    Can we do this yet?

    I use my gmail account for everything now, but I actually have two old additional Apple IDs that I used to use for iTunes and app store purchases. Really tired of maintaining three, when two of them I haven't actively used in probably 7-8 years. I know Cook talked about them getting ready to do this years ago, can we do it yet? Would love to consolidate to one Apple ID.

    As far as I'm aware, Apple still does not allow Apple IDs to be merged together. The reason they don't allow it may be for security.

    Unfortunately iTunes purchases are tied to the appleID which purchased it due to licensing issues. You can set up multiple ID's with family sharing which can help a bit. When I get a software update on my Mac if it was purchased with another ID I (usually!) am prompted to sign in using the ID which purchased the item.

    I dug in this year to check on that – unfortunately nothing yet.
