    Hey guys
    With the imminent launch of music I'm now obviously researching Family Sharing as will likely go for the Family subscription, and this requires iCloud Family Sharing setup.

    HOWEVER.... my iTunes/Apple ID is not the same as my iCloud ID (still don't understand why Apple won't allow this merge...) so if I set up sharing on my iCloud ID there won't be any purchases or card information to be shared...

    Surely I need this to be linked to my iTunes account ID, which is not my iCloud account.

    Can anyone help with some answers/unravel a better way to go about this please?

    So the simplest way to find out was to just try it!
    I can set up FS with iCloud and use my Apple ID as the purchasing account.
