounts, but since the devices are assigned to an apple ID already? Is that possible? Sorry about being so naive.
    Thanks for any advice or insight you can offer!

    You're welcome.  And you are correct, an iCloud account is an Apple ID; but you can still migrate your devices to their own account even if they are currently sharing a single account.
    One person's device(s) can keep the current account.  Decide who will be migrating to a new account.  On their devices, go to Settings>iCloud, scroll to the bottom and tap Delete Account.  (This will only delete the account from the device, not from iCloud.  The device[s] 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 My [iDevice].  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.
    When you're done, if you have any data in the accounts that you don't want you will then have to go to icloud.com on your computer and sign into each iCloud account separately and manually delete it from each account.
    * Each Apple ID will need a separate non-Apple email address.  If you don't have these you can get free email accounts from gmail.  Apple will send a verification email to the account you provide.  You will have to click on the Verify Now link to verify the account and ID, after which you can use it to set up the iCloud account.
    Finally, if you are sharing the same ID for iMessage, on these other devices go to Settings>Messages>Send & Receive, tap the ID, sign out, then sign back in with their new ID (so each persons device[s] are using a separate ID).  For FaceTime, do the same thing in Settings>FaceTime.

  • I have multiple devices within my family but each device receives texts, game requests and notifications meant for me. How do I stop this?

    I have multiple devices among several different family members. I have one iCloud account, I guess that seems to send messages, notifications, game requests meant to me but each device receives it. How can I fix this?

  • HT2589 I have an Apple ID which I had registered years back. I wanted to use the same Apple ID to download apps - but whenever I try to login with that Apple ID, it tells me "  "This ID hasn't been used with Itunes", and proceeds to let me "Review" it.

    I have an Apple ID which I had registered years back.I wanted to use the same Apple ID to download apps on my ipod touch - but whenever I try to login with that Apple ID, it tells me "This ID hasn't been used with Itunes", and proceeds to let me "Review" it. In the last step, I'm asked to furnish credit card information, which I don't want to, since all I want to do is to be able to download free apps !!

    Could the credit card be expired?
    Beyond that, what you need to do is contact iTunes support, they can tell you exactly what is wrong, none of us here can do that.
    In the lower right corner of this page is a 'contact us' link. Click on that and you'll see a page full of info and links, one of which is iTunes support.

  • TS2755 Problem:  Both iPhones share incoming and outgoing Text Messages.  History:  We used the same Apple ID for TWO iPhones.  Later we changed the Apple ID on ONE iPhone.

    Two iPhones were set up using the same Apple ID.  iPhone#2 was updated 4 months ago with a new Apple ID.  Both phones continue to recieve text messages for either user.  Texts from user 1 or 2 to a 3rd party are signed as the same user.  iPhone#1 is an Apple 5, iPhone#2 is a 4s.  All phones on the same Verizon account.  IOS have been updated regularly.

    Go to your imessaging settings and check to see that the phone number for device #2 is changed good luck.

    Perhaps you mean the OP needs to add a new email address for his AppleID and use that email address.
    Yes. That's what I meant.
    Change the "You can de Reached by Facetime At" for one of them under Settings->Facetime->You can be Reached by Facetimer At.
    I probably should have specified "Change the "You can de Reached by Facetime At"(email address) ...
    NOW TO CORRECT:  Even though I said you could, you can't.
    I tried this out just now and you can't facetime a device using the same Apple ID.
    So yes, you infact need another Apple ID for this. Not just another email address.
    My Bad. sorry.  I don't deserve the 10 points.

  • We have multiple devices among 4 family members (1 computer, 1 laptop, 4'ipods, 4 iPads , 2 apple tvs.  We currently have 1 apple I'.d.  How do I set up my daughters laptop so that she has access to all apps and music, but I don't want her contacts, photo

    Is there any way of creating separate I.d.'s under 1 apple I.d.?  My kids are too young to have there own apple I.d. And then they wouldn't be able to access all the music and apps we have purchased .....or would they.  I'm am finding this confusing with the numerous devices we have in the family.  When they sync I don't want all of their friends contact info nor do I want them to have mine. I also don't want their goofy photos.  I am the only one with the password for the iTunes account. I had to take them off of iCloud for this reason.  I am not tech savvy but I can figure things out when pointed in the right direction.  Please help!  Thanks and merry Christmas!

    Welcome to the Apple Community.
    You can use different ID's for iTunes and iCloud.
    Just delete the account in settings > iCloud and create them their own account.
    if the children are minors, you wiil need to create and be responsible for each account yourself.

  • HT204053 I have two Apple IDs and want to merge them so I use the same Apple ID for iCloud/IO6 and iTunes

    I have 2 Apple IDs and I want to merge them so I only use one. Can I change my Apple ID for iTunes to my iCloud/email ID? 

    You can't merge them but you can change the ID you use for iTunes store and app purchases.  To do this, go to Settings>iTunes & App Stores, tap the ID at the top, sign out, then sign back in using the other ID.
