    I've been an iPad fan since day one. Since then, I've bought iPads from every generation and still own all of them. I recently bought my eleventh iPad and got a message from Apple saying that I can't sync to it because too many iPads are registered to my account. So I assume the maximum allowed is ten iPads to any account.

    It's asked me to unlink one of the first ten from my account if I want to be able to sync the 11th one. How do I even do that?

    I have literally hundreds on one account. This is Apple being silly.

    Someone on MR told me Apple doesn't limit the number of iDevices on one account but they do have a total of 5 computer limit on the same account.

    iTunes Match does have a 10 device limit, I wonder if that is the limit you are bumping up against?

    http://www.apple.com/itunes/itunes-match/

    iTunes Store and Home Sharing has a 5 computer limit, no limit to devices is published.

    EDIT: Whoops, spoke to soon. In addition to iTunes Match, it looks like Automatic downloads also has the 10 device limit:

    I don't need Apple to tell me I have too many iPads....my wife acts as their surrogate and tells me that daily.

    Assuming you bought the following;
    iPad
    iPad 2
    iPad with Retina display (3)
    The New iPad with Retina display (4)
    The iPad Air (5)
    Mini iPad (6)
    Mini iPad with retina display (7)
    How did one of each turn into 11? Why could you possibly need all of those activated and in use? I thought we were bad with an iPad 2, 4 and iPad Air all in one house.

    Forgive me for pointing this out, but you're over thinking this. I hardly think he needs to itemize his inventory of iPads to clarify his conundrum, which at this point it would appear has been clarified.
