If you have a young child who you’d like to include in your Family Sharing group, they need their own Apple ID. Maybe you’d like to share apps with them, let them use to your Apple Music subscription, or bought a new HomePod Mini for their room for intercom use.

Stop me if you've heard this one before: if you add funds right now to your Apple ID, you'll get a 10% bonus. The deal is back, just a few months after Apple last offered it.

When you visit a new website or sign in to a new app or service, you're often prompted to create a new account, giving up personal information like your email address, requiring you to make a password you'll remember, and often having to go through an intrusive and frustrating process before you can even start using your new download. Keeping track of this info is a burden and putting that personal info in strangers' hands can leave you feeling unsafe. That's why Apple created Sign in with Apple. It's a new way to sign up or sign in to apps and websites using your Apple ID instead of having to create a new account. The intent by Apple is "to respect your privacy and keep you in control of your personal information."
So if you’ve seen this option on an app or website but weren’t quite sure about its workings, we’re here to help. Here’s how to use and manage Sign in with Apple.
