Apple ID and Family Sharing

Your Apple ID is how you are able to purchase apps and books on your iPad.

Providence Day School strongly recommends that all students have their own Apple IDs linked to a Family Sharing account. Family Sharing will also make it possible for you to share apps between family members, pay for all your child’s purchases with one credit card, and approve their purchases from your device. Students under the age of 13 must be setup using Family Sharing.

Here are the instructions for setting up Family Sharing.
