When using family sharing, which Apple ID do you sync to?


iMore Question

When using family sharing, which apple id do you sync to?

I just started using Family Sharing. I set up a separate apple id for each child. We used to use one and all sync to the same id and computer. Now that I have separate accounts, which id does my child sync to? The one previously used or her new one? If so how do I get previous purchases and music on her id and computer?

Set the old account as organizer in family sharing and then sync all of the other IDs to it.

Settings > iCloud > Family
