To take advantage of Mac-continuity, Safari, Photos, Passbook, and Keychain sharing features, I have to use the same account on all my devices. But, location sharing is also enabled through iCloud and it only allows one device to be specified. I want to share the location of each device at the same time.

All devices are using iOS 8.1.2.

This is not possible using a single Apple ID. If you wish to share the location of each device specifically, you will need to use a unique Apple ID on each device.

  • Why would apple require me to use a single apple id to enable the other features but then require different apple id's to share the location of each device? These are conflicting configurations.

  • @Ken Because location sharing is meant to be per-person each with their own Apple ID, not per-device, as each person may have many devices but a person only has one physical location.

It's annoying I agree. But just use the "Find iPhone" app/iCloud web function when logged in, and you should be able to see all your devices.

    Welcome to Ask Different. This doesn't provide an answer to the OP's question. They want to share their location and not see the location of their devices.
