    Hi.

    I setup Family Sharing yesterday.
    Only to discover that each device in my household would now have to pay for iTunes Match separately.
    AYFKM?
    This is a deal breaker for me.

    Haven't downloaded or purchased anything since setting it up.
    Can I cancel ALL family sharing accounts and go back to the setup I had before?
    -my iTunes account on all devices.
    -iTunes Match on all devices, ripped & purchased content shared.

    OR is there going to be some way I'm screwed now?
    (what are the consequences)

    FInd my iPhone:
    No big deal to keep doing it manually.

    Shared Calendars:
    Pretty sure that can be done manually as well.

    Shared photos:
    Worked well enough before with photo stream.
    Going to to use iCloud Drive.

    App purchases:
    KIds don't have the password, can't download anything.

    Will restoring to a backup prior to Family Sharing (after cancelling it) make a difference? (I'm thinking it won't)

    Found someinfo on iTunes support forum, but it doesn't answer my question.

    Leave Family Sharing

    You should be able to go back easily.

    Yes, I tried family sharing and didn't like it. I just turned it off and deleted the family sharing accounts on each phone/iPad/iPod and all went back to normal. It was easy.

    Thanks Nolander, good to know.
    I had this fear/suspicion that Apple might not let me go back, seeing as they want more money for iTunes Match with Fam Shr.
