Actually, there is a limit of the number of free Apple ID accounts that can be associated with any single device. Once three accounts have been created on that device, you can't create any additional ones.

Presumably this is a second-hand (third party) device?

There's a limit of three iCloud email addresses (xxx@mac.com, xxx@me.com, xxx@icloud.com). You can create an AppleID using ANY email address. Use an address from Yahoo, Outlook, GMail, etc...

What if I make an Apple ID and my device is no longer eligible for creating a free iCloud account. What difference does it make? What will I miss in that case?

Why would this restriction apply when a person is specifically setting up an iCloud account for a child? The average family has some weird number like 1.7 children. What about the family with two parents and two children, or for the crazy ones like mine, four children? Or the even crazier ones I've encountered, perhaps you have too... with... a dozen??

The restriction of 3 iCloud accounts is per device. The child can have their own device and iCloud account.

Yes they can. Taking donations for an iPad each for my four under 13 year olds. Or they can use the family iMac with their own login, in order to learn to use tech creatively, occasionally share iMessages with cousins and family across the ocean in England on their own account, make projects and build a photo library and be able to transition to a device seamlessly later. I just realized that I’ve risen to your trolling. Yet I’m annoyed enough at your answer that a family with many children spend thousands of dollars we simply don’t have for devices for young children just to get an iCloud account when there is a perfectly usable computer siting there... that I’m hitting post anyway.

The point is: Apple should waive this restriction, at least to some degree, especially for children’s accounts.

I don't know about on a computer. I referred to on iOS devices. It it what it is. They limit the number of accounts per device to keep users from having too many free 5 gb storages in iCloud. Do you even know what trolling is? You have 2 posts on this forum. I've been here almost everyday helping users and sharing since 2013. If you don't like how Apple does things, get Android.

Good for you for helping people figure things out. My apologies. My comments are only because I like Apple and I think they should fix a problem, and figured when I found the answer to my problem that I should post a real world situation where it would make sense for them to do something differently. Carry on.

Yeah, but without restrictions, Apple opens itself up to fraudulent activity.

I have perfected the art of handing down iPhones from oldest to youngest. We have always deleted the old user from device to add new user. When user gets newer device, why keep them on previous device they’ll never use again?
