My last few employers have issued me Macbook Pro's to use on the job. There are a several apps I tend to purchase and install on them with the caveat that the account is not my personal account, but one I create using my work email address for that employer. Since I'm buying the apps from the Apple store with my own funds, it would be great to bring them with me after I leave the company ( I do 1-2 year contract work ) to the next job. I haven't figured out a way to do this, so I thought I'd brainstorm here. Some ideas that might ( untested ) work Add employer account to my personal family account. I might be able to buy the license on my personal account and share it with a family member. Log into to app store ( not icloud, understandably no employer wants their IP / customer data in the cloud ) with my personal account and authorize the apps on the work laptop. Deauthorize it when I leave the company. Again, these are only for app that I personally own. Anything the employer purchases, they keep. Thoughts? Experiences? Advice?
