Need help with Family Sharing?
Are your family address books, photos, text messages and such going to the wrong person’s device? Kids buying apps using your account when they have their own? You might need a Family Sharing Session with me! In this session, we bring all of your family Apple devices together to straighten out all accounts. Each individual will have their own iCloud/Apple ID account for their own pictures, backups, contacts, etc., and all the accounts will be linked together with Family Sharing. You will save money by sharing online storage billing, iTunes and App Store purchases. All devices will be logged into the correct Apple ID/iCloud account with Family Sharing and automated backups set up by the end of the session. Family Sharing also has several other optional features including, parental controls and device limitations, sharing calendars, a shared family photo album, and location sharing.
I recommend setting up 4 hours for this. Click here and book your Half Day Session today! If you would like help setting something up you can email my assistant at firstname.lastname@example.org and she will help you get on the books with me. I look forward to working with you and your family soon!
