Yes, use the same Apple ID, do not create a new one. The Apple ID is what 'ID's' you to the Apple system, allows backups, preferences, purchases, etc to be sync'd between devices. If you create a new Apple ID, you will lose all your purchases, etc. You CAN use a different Apple ID for the App store than your Messages, iCloud, backups etc. Before Family ...

You can create an Apple ID for him when setting up his iPad. For him to be able to use the same apps that you have paid for, and to -mostly- avoid buying things twice, you can set his Apple ID as part of your family on Family Sharing. The progress of each game will be more difficult or impossible to transfer, depending on how and where it is saved. The ...

You will have to go to the other devices and remove your phone number and email address from iMessage. It's always better to check those devices carefully when making a switch to make sure you don't have other cross linking happening.

Contact Apple Support. Usually when you create an Apple ID, you supply a credit card #, an address, phone number, etc, all of which can be used to verify your identity. Worth a shot.

You seem to be in quite a pickle. Since the email address is either invalid or does not belong to you, you probably want to call Apple to sort this out. If you have not used the account for anything. you could just set up as usual, but I'm guessing you already started using that account. Go to Apple ID Support for more info.

I don't believe that it's punishable if you were to get caught, Apple's not a government branch, so it's not like it would be fraud (I don't know how Apple would find out, anyway). Do you have any relatives or friends in the US or Britain or any of the other eligible countries that would allow top use their address? That's the best thing to do. You can ...

Its more than easy to switch Apple ID's but to be able to download your purchases music is another story. I have a Mac Mini and my dad recently updated it so that Apple Music would be available. He then logged in to his user and created his Apple Music account. Now when I go on my user, I have tried to download some things that I have purchased from the ...

If you are resetting these things and then restoring then from a saved local backup that second part is tied to your Mac. You can reset an iPad to its "factory fresh" state from any Mac/PC, but you might not be able to reset an iPad to your desired "factory fresh eco_bach kiosk" state from any but yours.

You are definitely mistaken ;) it can be done by any computer, Mac or PC! As long as you have the IPSW file you can restore it from iTunes on any platform. It's only 'tied' when you sync your iPhone with iTunes library.

Go to Settings-> iTunes & App Store then tap your UK Apple ID and tap "Log Out". Then just sign in with your German Apple ID. After you've downloaded the app, you should be able to switch back to the UK Apple ID in the same way without anything being affected.

Screen Sharing works across multiple Apple IDs and is probably what you're looking for. So long as someone at home can access your iMac and click "Accept" on the Screen Sharing notification that they will receive, it will allow you to remotely control the iMac and copy files on and off of it.

If I get what you mean, you would probably like Family Sharing. It allows you to share data with another Apple ID, but keep thing separate (e.g your mom can download iTunes things from your account and you can download things from her account, but she can't read your iMessage and you can't read hers).

Can they, yes. Do they any/every time you sign in to the App Store, I think not. Apple would probably be able to collate your device's anonymous and unique ID with your Apple ID if you opt in or agree explicitly to a question that informs you that the serial number will be checked to verify eligibility for a specific product. You might capture the ...

I just had this issue recently i wanted to download a few apps from my previous country... and the apple consultants emailed me saying that I can just go ahead and re-purchase the apps and he'll redeem those (provided you hv proof of receipts). It's a hassle & yes Apple should hv just allow us to merge apps no matter where on earth we buy the apps ...

All account information is stored online, including account balances. Whether or not you are logged in to that account or another account on the iPad doesn't matter, as long as you don't make any purchases on his account.

Fill out the form to create an Apple ID using his information: https://appleid.apple.com/account He will then start using his own ID and probably lose his old history, or you could get a new ID. Someone must start fresh I believe.

You can create individual iCloud IDs and keep the old ID as store ID, common for every user. That way you won't have to purchase everything again and still the data within your apps will remain different as your iCloud IDs are different. Optionally, you can just create two more IDs and use family sharing with the first ID to share all your purchased ...

If you each set up separate accounts, then all join Family Sharing, this would allow you to each re-download any app, song, movie, book etc purchased by the 'family'. Your individual Contacts details, Calendar, progress in games etc would all be lost in this transition, except for the Family Organiser, who would still have access to the original data. ...

For Home Sharing: You have to rip all your cd's first. Then open iTunes and turn on Home Sharing. From Apple's ...

Yes - stacking gift cards is not an issue. You will just carry a larger balance and less risk of losing the cash. You lose the flexibility to redeem them on another account.
