I have on my Apple ID account an ipad(A), iPhone(A), iPod Nano, MacBook Pro. I'm going to add to it another iPad(B), and an iPhone(B).
The iPad and iPhone (B) will be on a separate iTunes, but will all share one AppleID.

Will there be any conflicts? I don't want do download one thing on (B) and have it appears on (A).

So should I do things differently? what do you advice me?

Thanks

    Downloading to multiple devices is controlled by Settings > iTunes & App Stores > Automatic Downloads on each device.

     

    You can have up to 10 devices on one Apple ID.

    If you have iCloud working on all of them, then if you buy something on one device it will apear on all your other devices.

    No, it won't unless you specify that you want that to happen.

    Aside from what is explained above about automatic downloads, I assume that you must already know that you can set your sync preferences for each device as exactly as you want them to be .... You do not have to sync the same content to each device just because you are using multiple devices with one Apple ID.

     

    If you set the Automatic downloads to "Off" on each device, as Jim described, you should have no worries at all.
