While this is a bit of specific case, I do know plenty of people besides myself who are using a single Apple ID to share apps between several devices.
As great a fit as the Apple ecosystem has been, it can also be a real hassle trying to keep all of those devices upgraded, backed up, and synced with 2 different computers in our house. Unfortunately, Apple was not giving away any specific answers to this and many other specific questions during the beta. This put a damper on my enthusiasm for iCloud, as my wife and I would now have to pick and choose who got to use what sync features. When you set up your first iCloud account, it automatically uses the email address of the Apple ID that you are logged into your device with. Once you’re ready, go to the Settings app on your device, and then to Mail, Contacts, Calendars. After selecting you country, and entering your date of birth, you will finally be ready to set up your new iCloud sub-account.
Now, you’ll want to turn on any of the features that you want to be synced to iCloud.
As for Photo Stream, it really depends on what kinds of pictures you take, and how you want to access them. As long as your device has backup enabled under the master account in the iCloud tab of Settings, your device should automatically attempt to backup once per day when it is plugged in and logged onto WiFi with Internet access. There is, however, one small caveat to mention in regards to backups that ties into the next topic. You can readily see exactly how much of your free 5GB (or more, if you choose to upgrade) you are using, and exactly what apps are using it.
I noticed this limitation recently when I had to reset my wife’s iPhone 3GS because of a problem related to data corruption.
While mass document syncing may be a hassle, at least we have a pretty clear picture of how it will work.
According to all of the descriptions that I have read of how data sync will work, it looks like it was really geared toward an individual user with multiple devices that they want to keep in perfect sync.
There is another potential solution to this issue, but it will unfortunately has tradeoffs of its own. If you have already set up iCloud using your Apple ID (which is the default), then you will need to go into the iCloud settings and Delete the Account. Unfortunately, doing this will split up your Photo Stream, which sort of defeats the purpose of it for family use. There is also what looks to be a bug in the initial roll out of iCloud that bears mentioning here. So, if for whatever reason, your iCloud email doesn’t show up automatically, how are you supposed to get access to your shiny, new email address?
So, as I said before, Apple has given us a way to keep using a single Apple ID for multiple users and devices. As I said in the article, Apple need to be more clear about this distinction in their general descriptions of iCloud, rather than burying this information in support articles.
After some more thought, and thanks to Mu’aawiyah Tucker post also here in the comments, it seems that the opposite setup from my original suggestion should also work for you, as well. Just be sure to turn off your Calendar, Contacts, and Notes in your master accounts before you add the new, shared sub-account. If you don’t mind, I am actually going to edit my article to include a note to check out your comment here for this alternative setup(with credit given to you as the source, of course). I will probably stick with my current setup for now, as my family really likes having Photo Stream. However, after thinking about your method of setup, I would love to see Apple change course in the future. As for the idea of sharing photos and allowing others to subscribe to people albums etc, they had that with MobileMe, and that got canned. Photo Stream is simply a method of syncing your pictures between devices, not to share them. Your method works with best for those who want to share docs and photos, otherwise, everyone can have their own account. Thank you for writing this very helpful article, although my head is still spinning from trying to figure this all out.
If you just want to use your current MobileMe address as your primary iCloud account, that shouldn’t be an issue.
Remember, even though they may be using the same email address, this will have no effect on your Apple ID for Store and iTunes purchases. I apologize…I guess my main question at this point is how do we use or can we use our old .me addresses? However, if you do want your old address to be the master account, now is the time to make the change. Your article and all the relevant comments are what I wish Apple would have started with in the beginning! Unfortunately, now that you data is merged, all cleanup on both sides will have to be done manually.
Now, you do have the ability to turn off the visibility of certain calendars, both in the iCloud web version, and on the device.
As for Contacts, Notes, and Bookmarks, I don’t think there is any way to easily share those without a big mess.
As for the difference between scenarios 1 and 3, in 1, you have two completely separate accounts that have no connection to each other.
Perhaps its not a big deal, but if you plan to actually use the mobile me email address, you will want to set it up originally on the main account holder’s device (ie the person who controls the master iTunes account).
I am not sure I followed everything you mentioned, but I actually called Apple about an issue similar to this.
Applea€™s iCloud service, paired with iOS 5 and Lion, offers users a whole wealth of new sync features, access to purchased content, and geolocation fun.
Convert, merge, or ugprade to iCloud: If you have an Apple ID that is not an iCloud account, you can convert it into one. After moving your account, however, you wona€™t be able to sync Mac Dashboard widgets, keychains, Dock items, System Preferences, and data from third-party Mac apps that integrate with MobileMe.
If youa€™re looking to move yourselfa€”and yourself onlya€”over to iCloud, here are various scenarios you may run into when signing up.
You have never purchased anything from Apple (besides this brand-new device you now have in your hands). If you have a separate account for purchases, you can add it to the Store pane in the Settings app. Add a secondary iCloud account to your Mac from the Mail, Contacts & Calendars pane in System Preferences. After youa€™ve done so, your significant other can change their Store credentials to your iCloud account. You can sync mail, contacts, calendars, reminders, and notes with a secondary (or tertiary) iCloud account via the Mail, Contacts, and Calendars pane. You can each have individual accounts but share contacts, calendars, mail, reminders, and notes. After everyone has set up their iCloud accounts, they can change their Store credentials to your original Apple ID. On the red carpet, Chloe took the spotlight as she worked the camera from all angles and posed alongside co-star Jamie Blackley and writer Gayle Forman.If I Stay tells the story of Mia Hall, a young girl who winds up in a coma following a catastrophic car accident involving her entire family.
Lawrence was super social at last night’s very swanky Sony Pictures party at the Polo Lounge in the posh Beverly Hills Hotel. This capability, along with the inexpensive and contract-free iPod Touch, is one of the big attractions of the Apple ecosystem for families.


This is one of the reasons that I was so excited when I heard Steve Jobs describe what iCloud would offer when it arrived. If we only had one Apple ID, and our iCloud account was linked to it, how were we supposed to independently synchronize our devices? I dug through the Apple forums and did several Google searches, but most of the discussions that I came across centered on the exact opposite problem- people who had multiple Apple IDs and MobileMe account who would no longer be able to use them all one a single device. I already had an established document workflow with Docs To Go and Dropbox, and we have an Exchange server at my office, so all of my Calendar, Contacts, Mail, and Notes are already backed up. Apple recently released a support article that describes some of these policies and processes. If anything except Photo Stream, Documents & Data, and Find My iPhone are selected, turn them off. When selected from within Main, Contacts, Calendar, your account edit page will look strikingly similar to what you see when you go to your main iCloud settings. However, you may notice that there are no options for Photo Stream, Documents & Data, or Backup here. You can also initiate a manual backup at any time from the Storage and Backup tab at the bottom of the iCloud settings page. This is a very useful addition that gives users a lot of control over their data and is extremely easy to use.
Unfortunately, because of that, the problem was part of her backup, so a restore wouldn’t do us any good.
We still don’t have a definitive answer on how the Data portion of this equation lines up, though. So, for me personally with an iPhone and iPad with several apps that I use on both, the data sync is going to be perfect.
It appears that every Apple device owner has the ability to set up an individual iCloud account with the standard 5 GB of free storage, regardless of their Apple ID. Also, you will no longer have the option to view all of your devices at one time in Find My iPhone.
Fortunately, there is a work-around for this issue until Apple releases an update that will squash this bug.
The setup may not be very intuitive, or the instructions very clear, but the mechanism is there, and it does work.
If the two of you want to use Document & Data sync or do backups, they will have to be shared under the master account.
The two logins are completely separate, so one should not affect the other, even if the new iCloud master account matches the Apple ID that the other of you buys stuff with. When it prompts you about keeping or deleting your data, keep it, and it should then be merged together under your new sub-account once it is set up. I know that there are plenty of other methods for sharing photos, but none are anywhere close to as easy as Apple’s. I now think it would be preferable to see Apple position Photo Stream more like Find My Friends. It sounds like you have a setup that will work, with separate iCloud accounts for yourself and your husband. You can see your email, calendar, contacts, and iWork documents if you use the Apple document apps. So, you could keep all of the information merged, and just segregate it into calendars for him, others for you, and then one or more shared calendars.
You will need to have separate master accounts or separate sub-accounts to have your own unique Contacts, Notes, and Bookmarks synced. Can I have a shared apple ID for music and apps, then 2 separate iCloud accounts for iTunes syncing as well as contacts, calendar, etc? A shared master account for Photo Sync and to keep your backups together and separate sub-accounts for personal Mail, Calendar, Contacts, Notes, and Bookmarks. Separate master accounts, which allows for separate Documents & Data sync, and a shared sub-account. Sub-accounts (as I have called them, not an official Apple term) are additional ones set up under Main, Contacts, Calendar.
It did what it advertised, it gave me a brand new AppleID which came with a new mobile me email. Unfortunately, as iCloud is the companya€™s fourth online service iterationa€”fifth, if you count registering for base-level Apple IDsa€”trying to upgrade can be confusing at best, slam-your-head-against-a-wall-in-frustration at worst. Your significant other has her own MobileMe account for syncing, but you both use your account for purchases. Everyone wants to switch to iCloud for syncing, but still use your account for purchases: Leave the Apple ID as-is. We give you the scoop on what's new, what's best and how to make the most out of the products you love. Here she is, in Hollywood, with her family, probably receiving a Golden Globe award tonight for supporting actress in David O. This was one of three or four mini galas held around town (Paramount at the Chateau Marmont, CBS Films at Soho House, Sean Penn’s Haiti fundraiser at the Montage) that spread the celebrities thin.
It was instantly going to do away with all that complication, and allow each of us to manage and backup our devices without going to a specific computer. First of all, you need to make sure that the device you are using is currently set up with the Apple ID that you plan to use going forward.
If you go to the iCloud tab in Settings, you will see that it is still active, and is still pointed to the master account, not your new sub-account.
For the sake of organization, I would suggest that you leave this enabled under the master account, so you don’t have to log in multiple times to track down your devices.
They will have to put up with the occasional work photos and review screenshots, but it is worth the hassle to be able to freely share pictures among ourselves. However, while you can turn apps on and off here, you do not have the ability to restore the data from a single app.
If multiple users under the same master iCloud account have this feature turned on, what will happen if they all have and use the same app? However, while some users have reported that devices tied to an individual or master iCloud account automatically get access to their new email account in the Mail app, many others like myself do not.
Go to your Mail, Contacts, Calendar settings, tap Add Account, choose Other, and then Add Mail Account. Thankfully, since setting up sub-accounts is done in the Mail, Contact, Calendar account settings, they don’t seem to suffer from this bug. It does seem like each feature was created in a vacuum, having its own strengths and specific purposes. Hopefully Apple will take the time to clean things up a bit in future updates so the setup process is less confusing and some of the features will work together to their fullest extent for more than just individual users. You can use a shared sub-account to sync your Contact, Calendar, and Notes, and leave your current individual master accounts as they are now. Rather than tying us to a master iCloud account, wouldn’t it be better to let users have separate iCloud accounts, and subscribe to each other’s Photo Streams (with permission, of course)? It should be fine for you to use your iCloud acount for iMessage, as long as it isn’t also assigned to your husband. I can’t on my device, so I gave some steps in my article to get set this email address up as a standard IMAP account so you can see your mail on an iOS device. Just be sure to select the option to keep your content on the device, rather than delete it, when prompted during the deletion. You can all have completely separate iCloud accounts and share nothing, have individual master accounts with a share sub-account (Calendar, Contacts, Mail, Notes, or Find My iPhone), or a shared master account, with separate sub-accounts. This feature is meant to be used to keep one user in sync across multiple devices more than anything else.


Then, you would both have all of the data, but you wouldn’t have to see it all of the time.
They are subordinate to the master account, and do not have all of the master’s features available. Each user gets their own Photo Stream, Documents & Data Sync, Backup, and 5 GB of storage. To help ease the pain (and keep your walls dent-free), wea€™ve put together some common upgrading scenarios for migrating to iCloud. When it comes to features like Documents in the Cloud, Photo Stream, and Find My Mac, however, youa€™ll be left in the cold.
If youa€™re currently syncing with MobileMe and wish to avoid the hassle, however, you may want to wait until you upgrade your system (or Apple releases a patch that adds iCloud support).
If youa€™ve added your iCloud account to your device, you should see those credentials logged in; log out and input the Apple ID you use for purchases. Your account is used for your email, and you and your significant other share contacts, and calendars. This will enable you to sync with your significant othera€™s mail, calendars, contacts, notes, or remindersa€”in addition to your owna€”by toggling the appropriate switches.
Make an iCloud account for each member of your family by visiting the website or by setting it up on their iOS 5- or Lion-enabled devices. They also seem very competitive, but in a fun way.'Brooklyn has reportedly been seeing Chloe for three months after meeting the Kick-Ass star at Paris Fashion Week earlier this year. However, I really needed a way to sync Safari bookmarks between my iPhone and iPad, so I had to take that.
Remember that, starting in iOS 5, once you sign into the Store or iTunes with an Apple ID, you are going to be tied to it for 90 days.
As for my household, I have already set up an account for my wife, and I will probably get one for my oldest son, as well. That is why you needed to turn off all of the sync features before you set up your new account.
However, it would be nice to see the ability to remove unwanted pictures from the Stream, directly from your device.
Device restores are still one size fits all, which seems very arbitrary and limiting, considering the amount of control Apple has given us over all other aspects of the feature. The iCloud backup of all her app data was absolutely useless in this instance, as there was no way for me to get to that data without doing a restore.
Now, you will have all off the services available to you, including a new Photo Stream, separate Documents and Data sync, and separate Backup. However, if you really need Documents & Data sync for more than one member of your household, then this is they only way to do it. To get around this bug, I tried to go through the same setup procedure as described earlier to set up a sub account. I have set up 3 now, and have not seen any issues with email not showing up properly for them.
Unfortunately, because of this, it seems that using certain features as they were intended can prevent you from using others.
However, just having the capability to manage a household full of devices without shuffling between computers is definitely worth the effort. Also, I’m not completely sure how smoothly you Calendar, Contact, and Notes info will migrate across when you make this switch. This is going to be a better solution for you if a shared Photo Stream is not important, as you will each be able to have separate Documents & Data sync and 5 GB of storage, but still be able to use Find My iPhone jointly.
Apple would suddenly have a pretty strong social profile with a combo of this, iMessage, and Find My Friends. I had that problem this weken, as I set up my older son with his unique address under iMessage, but not his younger brother. You can always migrate your MobileMe address and just set it up as an iCloud sub account with the description I gave in the article. It isn’t the same as having a single shared Calendar in iCal, Exchange, or Google Calendar. In scenario 3, you get the benefits of scenario 1, with a more limited set of shared data through a shared sub-account.
Your other members of the family can sign up for iCloud by going to the website or by setting it up on their iOS 5- or Lion-enabled devices.
Thanks to the ability to share my original Apple ID, we’ve been able to save a lot of money in apps and music over time.
It wasn’t an issue having all of our content combined in Photo Stream, and iCloud never had any trouble keeping our backups separated and easy to manage. Even worse, during the setup process I will take you through in a moment, they are referred to as Apple IDs. You can reset the entire stream from settings, but that is like using a sledgehammer instead of a scalpel. It would really be of great benefit to users if Apple would add this capability in the future.
For example, if you want all of your family on Photo Stream, forget about everyone being able to use Documents & Data and vice versa. It doesn’t seem like it would be much harder to implement, but they would probably have to include more management controls over what photos appear in the stream.
When my younger son discovered iMessage, he was sending messages to me under my own email address, so i was getting both the sent message, and then the recieved one, as well. If your husband does this, then you two will be able to message each other under separate addresses. Apple does not allow any mobile browsers that I am aware of to access the iCloud web portal.
After this account is set, you can decide what to do for your family’s devices using the steps I laid out in the article. Through that account, you can share Mail, Contact, Calendar, Notes, Bookmarks, and Find My iPhone.
The Apple ecosystem makes perfect sense for a family like us, and I know many others who are doing the same things with several Apple devices in their households. I guess they can be used as Apple IDs, but they don’t HAVE to be, and that is an important distinction. Also, you need to designate which device or devices are going to exclusively use the master iCloud account that is directly tied to your Apple ID.
I think that would definitely broaden Photo Stream’s appeal in the eyes of some early critics.
Since I am already using an alternative method, she probably won’t have to worry about me cluttering up her document collection, anyway. One of you can then use the master account for the rest of their needs, while the other goes through the setup I laid out to make a sub-account using their former iCloud master account. On an iOS device, you will get links to some apps, like Find My Friends, and Find My iPhone. You cannot share Photo Stream, Documents & Data, or Backup devices all in one location.
If so, that could make things even worse because of the inherent lack of consistency from app to app.
That, or both of you can use your former iCloud accounts as sub-accounts if you go with a new shared master.
