I've heard a lot of conflicting information about how many devices/computers can share an iTunes account. What are the actual limits, and are devices distinguished from computers?

My current configuration is (all using the same iTunes account):

  • One Windows computer with iTunes
  • One iPad
  • One iPhone
  • One Apple TV

I want to add:

  • Another, separate Windows account (on the same computer), that will use a separate install of iTunes
  • Two more iPhones
  • Another iPad

I'd like everything to share the same iTunes account - is this possible?

This is what the official Apple documentation says:

Your Apple ID can have up to 10 devices and computers (combined) associated with it. Each computer must also be authorized using the same Apple ID. Once a device or computer is associated with your Apple ID, you cannot associate that device or computer with another Apple ID for 90 days. You can view which devices or computers are currently associated, remove unused devices or computers, and see how long before they can be associated with a different Apple ID from the Account Information page in iTunes on your computer.

There is a limit of 10 devices. And I can confirm everything is working well with 10 devices! (2 iPhones, 3 iPads, 2 PC, 2 Macs and 1 AppleTV)

Yes, you can. And if you have iTunes Match you have your Music on all these Devices. I love it.
