    Hello - we have iPhones and iPads and macbooks in the house.
    Basically, my wife and i on iphones and our 8yr old son on his ipad)

    At the moment, we're all using just one 1 account and I just add emails to that account for iMessage.
    Now, the problem is, sometimes it gets messed up and we all get everyone's texts and contacts etc.

    What is the correct way of organizing multiple IOS devices in the house?

    Do we just create different accounts then?

    I'd really appreciate answers and tips please.

    Each person needs his/her own iCloud account. You don't need/want each others' texts and email (except maybe your son's).

    Thanks. that's what I thought. I can't remember why ...er... I think we used just one account in the past as my wife was on Android so it was just me and my son's ipad (using my details especially for his app store)
    My wife just got an iphone a couple of weeks ago.. So I'll change all our details to have our own individual accounts. Well, my wife and I anyway.
