If you have more than one Apple device in your house, you might be better off signing up for the Apple One family plan. With this subscription, you can access Apple TV+, Apple Music, iCloud storage, and more for a monthly fee. And if you have kids, they can use your subscription to certain services too. Here’s how to set it up.

start open the Settings app on your iPhone or iPad and tap “iTunes & App Store.” Then, tap your profile icon in the top right corner and select “Family Sharing.”

From there, tap “Set Up Family Sharing” and then choose “Continue.” You’ll need to confirm your payment method—if you’re already using Apple Pay, it will be the default option—and then decide whether or not to share your location with family members.

Once that’s done, you can invite family members via iMessage or by providing their email address. Once they accept the invite, they’ll have access to all of the features included in your Apple One subscription.

And that’s all there is to it! With Family Sharing set up, everyone in your household can enjoy Apple’s various services without having to pay for them separately.
