Recommended Posts

I have a iPad air2 and have given it to my wife can I delete my account and then add my wife's account without losing all the apps that have been installed.

Thanks for any help. Alan.

nope, apps are linked to the Apple ID account, not the device, removing your account would remove access to any apps..

(Note: Free (none paid) apps MAY still work, but otherwise, they will need removing/reinstalling..)

The apps wil still work. You just won’t be able to update them without entering the old credentials again.

 

Note that you can also “share” apps by signing the accounts in through the Family Sharing options. You can both be set with virtually the same access etc.
