    My wife and I have separate Apple accounts but are billed on the same credit card. I have some apps on my iPhone that she wants. Will I be charged if she downloads them to her phone?

    Interesting question....Gut feeling is yes, because the accounts are separate. If you had one account she would be able to use them no problem.

    Try signing into your account on her phone, downloading the apps, then signing back out.

    It really is simple, if you use your account on her iPhone, you don't have to pay again. If you use another account you will be charged again.

    It is no problem to have apps from two different accounts on one iPhone or to have several iPhones using the same account!
