Case 2. Transfer Everything on the Same iPhone/iPad/Mac

If you have two Apple IDs for the same iPhone/iPad/Mac device, how do you transfer messages from one Apple ID to another and other files? There are three options available. Let's start with...

Set Up Family Sharing

Apple doesn't offer an official way to merge two Apple IDs. Apps and media bought with one ID are permanently tied to that account. If you wish to continue using downloaded or purchased services with your new Apple ID, consider setting up Family Sharing.

Step 1. On your iPhone/iPad/Mac, sign out of the previous Apple ID.

Step 2. Sign in with your new Apple ID.

Step 3. Go to Settings and tap your name.

Step 4. Choose Family Sharing, then tap Continue.


Step 5. Tap Add Family Member > Invite in Person or Invite via iMessage.


Step 6. Enter the old Apple ID and tap Next to send the family invitation.

Step 7. Sign in with your previous Apple ID on another iPhone/iPad/Mac to accept the invitation in the Family Sharing settings.

After the previously used Apple ID becomes a family member, you can share music, movies, TV shows, apps, books, subscriptions, and more with your new Apple ID on the same device.

Transfer Selected Data via

If you've turned on iCloud syncing on your iPhone/iPad/Mac, transferring contacts from one Apple ID to another is a breeze. Just make sure you have a computer with an internet connection.

Step 1. Go to on your computer and sign in with your former Apple account.

Step 2. Preview the files backed up in the iCloud and download or export the data you want to send to your computer.

Step 3. Sign out of the former Apple ID and sign in with your newly-created Apple ID.

Step 4. Upload or import the saved data to the new Apple ID.

Restore Backup from iTunes (Caution: Rewrite Data)

The previous approach can be overwhelming and involves a significant amount of manual effort. For a more efficient way to transfer everything at once, consider utilizing iTunes backups, if available. Keep in mind that restoring an iTunes backup to your iPhone or iPad will overwrite the existing data on your device.

Step 1. Install the latest version of iTunes on your Mac or PC.

Step 2. Connect your iPhone or iPad to the computer via a USB cable.

Step 3. Click the iPhone or iPad icon and go to the Summary tab.

Step 4. Click Restore Backup.
