Question: i share an account with someone whose downloaded music is also on my phone. If I delete the music on MY iphone, will the same music be deleted on the other iphone?

My granddaughter shares my Apple account. Music she downloads to her iPhone 6 also loads onto my iPhone 6. If I delete the music on my phone, will it delete that music from her phone?

There is a much better approach to get your own music on your own iPhone, and the same for your granddaughter, regardless of her age.


You should immediately stop sharing an Apple ID. The person who gets the new Apple ID should do so as described here.

Family Sharing and Apple ID for your child - Apple Support


That person should also throughly cleanse their iOS devices:

Then you may institute Family Sharing if you wish as described in the first article.


From that point on, you may do as you wish with the music on your iPhone.
