How do I get my contacts off my son's iPad?


iMore Question

My 8 year old son has an iPad Mini. We are using the Family Share and I created an iCloud account for him. I've set it up where it's all his iCloud info on the iPad and turned off contacts so that he would be able to message his friends and myself. However, my contacts show up. How do I stop this from happening? I've tried turning off contacts and selecting delete from the iPad option but they still appear. Any suggestions?

Unless I'm missing something, if his iCloud ID is different than yours then your iCloud information should not be syncing to his device and vice-versa. I don't use the Family Share option so I'm not too keen on its function with the exception of the obvious.
