Family sharing and iCloud iOS 10?


I'm after some tips on iCloud and sharing of the family. (devices have been upgraded to iOS 10)

I used to have several devices (2 iPhones and iPads 2) 1 Apple ID.

Because of mixed text, etc. messages and cross the composition, I enabled sharing of family.

The original Apple ID (now used to connect iCloud as well) is on my iPhone and has the credit card for App store purchases related.

My wife has her own Apple ID / iCloud login & "procurement families" are related to the "original" ID

2 questions:

1. I want to be able to share contacts through synchronization iCloud (currently syncs OTA to Outlook on a Windows PC) - I know that this could not be done directly under iOS8/9, but I was wondering if this can now be done under iOS10?
(I know there was a way to have the 2nd iCloud account on each of the devices for synchronization of contacts, but want to avoid if possible workarounds).

Maybe there is a way to have the "original" as the master Apple ID / organizer represent (Sync contact, purchases, etc.) and introduced myself as a member of the family, as I did for my wife? (ie. so we have 3 apple ID for 2 devices) - is it possible?

2. Similarly, was it an easy Save photos of each device to this single account iCloud "original"?  (he has 50 GB storage, barely used so much space to save the photos on the other phone).

Thank you

1 iCloud contacts cannot be shared.

2. in order to save photos to each device, as you say, each device must be connected to the same ID of Apple/iCloud.  Why not consider sharing photos via the sharing of the family?

  • Family sharing and creation of local Web site/blog


    I have been looking online and have not found what I'm looking for... Maybe I'm using the wrong terminology in my query. I hope this is something already available and I don't know where to find it on the machine...

    We have an iMAC with the recent update.
    I want to create a family blog on the iMAC, that would 'feel' like a Web site - where I can post family updates, calendar, news, academic results and achievements, photos, a family journal, recipes, etc... each topic under a different title, which open as tabs in the browser, in order to avoid having to open different applications for this information. But I want all to reside on our family computer. It is accessible directly from the machine at home, nothing online.

    I am familiar with, but once again, I want to keep this content just us.

    I am listed with family sharing and iCloud, Apple has something that does what I'm looking for, but I ask just the wrong question.

    Thank you


    No, please read that sharing of the family is in OS X Yosemite: set up the sharing of the family. If you want to set up a blog, you need a blogging app and a place to store. I advise to use Google to research what you need. I found the following article by doing a quick search on Google that you may find useful.

  • Family sharing and Apps

    I joined apple music and decided to upgrade so that my family can also listen to music, I did it because the price is reasonable.

    I'm a little confused and a little annoyed of cannot just leave your family to listen to music, you agree when setting up that any member of the family who decides to purchase music or Apps YOU will pay for their stuff!

    This includes set up subscription services until you decided to make the family sharing.

    I'm using the service correctly, is it set up right?

    I hope that someone can let me know another way to implement this sharing family...

    If that's the only way then APPLE LOOK please, can't you have another level in the subscription that allows the music on its own?

    I'm sure if you did your customer would increase

    Waiting in anticipation


    Hi simonnightclub

    You sign up for an individual membership or a family membership?
    Just turn on the part of the family is not enough for the Apple's music. If you want your family to share the subscription, you must update the members of the family.

    This will give you up to six people unlimited access to music from Apple.

  • Why only download family movies shared and not stream

    I use the family sharing and for some reason that my children need to download a movie, I buy to watch while I always listened to?

    Hi bjohnson33,

    I understand that you have a question about the sharing of family and purchased movies streaming.  Family sharing is used to share the iTunes purchases by downloading the content.  For streaming content, you should always use home sharing.  Here's how it works:

    Use home sharing to share iTunes content with other devices

    Home sharing lets you share and stream content from the iTunes library on your computer to other computers and Apple TV iOS devices.

    Use the home sharing on your Mac or PC

    You can use Home sharing with up to five computers on your home network. Follow these steps to use home sharing:

    1. Open iTunes on your computer.
    2. Sign in with your Apple and the password. Use the same Apple ID to each computer or device on your network to share at home.
    3. Go to file > home sharing.
    4. Turn on home sharing.

    Use the home sharing on your iPhone, iPad or iPod touch

    1. Go to settings > music or settings > videos.
    2. Scroll to home sharing.
    3. Press Sign in.
    4. Then, enter your Apple ID and password. Use the same Apple ID to each computer or device on your network to share at home.

    You can now use home sharing on your iOS device:

    • To take advantage of shared videos, open the video application, touch Shared and select a library.
    • To take advantage of the shared music on your iPhone or iPod touch through home sharing, open the music application and tap my music > library. For iPad, type just my music. In the screen that appears, click on the category near the middle of the screen. Tap on Home Sharing, and choose a shared library to connect to.

    Use the home sharing on your Apple TV

    1. On your Apple TV (4th generation), go to settings > accounts > home sharing. On earlier models of the Apple TV, go to settings > computers.
    2. Turn on turn on home sharing.
    3. Then, enter your Apple ID and password. Use the same Apple ID to each computer or device on your network to share at home.

  • added to the family sharing with strangers

    I received a notification on my iPhone that I had been added to the family sharing and just assumed that it was an announcement of a new feature of Apple. Shortly after, I received a notification that a name I didn't recognize left my family. I went into my settings and saw that I was on a list with a few people at random. I left the band and changed my password to iCloud. No idea how it happened, or if I need to worry about what anyone?

    Welcome to the Apple community.

    Unless you accept an invitation to join the family sharing, the administrator had to know your password for to add you themselves. If that's what happened, and you don't really know these people, then you must immediately change your password.

    Of course, it is possible that someone invited you by mistake.

  • Family sharing failed


    I have since family sharing on my iOS device and asked my wife. She got the invitation but always fails in the page to select whether the location must be shared. I am not able to find a solution on the web.

  • Issue of payment family sharing?

    Hi all

    I recently set up the family sharing for my household... and linked to my wife and her sister in my Apple music subscription.  We also like the location tracker (so we can see what anyone of us and if we are sure). My sister-in-law lives with us.

    Anyway, my sister-in-law made some app purchases, and he was billed on my credit card.  I went into iTunes and iCloud settings but can not find a way to block my sister in law to make purchases on my card and she even can not find a way to have purchases charged to their own card.

    Is there a way to do this?  We would not take him out of family sharing and not be able to use the tracker location or my subscription of Apple's music.

    Any input would be appreciated!


    While she is in sharing family (and not the Organizer) she cannot use her own credit card, it can either use a balance on his account or your (as organizer) credit card: payments - Apple Support and family purchases

    After you set up your family, anytime a family member throws a new purchase, that it will be charged directly to your account, unless the family member has gift or store credit. First of all, their store credit will be used to pay the invoice total or partial. The rest will be billed to the card of the family of the Organizer. The family Organizer, the revenue generated by the transaction will be sent to you

  • Family sharing ate my apps

    I have an iPad, retina, iPhone 5 and two pounds of Mac, which used to be under an Apple ID. This ID is shared by my wife and me. More recently, we ran into issues with content going to too many places, so I decided to make a new ID I have spent my iPad and iPhone more to my new ID and family sharing... so I thought. At some point I had to clear in addition to space on my iPad, so I deleted some of the largest applications knowing that they would not be gone forever. Well, I'm not sure now.

    The iTunes of my wife, I see some of the apps that I used to use on my iPad, but not all of them. Some of the apps I bought as part of this first ID disappeared from everything, including the app store. The app store to buy me some of these applications. It turns out that the creation of a new ID and going to family sharing has been more devastating than what we had before.

    I went through a lot of step by step tutorials, and nothing has helped. My country codes are up to date, and I rechecked all my payment info.

    Thoughts? Thank you.

    All purchases are always related to the Apple that was used to buy and download ID the. If your woman "inherited" this Apple ID, then she is the one who needs to set up the family sharing and grant you access. (Or change account)

    You don't need to pay again for your applications. Simply log in to the store with this original Apple ID. All your app, from those who have been abandoned, appear on the purchases tab.

  • iCloud family shared storage

    I have a long video on my iPhone, I've shared on the sharing of family and now is visible on my iPad, I deleted from my iPhone because of the size.

    where is it stored? Is there a limit to how much you can share and time of when it will remove

    For shared albums are limits the number of albums and articles in the albums, you can share.

    For shared albums is without time limit how long an item will remain, but there are limits the number of items that you can download in a certain period of time.

    See this list: My Photo Stream and iCloud Photo Sharing limits - Apple Support

    The elements are stored in iCloud and will remain, as long that you do not remove the shared album or the items contained in the album.

    But you must keep a backup on a computer; just in case where you accidentally delete your share of the album list the shared. You will not be able to restore from iCloud.
