How does find my iphone work with one apple id or two? also I am going to be going off to college soon should I make an itunes id for my self and how will I get all the music from the old id?

Is it possible to have your whole family on one apple id or is it better to have each person have there own?
Yes, it is possible. 1 apple ID can be associated with up to 10 devices.
If each has their own does each id have to buy their own music and apps?
Yes, all purchases are non-transferable.
How does find my iphone work with one apple id or two?
Every device associated with one apple ID through Find my iPhone is tied to that Apple ID; Find my iPhone will work in the same way with up to ten devices associated with one apple ID. You cannot enable Find my iPhone for one device across two apple IDs
I am going to be going off to college soon should I make an itunes id for my self and how will I get all the music from the old id?
If you have authorized a computer with the old apple ID, you can transfer old media purchased through the old to other devices via iTunes. This doesn't mean the media purchases through the old apple ID it transferred to the new account. If you plan to make future purchases and don't wish to share them with others, make your own apple ID.

  • HT1386 The laptop I originally synch'd my iphone 4s with is broken and cannot retrieve any files. How can I sync the phone with a new laptop without losing all my downloaded music and apps already installed on my iphone?

    If the answer to the above question is "yes", FIRST, set up a backup of your new computer before you do anything else so the next time your computer breaks you will not be in the same situation. Backup solutions are numerous and inexpensive, and there is absolutely no excuse in the Third Millennium not to have one.
    Then see this tip: https://discussions.apple.com/docs/DOC-3141

    You need to copy everything from your backup copy of your computer.

    I had a repair done on my MacBook Pro and had to have a new hard drive installed. The Apple Auth Repair Shop then updated the OS from 10.6.8 to 10.7.5. Now my iPhoto v 9.2.3 will not open and it sounds like it will not work with this OS. Can you please advise?

    You may need many other updates to retain compatibility with Lion. I suggest you reinstall Snow Leopard. Unfortunately, you will need to erase the drive first. Be sure to backup your data if you haven't done so already.
    Clean Install of Snow Leopard
    Be sure to make a backup first because the following procedure will erase
    the drive and everything on it.
         1. Boot the computer using the Snow Leopard Installer Disc or the Disc 1 that came
             with your computer.  Insert the disc into the optical drive and restart the computer.
             After the chime press and hold down the  "C" key.  Release the key when you see
             a small spinning gear appear below the dark gray Apple logo.
         2. After the installer loads select your language and click on the Continue
             button. When the menu bar appears select Disk Utility from the Utilities menu.
             After DU loads select the hard drive entry from the left side list (mfgr.'s ID and drive
             size.)  Click on the Partition tab in the DU main window.  Set the number of
             partitions to one (1) from the Partitions drop down menu, click on Options button
             and select GUID, click on OK, then set the format type to MacOS Extended
             (Journaled, if supported), then click on the Apply button.
         3. When the formatting has completed quit DU and return to the installer.  Proceed
             with the OS X installation and follow the directions included with the installer.
         4. When the installation has completed your computer will Restart into the Setup
             Assistant. After you finish Setup Assistant will complete the installation after which
             you will be running a fresh install of OS X.  You can now begin the update process
             by opening Software Update and installing all recommended updates to bring your
             installation current.
    Download and install Mac OS X 10.6.8 Update Combo v1.1.

  • How will find my Iphone work on an Iphone that has no service

    How will find my Iphone work on an Iphone that has no service and it locked so if someone found it they would not be able to connect it to a wifi source.

    http://support.apple.com/kb/HT5818
    Great link giving you peace of mind that at least they will not be able to use it with out your AppleID and Password.
    According to the "Lost Mode" anytime the device is turned back on or able to receive a signal the phone will lock itself down and it's position will be updated to show its last known location.

  • Lost my iPhone and why doesn't find my iPhone work

    Lost my iPhone and why doesn't find my iPhone work

    A friendly reminder: In order to use Find My IPhone Successfully, you need to 1. Turn on Location Services, 2. Lock Location Services (Using Restrictions in Settings, General, Restrictions) so that if some one else finds your IPhone, they can NOT turn off Find My IPhone And/Or Location Services itself! 3. Add your Mobile Me and/Or ICloud Account to your IPhone. 4. Lock Accounts (Again in Restrictions) from being changed or Deleted so that your Mobile Me And/OR ICloud Account can NOT be Deleted! 5. Look Up the Location of your IPhone Before Suspending Service to the IPhone, NOT after Suspending Service (simple common since applies here as well).

  • How do i transfer the music and apps from ipod touch to iphone

    how do i transfer the music and apps from ipod touch to iphone

    If you sign in to your Apple ID then your apps will be visible by clicking the "purchased" tab at the bottom of the screen.
    Music you've purchased from Apple will appear automatically if you sign in to your account. Other music you'll need to download from your PC assuming you're not subscribed to iTunes Match.

  • I lost my ipod touch 5 and i didnt run find my iphone on it can apple do anything

    i lost my red ipod touch5 and i didnt run find my iphone on it and i cannot find it and i have a two year warranty on it so will m warranty cover it bieng lost or stolen

    The Apple warranty does not cover loss or theft
    - If you previously turned on FIndMyiPod on the iPod in Settings>iCloud and wifi is on and connected go to iCloud: Find My iPhone, sign in and go to FIndMyiPhone. If the iPod has been restored it will never show up.
    - You can also wipe/erase the iPod and have the iPod play a sound via iCloud.
    - If not shown, then you will have to use the old fashioned way, like if you lost a wallet or purse.
    - Change the passwords for all accounts used on the iPod and report to police
    - There is no way to prevent someone from restoring the iPod (it erases it) using it unless you had iOS 7 on the device. With iOS 7, one has to enter the Apple ID and password to restore the device.
    - Apple will do nothing without a court order

  • How to make my iphone work with itunes on new macbook air?

    I previously used a PC which I used to put music on my iphone from itunes however I now have a macbook air and I don't know how to change my iphone so that it now recognises my new computer as the right one. I can use my macbook to sync my phone however if I try to drag music or videos onto it it won't work.
    Thanks

    An iPhone 5 requires iTunes 10.7 (minimum) which in turn requires OSX 10.6.8 (minimum) which in turn requires an Intel Mac (which you have).
    1) Make sure your computer meets Snow Leopard technical specifications - http://support.apple.com/kb/SP575  This mostly means making sure it is an Intel Mac and has at least 1GB RAM (at least 2 GB is recommended).  Go to the Apple in the upper left corner of any window to "About This Mac".  To check RAM continue to "More Info...".  It should say you have at least 1GB of "memory".
    2) Buy a Snow Leopard disc from Apple online
    http://store.apple.com/us/product/MC573/mac-os-x-106-snow-leopard - USA
    http://store.apple.com/uk/product/MC573/mac-os-x-106-snow-leopard - UK
    or telephone Apple. In the USA: (800) 676-2775 (contact information for other countries: http://support.apple.com/kb/HE57)
    Alternatively you can buy from online retailers but anticipate paying much more than the original price which is the price still charged by Apple
    3) Backing up your computer before upgrading is always a good idea.
    4) After installing from the DVD, update your Snow Leopard installation using Software Update or manually downloading and installing the Mac OS X 10.6.8 Update Combo v.1.1 - http://support.apple.com/kb/DL1399

  • My computer and ipod crashed deleting all of my itunes music and apps how do i restore my full itunes account?

    My computer was struck by lightning completly erasing all of hard drive and memory. Along with that my ipod touch 4th generation crashed and just got it rebooted but don't have any of my music, movies, or apps on it. So i redownloaded itunes and signed into my account but all of my music is gone along with my apps. How do I get back my music onto my itunes on my computer?

    It has always been very basic to always maintain a backup copy of your computer for just such an occasion.  Use your backup copy to put everything back.
    If for some reason you have failed to do this, not good, then you can redownload some itunes purchases in some countries:
    Downloading past purchases from the App Store, iBookstore, and iTunes Store

  • I updated IPOD and it deleted all of my music and apps, how do I get them back?

    I updated my IPod and and backed up the information to my computer, however,  after the update it set the IPod to original settings and I cannot find my apps nor my music.  HELP>

    Apps and music are NOT part of the backup that itunes performs.
    If for some reason you have failed to transfer all purchases from the ipod to your computer before updating , then you can redownload some content in some countries.

    I purchased an apple gift card, but i am not having any success adding the money to my itunes account or apple account so i can purchase music or apps, how can i do this

    If you bought an Apple gift card, then you cannot use it in the iTunes store.  You can only use it in the Apple store for hardware.
    You would need an iTunes gift card to buy anything in iTunes

  • HT201269 Hi. I have shared an Apple ID with my children for some time.  As they are getting older they do not wnat me seeing all their messages, photos etc so want their own accounts.  How can they access their purchased music and apps on the new account

    Hi. I have shared an Apple ID with my children for some time.  As they are getting older they do not wnat me seeing all their messages, photos etc so want their own accounts.  How can they access their purchased music and apps on the new account please?

    Yes.
    On their iOS devices, under Settings>iTunes & App Store, they should use your Apple ID. When they log into iCloud, iMessage and Facetime, they should use their personal Apple IDs.
