My wife and I just purchased two I phones to replace her iphone

Customer Question
4 and my iphone5.we also...
My wife and I just purchased two I phones to replace her iphone 4 and my iphone5.we also purchased a new i pad. Originally I had an iphone and ipad. when she bought her the i phone 4 it was downloaded into my account at iTunes. i didn't know you needed separate users. The phones are now separate accounts but many of the AP,s are stilled shared. Now, I want to change the old ipad account to be my wife's and I want to use the new I pad as mine. Can I change the email and password ***** the old i pad to her account somehow; and then download it to her user iTunes. that would make the data the same for each user on the next back up on both accounts. Then would i assign my email and password ***** the new i pad and sync it to my existing account. Would the pads be separate from that point forward except for the shared aps. I clouds etc. would be separate etc

I WANT TO END UP WITH HER HAVING THE OLD IPAD AND I HAVE THE NEW WITH OUR CURRENT SEPARATE ACCOUNTS
Mac Support Specialist: John T. F., Mac Druid replied 2 years ago
Ok, so you each have one unique ID of your own that use only on your own devices... In that case, it may be best to reset the old iPad back to factory defaults and set it up under her Apple ID. On the OLD iPad; tap Settingstap Generaltap Resetthen tap “Erase all content and settings” When the device restarts, it will display the Setup Assistant. In the Setup Assistant whenever it asks for an Apple ID just use hers. Once you are finished, it will be ready for her use. John

I wanted bother of us to keep the data and be separate from this point on. Is that possible?
Customer reply replied 2 years ago
If she uses her id on my pad and has it synched to her I tunes wouldn't it become hers.
I would then synch the new I pad to my ipad and download the data to my new pad from my ipads?
Mac Support Specialist: John T. F., Mac Druid replied 2 years ago
That will be tricky in some cases. For example, any app that you've downloaded to the old iPad will forever be tied to your Apple ID rather than hers. Any time that one of those apps is updated, you will need to supply your Apple ID and password ***** than hers, etc... However, it is possible to do it as follows:On the old iPad, please do the following for any section of Settings where the incorrect ID (yours) is being used. If neither ID is listed, choose the option to sign in with an existing account and use the correct (your wife's) Apple ID and password. 1) Go to Settings > iCloud If incorrect account is listed, tap “Sign Out” or “Delete Account” and make sure the account is removed.Sign in with the correct Apple ID by choosing the option to sign in with an existing account. 2) Go to Settings > Mail, Contacts, Calendar Verify correct iCloud email is listed, if she uses it. 3) Go to Settings > Messages > Send & Receive. If incorrect account is listed, tap it and choose Sign OutSign in with the correct Apple ID by choosing the option to sign in with an existing account. 4) Go to Settings > Facetime If incorrect account is listed, tap it and choose Sign OutSign in with the correct Apple ID by choosing the option to sign in with an existing account. 5) Go to Settings > iTunes & App Store If incorrect account is listed, tap it and choose Sign OutSign in with the correct Apple ID by choosing the option to sign in with an existing account. 6) Go to Settings > Game Center If incorrect account is listed, tap it and choose Sign OutSign in with the correct Apple ID by choosing the option to sign in with an existing account. Once you have completed the above then the old iPad should be ready to go. John

What Customers are Saying:

Hi John, Thank you for your expertise and, more important, for your kindness because they make me, almost, look forward to my next computer problem. After the next problem comes, I'll be delighted to correspond again with you. I'm told that I excel at programing. But system administration has never been one of my talents. So it's great to have an expert to rely on when the computer decides to stump me. God bless, Bill
