iCloud family sharing Question

Dear Apple,

My name is Noah Gilbert, and I happen to be the Expert IT with our family.

Unfortunately, for these past years, our family of 4 shared an Apple ID and somethings happened.

When one of us call each other, that the contacts of the things up, and also when you go in recent, there are people that I didn't call, but have called others in our family, and it's something that are not nice and also very scary.

I read upward on your iCloud, sharing of family and are generally fascinated on this subject, but when diving into the details, it's when it gets a bit murky.

If all 4 of us was to create an Apple ID and had to get the sharing of the family, what would happen to all of our data.

The main question is:

What would happen to all our Contacts, Mail, calendar, iTunes purchases and also the App Store purchases?

Also, when it would be and current execution, will be our contacts and the stuff of colander, be separated into different lists of info.

I would really appreciate it if someone from this community come back to me, please.

Thank you

First, everyone should have their Apple ID individual to avoid confusion you describe above.  If that were the case, then all the Contacts, calendar, e-mail, purchases of App Store and iTunes purchases will be remained connected to these accounts; under family sharing, however, there are some things that can and cannot be shared.  You can have a read more about it here - What are the types of content can I share with sharing family?-Apple Support

  • iCloud family sharing - accounts

    In recent years, I used an Apple ID for all devices. We finally quite peripheral, so I use iCloud family and add members. Two of these members are children who have devices that is unique.

    The question - we go to invite them and enter their e-mail address, it tells me I can't send an invitation to myself.

    I signed my account main iCloud on each device.

    Any ideas? Thank you

    It gives you this error because everyone in the sharing of the family should have their own Apple ID.

  • 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.

  • 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?

    Say you that you be billed for the purchase of your sister? If it is then see the page that you have published since:

  • Defining a poster frame for iCloud, photo sharing

    The Question:

    How to set a custom frame displays for videos shared via iCloud, photo sharing?

    Use case:

    I have converted old home movies VHS into segments of small 3-5 minutes and you want to share these clips to my family via iCloud, photo sharing. This will allow the videos to travel with them on their iPhone.

    The problem:

    These segments are stored in the Photos app. I have chosen some of these segments and chose an image poster - it works. I right click, choose sharing to iCloud, photo sharing. The file appears in a newly shared album, but the poster frame is returned to the first frame of the video. In the case of the VHS, it's a blurred image, or a framework that does not clearly show the content (for example, a sofa, or heaven).

    Right-clicking on a video gray shared on the option to reselect a poster frame.

    What you need to do is clip from the first few frames of video in PHotos. Double-click on the video to open it in read mode.  Click on the speed on the right button and select Trim.

    Turn the left side of the yellow box to the right to remove foires executives

    Click on the button on the right.

    Now try to add to the shared album.

  • Extremely confused by the family sharing

    I'm trying to set up a family music subscription and it was extremely unpleasant and difficult.  I have music works on my iPhone (organizer), but on my child iPad mini, when I pull up the music, he doesn't seem to have a subscription (request 3 month trial).  I've been going in circles for a few hours now trying to figure out what I did wrong - I have set up a group family, turned on sharing, etc..

    My question is this: when I open the family member in icloud on his iPad, under purchases families, this account must be of the organizer or the Member of the family.

    Should I be signed in his iTunes on the iPad?  I found the idea of the family sharing that each could have their own accounts and purchases and subscriptions could be shared.

  • 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 wordpress.com, 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 shared & Apple pay payments

    I got iCloud family configured sharing with my partner for some time, with my main flow configured as a shared payment card. I changed since that to my debit card to our account to join.

    I pay Apple set up on my iPhone and only linked it to my main debit card - it is the card available only to pay Apple.

    If I'm shopping in the App Store / iTunes - what card would be charged?

    It will be any method of payment you have linked to iTunes - payment methods that you can use in the iTunes Store, the App Store and the iBook Store - Apple Support
