I'm a school tech coordinator. Many computers and many iPads. How many Apple IDs can I have per device, and how many devices can have the same Apple ID? To make my life easier, I'd like 200 devices to all use the same Apple ID.

I'm a school tech coordinator. I have many computers and many iPads. I apologize if there is a some place that has all the rules governing the use of Apple IDs. I looked, and I even tried to get the answers from multiple Apple rep's. I couldn't find the answers.
How many Apple IDs can I have per device?
I want to use the same computer to sync and backup many iOS devices. The iOS devices would be associated with different Apple IDs.
I may load apps under a school Apple ID and have users load their own apps under thier own ID.
How many devices can have the same Apple ID?
Can I use the same Apple ID on all the computers in a lab?
Can I use the same Apple ID on all iPads for a particular grade level?
Are the rules different for iOS devices and computers?
I know that there are limits on "authorize" and "de-authorize" and how frequently those things can be done.
Recently I heard that for the life of an iOS device, it can only be associated with five Apple IDs. That is not good for a school giving iPads to students in a 1:1
To make my life easier, I'd like 200 devices to all use the same Apple ID.

It would be best to address your questions there, especially since this is a public forum, and over there you could post more private issues with this set-up. Not to mention, getting more official answers.

    Welcome to the Apple Community.
    You can authorise up to 5 computers for one ID.

  • I read an article in the paper today re the virus that locks off I-phone and I-pads, I have an iMac and an iPad 4. Is there a danger of this happening and if so how do I prevent it? Many thanks, Roger Biggin.

    I read an article in the paper today re the virus that locks off I-phone and I-pads, I have an iMac and an iPad 4. Is there a danger of this happening and if so how do I prevent it?
    Many thanks, Roger Biggin.

    You may be referring to the "Oleg Pliss" hack (not a virus), in which some people (mostly in Australia and New Zealand) have had their Apple IDs hacked and used to remotely lock their iOS devices. If that's what you read about, be sure that you are using a strong password on your Apple ID, and consider enabling two-factor authentication on your Apple ID to make it difficult or impossible for a hacker to take it away from you.
    If you live in Australia or New Zealand, it may be worthwhile to turn off Find My iPad on your iPad, at least until the cause of the problem has been determined. Of course, that reduces the protections against theft. You'd be better off to just make sure you're keeping the iPad backed up, so you can restore it if it happens to get locked.
    If this isn't the story you read about, we'll need more details about what the story said.

    I don't think I see my situation addressed. I have one mobile me account and a separate appleID for purchases.   I have 4 devices and my wife has two. Right now they are all using the same mobile me account to sync just the calendar and address book.
    1.)  I want to add email syncing for my 4 devices and email syncing for my wife's two devices separately, but we want to sync and share the same calendar and address book.  Is this possible?
    2.)  I also have 5 different calendars, one for work, one for home, one for... etc.  Is there a way to have different devices only sync certain calendars and not others or is it an all or nothing deal?
    Thanks in advance for any tips!

    To begin with, I would like to try to explain Apple's confusing nomenclature in regard to iCloud.
    Apple have called the whole cloud thing iCloud, there are a number of features under the iCloud umbrella, some of which require their own login. iTunes is one of these, another is what Apple have unfortunately also called iCloud.
    You can use the same Apple ID (account) to login to both iCloud and iTunes, but you don't need to and often users will login to each service using a different ID.
    The part that you need to remember is that the services available when you log into iCloud are completely different and unrelated to those when you log in to iTunes. Your iCloud login enables mail, contacts, calendars, find my phone, Back to My Mac, Documents & Data sharing and photosstream, it does not affect any of your iTunes services.
    To avoid confusion when discussing your problem, when I mention iCloud, I am referring to the services under the iCloud login, Whereas I will refer to the whole cloud thing as The Cloud.
    Generally speaking it is not a good idea to share an iCloud account between different people, it often results in contracts, calendars et cetera being deleted by others. Saying that however you can add secondary iCloud accounts to your devices at settings> mail, contacts, calendars. Secondary accounts do not have all the features of a primary account, but are often very useful. Because you can enable or disable each individual feature of an iCloud account, you can cover almost any situation by using secondary accounts.

    I would like to learn more about using the Adobe Digital Publishing Suite. I really don't know much about it nor do I know anyone who uses it yet. Is it specifically for creating apps for tablets? What about smart phones? We sometimes produce PDF publications that are posted to our website. Can DPS be used to produce more interactive online publications? What is a .folio application? What platforms are .folio apps used on?

    This isn't an issue. Notice the screen prior to the one that shows usage has an iCloud section and a Manage Storage button. For this button to activate ios needs to download a few kb from icloud. Switching back to this screen forces ios to download those few kb.

    You could try to use a motion sensor - in a do-it-yourself store you can buy motion sensors that turn on the lights when a burglar approaches the property. Connect this sensor to the remote control of your camera instead of to a light.
    Probably you can buy ready-made motion sensitive remote controls, the photographers here will know. You would need this kind of remote control for wildlife photography.

  • I would like to extend the screen from my circa 2013 27in iMAC with thunderbolt onto my circa late 2006 imac using the DVI port on that iMAC. Is this possible? If not is there another approach I can use?

    I would like to extend the screen from my circa 2013 27in iMAC with thunderbolt onto my circa late 2006 imac using the DVI port on that iMAC. Is this possible? If not is there another approach I can use? My 2006 iMAC is showing it's age but I figure I can use it as just a monitor just fine. Assuming I can connect the two together.

    That older iMac isn't designed to receive video input through the mini-DVI connection. Only certain newer iMacs are able to be used as displays.
    Your only options are to use something like ScreenRecycler mentioned above.

    Does the magic mouse not have the feature of viewing all open pages on the desktop like you do when you use the side buttons of the wired mouse?

    No, you'll have to use Mission control for that.  It's either located on the dock, the F3 key on recent laptops on a swipe on the trackpad.

  • I have two apple ids somehow, probably from two mobile and two computers - how do I merge them into one account so they all work with iCloud?

    Somewhere, somehow, between two mobile and two macs, I ended up with two apple ids. I figured that this was the root of my problem to syncing. So, I am syncing Mail, Contacts, etc through the one account that I bought storage on this year in iCloud. I want to merge the two accounts, since many of my apps were purchased with my other id. Apparently, Keynote will not merge files since the app was bought with the second id, not the id I am using for icloud.
    What to do??? I read, in the forums, that I am definitely not alone. I always had the id I used for the Apple Store to buy iTunes items, and then apps. The other id, that I am using for iCloud was based on my iDisk id, and apparently I set up as a separate account. The much failed iDisk account appears to be the one that I wish I never got involved with. Should I feel the same way about iCloud. If I cannot merge the two APPLE accounts from the same person (ME!!!), then many dropbox really is the answer for my file sharing needs.
    Please help me decide.

    To begin with, I would like to try to explain Apple's confusing nomenclature in regard to iCloud.

    To avoid confusion when discussing your problem, when I mention iCloud, I am referring to the services under the iCloud login, Whereas I will refer to the whole cloud thing as The Cloud.
    To go back to your question; you cannot merge accounts, but perhaps using one account for iCloud and the other for iTunes will resolve the majority of the reasons you needed to merge to begin with.

  • How do I separate 3 different devices all using the same apple ID

    HELP PLEASE!! My wife has a macbook which is about 5 years old. We used our only email address at that time as our apple ID. Since then we have bought her an iphone 4 and registered it with the same apple ID. Then a few months later I made the jump from my blackberry to an iphone 4 and used the same apple id. All these devices are now tethered to the same apple id as well as our family itunes account. So, we have a family itunes account, an older macbook and 2 iphone 4's all with the same apple id. With me so far? Now, everything was cool until the iOS update came out for our 2 iphones and came with the new icloud app. When my wife and I set up our icloud accounts everything that was on her phone showed up on mine and everything that was on mine showed up on hers. How do I change the apple id's on her phone and computer, keep the apple id we already have on my phone and continue to share the itunes account? An important note here is that the apple id's are my email address. HELP!!!!

    OK this might help you
    you need both iphones and the mac next open itunes and click on itunes prefrences now you will need to go to devices and erase all iphone back ups
    next plug the phone with your info to the mac and rename that iphone with your name and back it up, After the back up safely remove it
    next plug the phone with your wifes info into the mac and follow the same steps.
    after the back up is done restore your wifes iphone and when ask to restore as a new iphone you need to scroll down to her name and click on it then do the same with your phone
    this will put all info into the corresponding phones

  • Please can someone tell me how to set up FaceTime between 3 devices all using the same apple ID ( 2 iPads and a iPhone)????, Please can someone tell me how to set up FaceTime between 3 devices all using the same apple ID ( 2 iPads and a iPhone)????

    I am trying to set up FaceTime on all my apple devices so I can FaceTime each device but all 3 devices are using the same apple Id and I have no idea how to sort this???

    Facetime only works with two devices at a time. You can have the same Apple ID, but the two devices can't have the same email address. Get a new gmail account. Normally you use wifi for connection, however, with iOS 6 and an iPad 3 you can use cellular.

  • I seem to have 2 Apple IDs, one on my MacBook Pro and another on my devices.  If I switch from MobileMe to iCloud on my Mac (under the apple logo) will my devices work and sync in iCloud.  I have no idea how I go 2 IDs

    Can I get rid of one  ID?  How do I do that?

    one on my MacBook Pro
    That's not an Apple ID. That is your admin account which you can view in System Preferencs > Accounts or Users & Groups.
    If I switch from MobileMe to iCloud on my Mac (under the apple logo) will my devices work and sync in iCloud.  I have no idea how I go 2 IDs
    Just use your current Apple ID when you setup your iCloud account that you use for your devices.
