First log in to Apple ID and update his birthday, name etc. Second, log in to the organizer account and change the role for all accounts that are incorrect. If this is correct and still shows Adult, you can kick him from Family Sharing then invite him again as a non-adult. :) If you save their real birthdays, they will be picked up as minors/teenagers by ...

Start by recovering the password to example22@example.com at https://iforgot.apple.com (and use the guidance provided there in case you don't know the answers to the security questions). Then proceed with decoupling your phone from the old ID. If you are unable to recover the password to example22@example.com, Apple can remove the old AppleID from your ...

Yes, you can. However, since Apple ID's aren't designed to be used with multiple users Family Sharing would be a more suitable option. To do this you'll first want to turn off the syncing features you don't want in Settings > iCloud. To avoid receiving each other's calls, etc you'll want to disable some of the Continuity features like "iPhone Cellular ...

If an item is purchased with an Apple ID (even if it is a free item) it can only be updated using that same Apple ID. For example, if you downloaded the Facebook app using the Apple ID "foo@example.com" and you now use the Apple ID "bar@example.com" then you must either update the app using "foo@example.com" or delete and re-download the app using "bar@...

You can share a calendar. Based on my personal experience, you could make a Google Calendar and sign in to whatever devices with that Google account and have it set to sync calendars. I think it could also sync contacts, but I haven't tried that. That way contacts and calendars is separate from your Apple IDs.

This can be done on your own but since it would be the first time you set this up, I recommend getting Apple's help. If you're close to an Apple store, make a Genius appointment. If not, and one of the devices is still under warranty, contact Apple via chat or phone and have them walk you thru it. Having someone with you while you do this is extremely ...

I have a similar problem. The best solution for me was to forward the mail from the old Apple ID to the new Apple ID. This way you can migrate over time to the new Apple ID. Log in in icloud.com using your old Apple ID. Open Mail. Click Actions (cog in bottom-left) and choose Preferences. Select Forward my email to and enter your new Apple ID. Click Done....

No - if you really have two different AppleID each with different @icloud/@me/@mac addressed - they cannot be merged or swapped one for the other. If you just want to use the @icloud.com to log in to one AppleID that's also known by a different email address - you can do that easily by changing the username on each device. See Apple ID - Want to make my xxx@...

I don't have an iPhone myself, but because the account can be based on email address as well, I believe it in theory should be possible to keep using iMessage after removing your sim. However, I have experienced that my friends who have gone overseas and used a different sim have ended up having iMessage being connected to the new number. In other words, it ...

This is a commmon problem with Hackintosh'ed computers. Is the computer you are using with OSX genuine? Wether it is a real Mac device or not, the steps to fix this should be very similar. Here is a very long thread describing each step to fix this in great detail. To start off, I would make sure that your Apple ID is verified. You can check the 'Verified' ...

You are not able to switch cards with your Apple ID. The only option is to create a new account with a different card. Only with Apple Pay can you switch cards when making physical purchases.

Take it to an apple store. They will lookup purchase history from serial number and if it shows that the company paid for it, they will wipe it for you.

No, if it was not originally purchased/downloaded from the Apple App Store, you will not find it in the Purchased section. Usually, enterprise apps are distributed from that company's 'app store' only. If they are deleted from your iOS device, you can revisit the company app store and re-download the app again. It's up to that company if they want to have ...

The app was never shared to your Apple ID and was not associated with your Apple ID in any way. If the app was still on the store and needed updating, your friend's Apple ID would be used. The app remains bound to your friend's Apple ID and thus you need your friend's Apple ID again to install it elsewhere.

Your girlfriend's Account preferences have all her messages going to her iPad. On her phone, she should go to Settings -> Messages -> Send and Receive and make sure that all the addresses under "You can be reached by " are checked.

This is perfectly normal behavior for an account that has Two Step Verification enabled. In order to have enabled it, you must have a trusted device enrolled that can receive either SMS or be found by "Find My Phone" because that's the device which will receive the verification code you enter after your password. So, just enter the verification code that ...

Actually, you can send SMS from your iPad to anyone, just like your iPhone can text non-iPhone users. It's a complicated multistep process to set it up, but here goes: First, make sure you're signed into iMessage on your iPad in Settings > Messages > iMessage. Jump over to your iPhone and confirm you're signed into iMessage and iCloud with the same account ...
