    I was just wondering how most of you handle having separate Apple ID accounts for iTunes and iCloud. It looks like I might have to create a new Apple ID in order to use iCloud on my iPhone 6. All of my apps and songs, however, have been purchased using an existing Apple ID.

    Will family sharing allow me to just use my new Apple ID while still seeing all the music and apps purchased on my older Apple ID? I would have to set the new ID as the primary account. Will this work? Is there another way that would be better? Thanks!

    I have 4 devices. iPad Air, iPad mini, 2 iPhone 6 plus. I went with family sharing first but the realizes iTunes Match is not supported. I would have to pay for iTunes Match on 3 other devices. So I reverted back to all of us having our own Apple IDs but all devices have my iTunes ID so we can all share my music on iTunes Match and everything else.
