Please, this is not a debate of whether Apple WANTS you to share Apple ID's/iCloud ID's, this is asking about the potential pro's and con's of sharing ID's. So all you morality brigades begone! My wife will be getting her first iPhone on Oct 14. I'm wondering if it would be a good idea for her to use my Apple ID and soon-to-be iCloud ID. There are many reasons that I want to do this, but I'm wondering what kind of problems we may run into. Below I'm listing allthe potential consequences of doing this (both good and bad) that I can think of. Can you think of any other consequences? Or do you recommend doing anything differently? 3rd party Apps syncing :good: This is a big reason for wanting to share iCloud accounts. Ex. We can each enter our purchases into our budget tracking app and they will automatically sync with each other sync Calendar :good: we will both easily be able to see each other's work schedule's etc Won't need to double purchase apps :good: honestly not a driving factor, but it is a consequence and this list would be lacking if it weren't mentioned Sync Address book :neutral: we aren't hiding any phone contacts from each other and it would be nice is many instances to have her contacts, but it would be annoying to have so many unnecessary contacts. We could create our own "group" but they don't seem very easy to manage(at least from the iPhone). Also can a person be in both groups? iMessage issues? :bad: how would iMessage work on my iPad? Will it import iMessages from both my iPhone and her iPhone? That would be very annoying. only 1 me.com email account? :bad: not a huge issue, but if her iPhone shares my ID then she probably wouldn't be qualified for another me.com email address? Photostream sync... good. Docs in the cloud... good. iTunes in the cloud... good. backups... shouldn't be any issues there? I think I've talked enough for now... I mainly want to have those first two. Thoughts?
