How to share movies, books, apps, and games with iTunes Family Members

iCloud is a much more powerful cloud than many users imagine. Not only is the Apple cloud capable of instantly synchronizing photos and documents between our devices, but thanks to the “In Family” feature, we will be able to share our virtual space, locate the different members of our family, share our Apple Music subscription, and even be able to download and enjoy the purchases of the different members of “In Family”.

You read well, thanks to iCloud we will be able to download on our iPhone, iPad or Mac everything that other members have purchased on iTunes, such as:

  • Music
  • Movies.
  • Books.
  • Applications and/or games.

A very interesting system not only to watch the movies or listen to the music of other members, but to download the applications or games of others.
