    Question Multiple iPad Users
    Does anybody know if Apple intends to allow multiple logins for iPads in the future?
    My wife recently purchased an iPad Mini and she said she's happy to share it but without a separate login that doesn't really work. Obviously I can't sync it with my contacts, music, games or emails and although there are ways to individually access these apps a separate login window (just like a laptop) would be much more convenient.
    I used to be conceited but now I'm perfect.

    Hi Rod - I'm assuming that you are asking whether an iPad will allow the setup of multiple users w/ their own sign-in passwords and personal 'spaces' on the device - correct? Well, don't hold your breath - you need a 'real' computer at the moment to accomplish that goal, BUT maybe in the near future - don't know? NOW, I have an iPad 2 and it serves an important niche in our computer life.

    I suspect Apple will address this at some point, but I'd lay serious money on a bet that they will address it NOT by adding accounts to the iPad but by enabling individual apps to have multiple accounts if the devs want to do that.

    The "official" solution to the problem of multiple accounts -- and the one that worked out GREAT for me and my wife -- was to buy a second device.

    And that is the exact reason why Apple is in no rush to address this shortcoming...
