My wife just upgraded to an iPhone 5, we shared an apple id before, now set her up with a her own apple id.  Will home sharing allow her to access the music and apps we previously purchased on the shared apple id?  We both share the same pc at home.

iPhone 5, iOS 6.1.2

    That depends on what you have used her new ID for.


    If you've used it for iCloud she can now keep her mail, contacts etc private, but if you keep using the same ID as she has done previously for iTunes and homesharing, your music, apps etc can still be used by both of you.

    She basically wanted her own id.  But now we won;t be able to share music or apps that either of us download correct? I don't believe she utilized iCloud......would that be a better route....same apple id, but two different icloud accounts?  I thought the home sharing would help in some way.
