Hi and Welcome. My Name is ***** ***** I look forward to assisting you today with your question.

Yes, it is possible. On your Mac, go to Apple > System Preferences > iCloud and what is the account/email showing there ?

Also, on iPhone, go to Settings > your name at the top > iCloud and what ID is showing there ?

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
