HT204053 I am looking at purchasing an iphone and we have a ipad and ipod at home all under the same apple id. I would like my daughter to have a seperate id then myself for signing in for itunes, etc...what do I need to do to make this happen.

I am looking at purchasing an iphone and have an my daughter has an ipad at home and I want to have seperate apple ids when we use them and download and such.. What do I need to do?

If you want her to have a new iTunes account then there are instructions on this page for how to create one : http://support.apple.com/kb/HT2731
Or if you don't want to give credit card details then follow the instructions on this page when creating the account : http://support.apple.com/kb/HT2534
You can then use that account on the phone (Settings > iTunes & App Store for the stores, Settings > iCloud etc)
All of your downloads from your existing account will remain tied to that account. If you want to use the same computer for syncing then you can do do, you can have more than one account authorised on a computer's iTunes (Store > Authorise This Computer menu option), but only one account can be logged in for purchasing/downloading. But if you use iTunes Match, automatic downloads or redownload an account's past purchases then you may tie that computer to that account for 90 days : http://support.apple.com/kb/HT4627 - so you won't be able to do any of those three things on a different account until the 90 days have completed (it shouldn't affect being able to make new purchases)

  • Our household has two IPhones, two IPod Touches, 1 IPad and 1 computer. we want to have it all under the same Apple ID for the purpose of Home Sharing, but my two kids iPODs cannot use their facetime or messaging becuase it shows they are on my iphone.

    HELP! We have several Apple devices in our household (2 iPHOnes, 2 IPOD touch, 1 iPAD), and cannot get them to work correctly becuase my two children have to be under my creditcard and apple account. When I do this they cannot send me messages or facetime me, and when then try to do so with their friends it says my name and IPhone. Also, my husband and I want two seperate credit cards for iTUNEs but want to take advantage of the home share, but the one computer we have will not let us share. and had to have 2 apple ids created. WHy is this so confusing? Cant I reset everything under my Apple ID, and allow everyone to have their own email accounts and identity?

  • How do you keep your iPhones and iPads separate under the same apple id

    I have a family of iPhones and iPads and one apple ID, well needless to say each device is getting face time calls and text messages from eachother. I might add it makes for some pretty interesting conversations. I would like to learn how to keep each device seperate under the same apple ID, or would it be better to set up seperate ID's for everything? Anyways, any help would be appreciated. Thank you!

  • HT3529 My iPhone and my childrens iPods are both linked to the same Apple ID. unfortunately, iMessages sent to me are now appearing on my childrens screens. Some of which are inappropriate. Please advise how I can rectify this???

    How can I stop the iMessages I recieve to my iPhone showing up on my childrens iPods?
    We all use the same Apple ID and they use iMessage.
    Thanks for your help in advance

    best thing would be to turn imessage off on their device
    also you can go into settings, imessage on theire device, go into send and receive and uncheck your phone number  (on their ipods)  that way if a message is adressed to your phone number, they will not get it

  • HT204053 Is it possible to have two (or more) different icloud mail accounts (not alias) under the same apple id? If not what is you best advice for all family members to have their own e-mail and still share the purchases under the same apple id. Thanks

    So I basically won't run into any trouble? I
    There should be no issues. Its designed to work like that.  You don't change Apple IDs just because you get a new device.

    Is there any chance that the phones can fall out of sync?
    Unlikely. But nothing is impossible.   Though I don;t see how that would happen. As long as both are signed into the Same Apple ID / iCloud Account they will be N'Sync. (Bad Joke)

    If I get a message or buy an app or take a photo on the iPhone 5, how do I get those things onto the iPhone 6?
    If you buy an App, you have 2 ways to get it to the iPhone6: If Automatic Downloads is enabled in Settings->iTunes & App Store, it will automatically download to the iPhone 6 when you buy it on the 5 and vice versa if you buy it on the 6, it will download to the 5.
    Alternatively, you can simply go to the App Store App->Updates->Purchased and look for the App there and download it. Purchased Apps will not require payment again. i.e They'll be free to download to the iPhone 6 once purchased.
    SMS Messages will sync over using Continuity as long as they are on the same Wifi network. Otherwise, restoring the iPhone 5 backup to the iPhone 6 will transfer all messages received up until the backup was made onto the iPhone 6.
    Images, can be transferred either through Photo Stream
    My Photo Stream FAQ - Apple Support
    Or any Cloud service you want such as Dropbox, or One Drive.

    Also, something i forgot to ask initially: Should I update the iPhone 5 to iOS 8 first or does that not matter?
    If you want the Continuity features as explained above you need to update the iPhone 5 to iOS 8. Otherwise its not all that important.

    I'm using same apple id for my ipad & ipod but after start using the same apple id on my ipad, i can't update my free software downloaded on both, it's showing "YOU CAN NOT UPDATE THIS SOFTWARE SINCE YOU HAVE NOT OWNED THE MAJOR VERSION OF THIS SOFTWARE" so how i can update my softwares on ipad & ipod using the same apple id

    I think the issue is that iTunes (for whatever reason) thinks I have two Apple ID's.
    also, to further complicate the issue, when i try updating the apps from my iPod the iTunes store is still recognizing my old hotmail Apple ID. So when I go to enter my password it won't accept because it doesn't match with the old Apple ID, even though it is the same account (just new Apple ID name).
    I have tried signing out within the App Store and re-signing in with my Apple ID but it still brings up my old Apple ID name when I try to update.

  • Find my Friends : Support for multiple users under the same Apple ID?

    Can multiple users under the same Apple ID use the app to find each other?  My daughter uses my Apple ID with her iPod touch which allows me to monitor her purchases but it seems that only one device under an ID can use the app at a time.  If that is the case then it is a major disadvantage and I will need to go back to using latitude (or Find My iPhone which also allows me to see where all of my devices are at the same time)

  • How do you make separate ICloud accounts for people who all use the same Apple ID?

    Me, my brother and mam all use the same Apple ID (i.e. this one. I'm not Debra) so is it possible to create three different ICloud accounts? I only want my music, pictures etc to go to my IPad, IPhone and my account on the Mac. If it's not possible, is there a way to see all the activity from this Apple ID in one place and split it into three different ID's easily? Thank's for any replies

    Welcome to the Apple Community.
    You can't have 3 accounts with one ID.
    If the reason you want to keep a single ID is so you can share music and apps etc, then you should be aware that the iTunes account and iCloud accounts are different accounts, you can all share an iTunes account but have different iCloud accounts (each iCloud account would have its own ID).

  • If I have more than one I phone can I use the same apple ID for all off them?

    If I have more than one I phone can I use the same apple ID for all off them?

    Yes. You can have multiple iPhones on the same ID, up to the maximum 5 total devices. FaceTime will use the sim number for calls and you can configure each phone separately, or configure one and then back it up to iTunes and them restore the image to the others.

  • I bought a Mountain Lion upgrade for $20 off the Apple site. I have four other Macs all under the same ID. How can I share the new OS with other computers. Or can I?

    I bought a Mountain Lion upgrade for $20 off the Apple site. I have four other Macs all under the same ID. How can I share the new OS with other computers. Or can I?

    You can share it with other Macs under your control (not your neighbor's).  You just need to be logged in under the buying AppleID for updates or to download again.

  • My wife and I decided to both buy Iphones do I put them both under the same apple ID, or do I create two different apple ID's and two differnt icloud accounts?

    My wife and I decided to both buy Iphones do I put them both under the same apple ID, or do I create two different apple ID's and two differnt icloud accounts? We want to be able to share my itunes library on both our phones and sync our calendars, but I don't want every update and reminder that my wife puts in her phone and I know she doesn't want every reminder I put in my phone.

    What you need to do is both use the same Apple ID for iTunes content, but separate Apple ID's for everything else. So, you keep your existing Apple ID. If not a verifiable email address, you will need to create a new Apple ID for yourself. You also create an Apple ID for your wife, again a verifiable email address. You use the existing Apple ID for all iTunes content. The new Apple ID's for iCloud, iMessage, FaceTime, etc. Here's how to create an Apple ID:
