How To Set Up iCloud Family Sharing On iPhone 14 (iOS 16.4)

A feature added to iOS devices in 2014 called “family sharing” permits sharing apps, services, and any paid iCloud storage plans. Plans for cloud storage are available in three tiers: individual, family, and premier. You need an Apple ID and iOS 11 or later (iOS 16.4) to set up iCloud Family Sharing on your iPhone. Once Family Sharing is configured, up to six family members can share purchases from the App Store, iTunes Store, and Apple Books and access Apple Music and Apple TV+.

You shouldn’t be concerned about your privacy because it allows sharing of Apple purchases and cloud subscriptions but keeps your files, photos, and other items private. And you can set parental controls.

If you still have not activated the iCloud family-sharing feature, read this iChumz article to learn how to set up family-sharing on your iPhone 14 Pro or Max.
