Question: How to Family Share with Member of my Family in Different Countries? US, UK, India etc.

Hi,


I am the organiser and am currently in India and am using an India Visa CC.


Is it possible to add my other family members from different countries? US, UK, India , etc.


If it is possible, we want to switch the Organiser of Family Sharing to the US and be able to access content from the different countries and be able to share storage space etc./ music / apps / movies etc.


I lived in the US and have a US iCloud and now I am living in India and I have a separate iCloud A/C. it would be great if you introduce a global A/C or what is the alternative solution. Please add this feature. It's absurd to think that people don't travel / live in multiple countries today and this is a recurring problem. Please also make it easier to administer iCloud / merge accounts etc.


Thanks,

Ram.

It is unlikely Apple will change this. They do not have ultimate control over this policy since it is up to the media companies who in turn operate under all the various copyright laws of different countries.
