What do yo mean by manage?
This may help:
- Apps are locked to the account that purchased them.
- To update apps you have to sign into the account that purchased the apps. If you have apps that need updating purchased from more than one account you have to update them one at a time until the remaining apps were purchased from one account.
ALso note the 90 day time period for changing accounts. Tha effects the ability to redownload previous iTunes purchases.
The ID is used in the following locations and you have to change them.
Settings>Messages>Send and Receive
and Settings>iTunes and App store
You have to sign out of ID (for iCloud you delete the iCloud account from the iPod) and sign in with other ID.
If the iPod has iOS 7 then you have the enter the password for Apple ID presently sign in Settings>iCloud.
Also, a Restriction can be set (Settings>General>Restrictions) the prevents changing accounts
By manage I mean download songs to the music library on the iMac and sync to devices. I was hoping that I could open iTunes and long in as any apple ID I wished (either mine or my daughters) and see the specific library associated with that ID. What I think I have taken from what you replied is that my daughter will need to manage all her downloads from her device, under her apple ID. Any songs that she ever downloaded on MY apple ID can never be on her iPod if it is associated to any other Apple ID than the one that paid for and downloaded the original songs (my ID).
The only follow up is - if she plugs her iPod into our iMac how do I stop the automatic process that runs and turns her iPod Touch into just another device on my apple ID on my mac?? hope that makes sense and thanks for your help
You can create/change libraries in iTunes by:
You should go to iTunes>preferences>Devices and check the box that says Prevent iPods... from syncing automatically.
Also consider using the manual method of syncing to help avoid getting medi not wanted on the devices
