299 – Merging 2 Apple ID’s sort of – With Guest Guy Serle, Jeff Gamet, and Ben Roethig

The latest In Touch With iOS with Dave is joined by guest Guy Serle, Jeff Gamet, and Ben Roethig. Dave decided to finally “merge his 2 Apple ID’s. Well sort of. The issue is paid content like apps, movies, books, cannot be moved to the new Apple ID. This is where Family sharing gets involved. The latest beta has still not been released. But more importantly install iOS 17.4.1 for security fixes. WWDC 24 was announced. We talk about MacStock 8 and more.
