    Can I share only certain apps purchased from iTunes on my iPhone with family?
    I just opted to not share my iTunes Store App purchases with family. Can I go back in and choose to only share certain apps and purchases so family members can use the ones I want to share?

    Thanks for your help.

    I'm not sure about that but I was under the impression that it's either share all or not share. Perhaps someone else knows more about the sharing aspect than I do can answer. I did want to mention that since it's only my wife and I, we use the same Apple ID and password which allows any app or purchase to be shared. Apps purchased from the iTunes App Store can be installed on more than one iOS device.

    You can log into the persons device with your Apple ID, and install the app you want them to hove, that way. But then that would require you to log in each time an app needed to be updated. Not efficient, in my opinion.

    You may be able to "hide" the apps you don't want them to install?

    Please backup. Everything has a life cycle, unexpected and warning free. Nothing will last as long as you want it to.
