Can I create a new apple account for a product that is already associated with an existing account?

I have had an apple id account for a few years that is shared by myself and my family. It includes 3 ipod touches, 1 ipod nano, and 1 ipad. All of the devices are synced to each other and settings keep getting changed around between them, which is becoming an annoyance. I would like to create 2 separate apple id accounts, and keep my existing one, is this possible? Will I and my family be able to sync the devices to new accounts without having to reset each product? any advice and/or suggestions would be much appreciated, thanks.

Couldn't agree more... the folks who are getting penalized for this are the early adopters of .Mac/iCloud dating from the days when the only way to implement a "family" account was to use aliases. Now all my kids' / my wife's name aliases sit in my account, unable to move. I guess the good news is that if I delete them nobody else will get them, but this seems a pretty poor consolation.
Would it really be so difficult to implement a "move this alias to another iCloud account" option that requires the "sender" and "receiver" to exchange some sort of code to implement the transation in order to prevent fraud?

    How do I "log out" or "sign out" of iCloud on my iPhone? There is an option to delete the account, but I just want to log off. I want to keep the account name for future use.

    It looks like the article below has the information you are looking for.

    Turn off iCloud completely
    Depending on whether you want to stop using iCloud on all or only some devices, do one or more of the following:
    On your iOS device’s Home screen, go to Settings > iCloud, then at the bottom of the screen, tap Delete Account.
    Note:   If you delete your iCloud account, iCloud will no longer back up your iOS data. You can still back up your device in iTunes (for more information, open iTunes and choose iTunes > Help). 
    On your Mac, open iCloud preferences, then click Sign Out.
    If your Mac has OS X v10.7.5 and you turn off iCloud, your calendar information and reminders aren’t stored locally in iCal. If you want to retain your calendar and reminder information, you need to back it up before turning off iCloud. For more information, see the Apple Support article iCloud: Calendar & reminder data removed from Calendar and Reminders or iCal when disabling iCloud Calendar.
    On your Windows computer, open the iCloud Control Panel, then click Sign Out.
    Note:   If you turned on automatic download of music, app, or book purchases (in iTunes preferences or in Settings on your iOS device), your iTunes purchases are still downloaded to your devices.
    Set up iCloud on your devices

  • I created a new apple id for my iphone and ipad which work great and allow me to access Icloud. on my macbook air can't get it to use my new apple id for icloud. Help?

    I created a new apple id for my iphone and ipad which work great and allow me to access Icloud. on my macbook air  I can't get it to use my new apple id for icloud. It keeps going back to my old apple id and doesn't afford me to alter it. I use system preferences-icloud and it just wants to verify the old apple id but doesn't afford me the opportunity to delete teh account or edit it like the iphone5 and ipad. Help?

    Welcome to the Apple Community.
    You need to use the sign out option on the left side.

  • My wife and my iphones are both on the same apple id.  If I create a new apple id for her, can we still share our music?

    My wife and my iphones are both on the same apple id.  If I create a new apple id for her, can we still share our music?

    Yes.  If you are using two different instances of iTunes on your computers, make sure the music is on both copies of iTunes.
    The person with the new Apple ID will not "own" the music, as it is owned by the one with the former ID.  But the way to deal with this is for the new ID person to do Store > Authorize This Computer from iTunes' menu, then have the person with the ID that purchased the music enter his/her Apple ID and password.

  • Should I create a new Apple ID for new device?

    Hi, I just got a iPod Touch and I also own a iPhone. Should I create a new Apple ID for the iPod Touch or share with the existing one for the iPhone?

    As content is tied to the account that originally bought/downloaded it, you are better off using the same account for all your devices - you can put content from the one account on multiple devices. You don't really gain anything by having multiple accounts, if anything it makes things worse e.g. having to remember two account ids and passwords.

  • Creating a new apple id for my wife

    I currently have one Apple ID and run iTunes on a Windows 7 PC. This is synced to 2 iPhones, 2 iPads and 2 iPods as well as 2 Apple TV's. All the Apps purchased, updated and shared between all the devices are controlled using iTunes depending on whose iphone etc is connected.
    This has worked quite successfully till now but if we use imessage on the phones it gets very confusing and for that reason I would like to set up a new Apple ID for my wifes iPhone and iPad. What I don't understand is the implications of this with regard to all the previously purchased Apps. Will she loose access to these when I sign in on iTunes to her new Apple ID. Are there any other issues I should be aware off before going down this route. Will all my music and films still be available for her to load on her iPhone and iPad ? Any advice and help much appreciated.

    Hello Primer Driver,
    Thanks for the question, and what a great question it is.
    You are absolutely right, there are some tweaks we will want to make to continue the configuration you have right now. My recommendation? Create a new Apple ID for your Wife, but only use this Apple ID for iMessage/FaceTime.
    There are four different accounts you can be signed into on an iOS device: iCloud, iMessage, FaceTime, and iTunes and App Stores. Theoretically, you could be signed into four separate accounts for each of these. For your situation, your Wife would only sign into iMessage and FaceTime with her account, and continue to use the family account for iTunes and App Stores.

  • How can I create a new ring tone for my iPhone 4?

    How can I create a new ring tone for my iPhone 4? I followed the Garage Band process and ended up with the ring tone I want as a AAC audio file. It got stored in my iTunes a a song rather than a ring tone. How do I make it a ring tone vs. a song? I tried dragging it t the Ring Tone category at the bottom of the ITunes list, but it won't alloow me to move it?

    There's also an easy to use Applescript over at Doug's Applescripts for iTunes. It automates the whole thing. All you do is set the start and stop time on a file in iTuens and run the script. It will do everything else.

    You should have your stuff separate from your mom's. Delete all the apps downloaded or purchased with your mom's Apple ID and download or purchase them with your own Apple ID. Back up files and data first if possible.

  • How do I get a new icloud account for my phone when it was setup with my wifes account?

    How do I get a new icloud account for my phone when it was setup with my wifes account?

    Go to Settings>iCloud and sign out. Any synced data, such as calendars and contacts, will be removed.
    To get a new ID: go to http://appleid.apple.com and create a new ID - you will need a different non-Apple email address from any ID you already have.
    Then go back to Settings>iCloud and sign in there, enabling any data types you want to sync in the list there. You will be asked to create a new @icloud.com address when enabling Mail.

  • How can I create a new folder in an external disk that is connected via USB to my Mac?

    How can I create a new folder in an external disk that is connected via USB to my Mac?

    Just like you would create a new folder anywhere. Open the drive's icon from your desktop or the Finder, and click shift-command-N. (Or use the Finder menu if you prefer - File - New Folder).
    If you can't create a folder, your drive may be the wrong format (you can't write to a Windows/NTFS formatted drive, for example). You'll have to back up any files you have on there, and then use Disk Utility to reformat it to Mac Extended (if it will only be used on a Mac) or MS-DOS format (if you want to share it with a PC).

  • I am trying to change the email address associated with my existing account to free up my university email address for use in obtaining Creative Cloud.

    I am trying to change the email address associated with my existing account to free up my university email address for use in obtaining Creative Cloud.  Every time I go to the account settings of my existing account (which currently uses my university email, as I set it up years ago and had no idea it'd eventually cause problems), I enter a different email to use for that account but I continuously receive an error message saying "account changes cannot be saved."  It makes me think that it's because the email isn't verified (funny, it actually is verified since it has been the alternate email on the old account for years), but when I click the "send verification email" nothing happens (that is, no email is sent to that other email address).
    Anyway, my university is now requiring that faculty create new accounts using our university email addresses in order to register/use Creative Cloud.  Am I able to delete my old account, or can anyone help me actually change the email address associated with my old account without getting a "changes can't be saved" error?
