Itunes consolidating two accounts

Apple has provided no official guidance on the issue, except to state that Apple IDs can not be consolidated at this time.

reader Robert emailed Apple CEO Tim Cook about the issue, and quickly received a phone call from an Apple executive relations employee.

Here are some helpful tips for households faced with managing multiple Apple devices so they can stay on top of their i Tunes purchases.

i Tunes accounts are limited to five authorized computers and ten i Tunes in the Cloud devices. The five authorized computers are capable of sharing their purchased i Tunes content with other devices.

Hopefully this will change in future i OS releases as more and more people forgo computers altogether in favor of an i Pad-only existence.

To access the account management features from within i Tunes, first click on the i Tunes Store button.

You can ‘sync’ to an unlimited number of unmanaged devices like i Pods or stream content to networked devices like the Apple TV using i Tunes’ Home Sharing feature.
