Can my partner and I have more than one apple id on our shared ipad so we can both sync via icloud from individual i mac user accounts and individual i phones?

    What exactly are you struggling with?


    Did you add the second iCloud account in Settings > Mail, Contacts, Calendars on the iPad?


    Did it not work?


    As the support article I linked to confirms, multiple iCloud accounts can be added to a single iPad as 'secondary' accounts, however, certain iCloud features (Bookmarks, Photo Stream, Documents in the Cloud, Backup, and Find My iPad) will only work with the Primary account.


    If all you want to do is have 2 sets of contacts, calendars and email, then it'll work fine.
