Can You Use The Same Apple ID On Two Devices

So you bought an iPhone and an iPad, and you’re happy to see the same ID working on both devices. So far so good, right? Well, you might want to know that your Apple ID can be used on another iOS device right away, but if you’ve just acquired another device and you’ve not shared the same Apple ID, then you’ll have to wait until you’ve linked your devices again before you can use the same Apple ID on another iOS device. For example, if you have an iPhone, an iPad, and an iPod, and you bought those devices from the same Apple store, then you can use the same Apple ID on all devices. If you have another iPhone, iPad, iPod, and iPad, and you bought those devices from different sources, then the only way for you to use the same Apple ID on those devices is if all of them have the same Apple ID, which is not a good idea if you ask us. So here are a few ways that you can use your same Apple ID on two different devices.

Can You Use the Same Apple ID on Two Devices?

No, you can only use the same Apple ID on one device at a time. If you want to be able to use your Apple ID on multiple devices, you need to set up different IDs for each device.

What Is Apple Id?

Apple ID is a unique identifier used by Apple to help you identify your devices, make purchases, and more.

 How To Create Apple Id:

  1. Go to the Apple ID page at account.apple.com/id/ Create a new Apple ID if you don’t already have one. If you already have an Apple ID, then go to the My Account page and select Redeem on the left-hand side menu and enter your existing Apple ID password in order to activate it.
  2. On the next screen enter your name, email address, password (make sure you’re using a strong password), country, and phone number, and answer this question: What is your purpose for creating this Apple ID? (iCloud will send all of your data through iCloud so it’s very important that you choose “Personal” here).
  3. Click Next
  4. Enter your first and last name, country, state or province, zip code or postal code, phone number, and birthdate (mm/dd/yy), and answer this question: What is your birth date?
  5. If you want to use your existing Apple ID on another device, then click the “Link this Apple ID to other devices” checkbox and enter your existing Apple ID password. You will then be prompted to enter your new password when you use this account on other devices.
  6. Click Next
  7. Enter a name for the new Apple ID and click Next
  8. Type a password for the new Apple ID and click Next
  9. Click Create Account
  10. You will be prompted to enter the verification code sent to you via email (you can also click “Get Verification Code” in the upper right-hand corner of your screen if you’ve already received it). Enter it in the appropriate box and then click Verify
  11. When you’re finished, you can close out of Settings in order to continue using iCloud settings in your device settings menu (Settings > iCloud). From here on out, all of your data will be sent through iCloud so it’s very important that you choose “Personal” when signing up for an Apple ID.

How To Manage Your Apple ID?

  • Go to Settings > iCloud > Apple ID.
  • Enter your Apple ID and password.
  • Tap Sign Out at the bottom of the screen.
  • Go to Settings > General > Reset .
  • Enter your Apple ID and password again, and tap Sign In.
  • If you don’t want to use the same Apple ID on multiple devices, then you can create a new Apple ID for each device that you want to use it on, and then link them together using iCloud settings in your device settings menu (Settings > iCloud).
  • If you want to use the same Apple ID on multiple devices, then you can create a new Apple ID for each device that you want to use it on, and then link them together using iCloud settings in your device settings menu (Settings > iCloud). For example: if your iPhone has an iPhone 4S and iPhone 5S and iPad 2 and iPad 3 with an iPod Touch 4G, then those devices will have different IDs because they are all different models of iPhones/iPads/iPod Touches/iPads, etc., but they will all have the same Apple ID because they’re all linked together through iCloud settings in their respective device settings menus (Settings > iCloud).
  • You can also create a new Apple ID for each device that you want to use it on and then link them together using iCloud settings in your device settings menu (Settings > iCloud). For example: if your iPhone has an iPhone 4S and iPhone 5S with an iPad 2 or an iPad 3 with an iPod Touch 4G, then those devices will have different IDs because they are all different models of iPhones/iPads/iPod Touches/iPads, etc., but they will all have the same Apple ID because they’re all linked together through iCloud settings in their respective device settings menus (Settings > iCloud). For example: if your iPhone has an iPhone 4S with an iPhone 5S and an iPad 2 with an iPad 3 with an iPod Touch 4G, then those devices will have different IDs because they are all different models of iPhones/iPads/iPod Touches/iPads, etc., but they will all have the same Apple ID because they’re all linked together through iCloud settings in their respective device settings menus (Settings > iCloud).
  • If you want to use the same Apple ID on multiple devices, then you can create a new Apple ID for each device that you want to use it on, and then link them together using iCloud settings in your device settings menu (Settings > iCloud). For example: if your iPhone has an iPhone 4S with an iPhone 5S and iPad 2 and an iPad 3 with an iPod Touch 4G, then those devices will have different IDs because they are all different models of iPhones/iPads/iPod Touches/iPads, etc., but they will all have the same Apple ID because they’re all linked together through iCloud settings in their respective device settings menus (Settings > iCloud).

Disadvantages Of Using The Same Apple Id On Two Phones:

  1. If you have two devices with the same Apple ID and they both have the same iCloud settings, then if you set up a new device with that Apple ID, then those two devices will be linked together. For example: if your iPhone has an iPhone 4S with an iPhone 5S with an iPad 2 and an iPad 3 with an iPod Touch 4G, then those devices will have different IDs because they are all different models of iPhones/iPads/iPod Touches/iPads, etc., but they will all have the same Apple ID because they’re all linked together through iCloud settings in their respective device settings menus (Settings > iCloud). For example: if your iPhone has an iPhone 4S with an iPhone 5S and iPad 2 and iPad 3 with an iPod Touch 4G, then those devices will have different IDs because they are all different models of iPhones/iPads/iPod Touches/iPads, etc., but they will all have the same Apple ID because they’re all linked together through iCloud settings in their respective device settings menus (Settings > iCloud).
  2. If you want to use the same Apple ID on multiple devices, then you can create a new Apple ID for each device that you want to use it on, and then link them together using iCloud settings in your device settings menu (Settings > iCloud). For example: if your iPhone has an iPhone 4S with an iPhone 5S and iPad 2 and iPad 3 with an iPod Touch 4G, then those devices will have different IDs because they are all different models of iPhones/iPads/iPod Touches/iPads, etc., but they will all have the same Apple ID because they’re all linked together through iCloud settings in their respective device settings menus (Settings > iCloud). For example: if your iPhone has an iPhone 4S with an iPhone 5S and iPad 2 and iPad 3 with an iPod Touch 4G, then those devices will have different IDs because they are all different models of iPhones/iPads/iPod Touches/iPads, etc., but they will all have the same Apple ID because they’re all linked together through iCloud settings in their respective device settings menus (Settings > iCloud).
  3. If you want to use the same Apple ID on multiple devices that do not have a common iCloud setting, then you can create a new Apple ID for each device that you want to use it on, and then link them together using a shared iTunes library. For example: if your iPhone has an iPhone 4S with an iPhone 5S and an iPad 2 and iPad 3 with an iPod Touch 4G, then those devices will have different IDs because they are all different models of iPhones/iPads/iPod Touches/iPads, etc., but they will all have the same Apple ID because they’re all linked together through iTunes library sharing. For example: if your iPhone has an iPhone 4S and iPhone 5S and iPad 2 and iPad 3 with an iPod Touch 4G, then those devices will have different IDs because they are all different models of iPhones/iPads/iPod Touches/iPads, etc., but they will all have the same Apple ID because they’re all linked together through iTunes library sharing.
