    How will backups work in Itunes. Previously, all my family devices used a common Apple ID for Itunes (and icloud).

    It seems like with family share, we won't have to do that, we can have the main account and then each sub-account for each family member. However, won't that cause issues with backups via iTunes... ie will iTunes still only be attached to one account or is that changing as well and will allow backups for each device even if they are not using the main account ID.

    You can have multiple accounts authorized on a computer already so that should not be an issue

    Thanks. Is that without logging out and logging back in to iTunes as a different user?
