Opinion: Apples account system is kind of bad..
In my house I own an iPhone and a MacBook Pro, my wife owns an iPad Pro and an iPhone. Both of us does freelance work from the MacBook and iPad respectively.
Of course we use our own Apple IDs for our devices.
To the problem. Yesterday I upgraded my os to Catalina and wanted to try out the Sidecar feature… But that’s of course not possible since both have to be logged in with the same Apple ID… Would be nice if it supported family sharing. Very cumbersome to log out and back in just for this.
Next issue: I want to play some iPad games and continue my progress from the MacBook or phone. DOESN’T WORK 🤡 unless I log out and back in with my ID..
I can only imagine how this problem would be much more of an issue in a family with older kids or if we owned an Apple TV (Netflix gracefully solves this issue with profiles). I’m not buying another iPad Pro just to occasionally use it as a screen and play some games on it before bed.
How come Apple still doesn’t allow easy swapping of Apple IDs, multiple accounts or simply have profiles on the devices.
Does anyone else have a similar issue? Did you since it somehow?
