Family sharing

I bought a new laptop. When asked to put an Apple ID I tried to use the same as the one I have on all my other devices, it says that I could not do that and I was forced to create a different Apple for the new computer ID. Now how do I share the content of my other devices

    She will be able to keep all purchases on his account.  See this document:

    Note that "all eligible songs, albums, movies, TV shows, books and applications already bought by members of the family are immediately available for everyone in the family."

  • Family sharing woes

    I like the idea of family sharing, but is it possible that my 17 year old son can participate in sharing family so he can take advantage of our subscription iTunes but allow him to make purchases with his iTunes account? I have the family facility and everybody sharing

    Hello blmclaws,

    Thank you for using communities of Apple Support.

    I see you want to add your son to share your family enjoy the iTunes subscription, but make purchases with their iTunes account. How the family sharing is set up, all purchases are made with the credit card provided by the Organizer. The exception is that if a member has a credit on his iTunes, usually by a gift card account, then purchases will come from this credit until the credit card of the Organizer is responsible. Thus, in the case of your son, he could buy gift cards and add them to their account before shopping. In this way, the Organizer will not be charged.

    Is there a way to family-part between the two apple belonging to the same individual id?

    Yes, there is no reason why you can't invite you to join the family sharing if you have a second ID, people often make this option to retain access to iTunes content purchased through several accounts.

    This turns into a real pita.  I created a family sharing for the old iPad, which is very low on space, I'm empty I can't seem to get rid of the pictures, it is probably better just to get rid of the entire library, but everything appears.  Can't delete the photos that would take years to do anyway if it worked the same.  Disable all options photo to iCloud and turn their back on did nothing

    Hello evechoccy!

    Thanks for reaching out on the share of the family option does not arise with the iPhone of your son 4.

    The reason for this is the iPhone 4 can only go to iOS 7 and sharing of the family did not become an option until iOS 8 and later versions. You can see the family sharing requirements here: family shares - Apple Support

    Kind regards.

  • 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.
