I have 5 members in my family; myself, my wife, and 3 kids. I made a “Family Apple ID” and use that for the Apple TVs, our Mac Studio, and the iPad that’s attached to the fridge and displays a calendar and security cameras.
The issue I’m having is that this Family ID is that I can’t see the purchases from other members of the family and it’s not showing that I’m part of iCloud+ but I can see what this Family ID has purchased. All of my sharing options are on for all the accounts and I can share purchases between the other accounts.
Any ideas what the problem could be?
P.S. I like torturing my family so my devices and the family devices are on the developer beta.
Betas, by definition, are ‘not ready for prime time’ programs. Some professionals don’t even install the latest macOS for months after a new version is released. This may not be your problem but you can never be sure.
I don’t run betas on production devices. In fact I don’t purchase a new iPhone for a month or two after the new ones ship.
I understand that. Luckily none of my machines are “production” machines and I’ve never had any real issues with betas. I just really like having the latest and greatest when it comes to Apple software. If this is a beta issue it’s just more of an annoyance than anything for me.
I had the same issue with MacOS, where I couldn’t see other family members (including our historic central purchasing account) Mac app win the App Store. It was certainly a MacOS 14 Sonoma issue and I could not find a work around.
I also had a few other issues along the way, with photos not working properly, so I decided to move back to Ventura (ie fresh install) on the single machine that I had updated.
