    iPhone 12 mini Does adding a family member with 2FA enabled convert non-2FA family members to 2FA?

    Family sharing and movies

    I have two adults on my iCloud family share, I have it ticked "share my purchases with my family", but I can't see none of my movies on their devices. We are talking about 250 iTunes movies that I own... Their devices are running iOS 11.

    App Store, Shared Purchases Gone?

    Does anybody know how to access shared purchases on iOS 11? You used to be able to go with under updates and see other people in your family plans purchases, but that's no longer the case from what I am seeing. Any ideas?

    I like Apple's Photo Stream. It's one of the best ways to circulate photos to family members. But there's one limitation I wish Apple would change. Shared Photo Streams let my wife and I post photos to one stream, so if either of us gets a photo or video of our kids, we can both share it to...
