    Has anyone found a way to use different ID's for the App Store and the iTunes store? Since Apple refuses to merge apple ID's, I have an ID for Music, and a different one for apps. iOS6 allowed this, it appears to be gone in iOS7. :mad:

    Well what happens when you try to use a different one for each?

    it replaces the other. Each app allows you to enter an ID, but once entered, it matches the ID.

    Just tried this on my iPad on iOS 6. Switching accounts in one store switches account in the other. So this behavior is the same as on iOS 7. Not sure why you thought otherwise.

    I "updated" to beta 3 but I remember going through the setup of a fresh install of beta 2 and there was an option for entering more than one Apple ID.
    Maybe it's gone in beta 3 or maybe it can only be done during initial setup.
    Or maybe it's just a bug.
    :confused:

    There is an option to setup using a different ID for iCloud and iTunes but not for the iTunes Store and the App Store. Never has been.
