Hello alcongemi,

Thank you for using Apple Support Communities. It's my understanding that you'd like to separate two iPhones that are using the same Apple ID. I'm happy to help.

First, use the steps in the link below to create a new Apple ID:
Create and start using an Apple ID

Once the new Apple ID has been created, use the steps in the following link to sign into Apple services with the new Apple ID:

Also, you might want to consider using Family Sharing. This is a great way for up to six family member to share iTunes, iBooks, and App Store purchases, an Apple Music family plan, and iCloud storage plans. Take a look at the information in the link below:

Have a great day!
