My husband and i both have ipads, i have the two he has the three. At the moment he uses my apple id. Is there a way of creating his own id without completely deleting mine as i still want to use my id on my ipad? Is it as simple as creating a new id on his ipad? Thanks

    It is as simple as creating a new ID on his iPad. That's all you have to do. That has nothing to with your ID. In fact, you cannot delete an Apple ID from iTunes, because all paid content is always tied to that ID.

     

    Now where there will be an issues is if he wants to update the apps that you bought with the shared ID he must use that ID to update those apps. That in and of itself is not a big deal, but if he creates a new ID and uses that to download content and then does back to the old ID in order to download past purchases - he will lock himself out of the his new ID for 90 days. You can read about that here.
