    Hi,
    so I get the basic concept of family sharing but I have one question I havent been able to answer through the Apple website.

    In the past me and my wife have been using the same appleid (mine). If I now turn on family sharing on both our devices with my appleid, and then delete my appleid from her phones itunes settings.
    Will the apps on her phone get deleted or does family sharing immediately "take over" and leave the apps as is.

    Thanks for your help

    cheers!

    In my initial test of this way of doing it with my kids iPad, it appears it is 'taking over.' When the first update comes, it may request to download it from the parent account (at least it did on the kids account) but then it said 'Parent already purchased' and downloaded it under their iTunes account.
