    Hi,

    My ex and I used to share the same AppleID on our iPhones. Is it possible that she keeps that ID and I make a new one without losing all my apps etc?

    Thanks

    Without any further contact between you and her?

    No.

    You can create a new Apple ID, but you're probably going to have to call Apple if you want to sort out who owns what apps.

    I'm on good terms with her.

    I make a new Apple ID and reinstall my apps? Or how does it work?

    Family sharing.

    One of you enables it and then adds a new family member. You (or her) gets the invite and that sets them up on a new Apple ID. That person then uses the new Apple ID but has access to the applications downloaded by the primary account.
