Tech News and Commentary
Dave and the team discuss Elon Musk’s Tesla buy, Huawei’s new flagship, Apple allowing users in the US to download their data, technology and education, Snap original shows, and more.
Laura in Windsor Ontario Canada listens on AM800 CKLW and asked: “My daughter and I both have Mac devices. She has an iPad, we both have iPhones and I have a Macbook that I work on. I’m wondering how we can share the music between – I have an iTunes account and I created an iTunes account for her. But her music that we purchased previously on my account is not there. So how can we share everything between our two iTunes accounts?“
Laura, Apple gives users the option to share their apps, music, movies, and more with their families.
To set up Family sharing, open Settings, then tap on your name and you should see the option right there.
On your Mac, you can find the option under System Preferences and then iCloud.
Keep in mind that Family Sharing is mostly expected to be used by families with young children, not by groups of adults, so you may not be crazy about some of the features.
Family Sharing allows people to track each other’s devices, and access shared iCloud data storage, if you’d rather keep the accounts separate and private, you may have to decide what you want to share and what you don’t. However, Family Sharing is a free feature and it’s available to all modern Apple Devices.
