Hello all, my parents are about to get an iPad 2 (as soon as they become available again where I live) and the idea is that it's going to be connected to my iMac only for OS updates and to test my own apps on it. There will be no other computer accessible to them, in fact the iPad will effectively be their computer. I am undecided on whether I should create a dedicated Apple ID for it using my father's email address, or just re-use mine. They are not going to need to install apps themselves, and I live one floor down so it's not a big deal to type my password; by using my ID, I would also be able to install the apps I have already purchased for my iPhone, and update them directly on the iPad. (I know for a fact that you can install apps downloaded with an ID other than the current "logged in" one, but updating them is messy both on a computer and on a device, as you have to log out and in.) With my own ID, Home Sharing for the iPod app would also work something they would truly enjoy as my iMac is within wifi reach from their apartment and as for Game Center, I think it allows a user different than the system-wide Apple ID to be logged in. The main concern is FaceTime: does the FT app on iPad 2 allow to be logged in with a different Apple ID, or does it use the system-wide one? It would be annoying if someone tried to call me using the ID rather than my phone number, and their iPad started ringing... So, how does everybody deal with Apple IDs on "family" iPads?
