[MUSIC] For all of you out there that are lucky enough to live in a home where multiple people using multiple Apple devices, your iPhone and iPads and Mac Books and iPod Touches. [MUSIC] Apple has made it really easy to sync these all up to a common iTunes account called family sharing. I'm going to show you how to set it up. First for this to work, you have to make sure all of your Apple devices that you want to share with are running the latest software. That means iOS eight for mobile and OSX mountain lion for your macs. Next, take the mobile device that's associated with the Apple ID and. Credit Card that will service the Master Account for the family. Then go to Settings > iCloud and tap the button for Se Up Family Sharing. You gonna go through a full-screen here that explain Family Sharing, verify your Credit Card information. And make sure that you understand as the family organizer, all purchases made on this family device are gonna go through your account. That's an important detail. So, don't go adding friends or deadbeat uncles to your family sharing list. Eventually, you find yourself on this family page where you can add up to five additional family members to share with. To invite someone, click add family member, and then type in their name or e-mail address to pull them up from your contacts. Once they accept the invitation, they'll gain immediate access to any music, movies, TV shows, books, or apps that you downloaded. And the same goes for you. If you click on the App store, or the iTunes store, and you click on purchase you can see a new list of all the things that they've bought before that you can download onto any of your devices. But what happens if a family member of yours turns out to be a real jerk who's running up your credit card with all kinds of iTunes and app purchases that you don't approve of. Well you can delete them from your list by going to iCloud tapping their name and removing them. So there you go. That's how to set up Apple's Family Sharing feature with your family. It's a great way to make the best use of iTunes content you already have.
