Question: Sharing an Apple account but ready to get my own.

Hi everyone!

I am currently sharing an Apple account with my mom. I am getting a new phone and would like to get my own account. What is the best way to go about this switch? I want all my stuff (pictures, apps, music, etc.) just not sure how to go about it all transferring, if possible. I’ve talked to my carrier and they said to ask here!

You can't transfer purchases between Apple IDs. Ask your mom to consider setting up Family sharing to allow you to share the purchases on her Apple ID. She can create a shared photo album to share your pictures with you.
