My family is from Brazil and I live in Romania. I use family sharing so I can use Apple Music from my family account without paying for an extra individual subscription. This is the main feature I am interested in. However, I need to use Romanian apps and I cannot find them in the App Store because my Country/Region is set to Brazil, and not Romania. I cannot change it in the settings because it says:

The country/region for your Family is managed by

Is it possible to use another Country/Region so I can purchase Romanian apps while still using my family's Apple Music subscription?


This is not possible. All Family Sharing members have to be in the same Country/Region.

As stated in this Support article:

Not all content and content types are available in all countries or regions. To share purchased content, all family members must use the same Apple ID country or region.

    I don't want to share purchased content though. The interface makes it look like I can deactivate this feature, but in practice it won't let me. Is it possible to deactivate purchase sharing only for me? – Ariel Mar 19 '19 at 9:50
  • What if all I want to share is the 2TB of iCloud storage only? Has nothing to do with location... – Baumr Dec 6 '19 at 13:48
