Apple Family Sharing is a useful feature that allows you to share access to Apple content and settings with up to five other family members (not including yourself). When Family Sharing is turned on, you can share access to an iCloud storage account or share music, TVs, and other media. Each member will retain their unique Apple ID.
Family Sharing also allows you to add a payment method your children can use for their purchases with purchase sharing, allowing them to buy Christmas gifts for themselves. Furthermore, it allows family members to share their location with each other when they go out for safety reasons, and you can also use it to manage parental controls and restrict access to harmful content.
