    Hello everyone,

    In our household (couple) our setup is dated due to our iPhone 4's holding us back and neglect.

    It is currently running on 1* apple ID and 2* iCloud Acc's to enable access to purchased apps before family sharing.

    I have a rmbp and iP4 on one Acc and GF has iPad 4 and iP4 on the other.

    Since upgrading to iP6s*2, I would like to give our setup a complete overhaul.

    On my rmbp, I would like to create 3*User Acc's ; BF, GF and Admin.

    Separate 2*apple ID and 2*iCloud Acc's.

    And use the iPad as a communal device.

    I would really appreciate any advice, thoughts and criticisms regarding this.

    1. Separate apple ID's and iCloud - Am I right in thinking GF will

    already have an apple ID using her iCloud?

    2. Communal iPad - Is it advisable to create new apple ID and iCloud

    for this device and use family sharing?

    Due to some apps not supporting family sharing, we use a single AppleID for all purchases from the App stores. Makes it easier to share the apps we purchase. We each have our own iCloud accounts for mail and such.

    Family sharing had some issues out of the box and I haven't kept up to see if it works better now.
