How to get your child off an old Apple ID and onto Family Sharing's 'Ask to Buy'

So you want to enable Family Sharing's "Ask to Buy" to buy feature but your child is on an old Apple ID and you can't find a way to go back and change their birthday to make it work? You're not alone. And while there's no easy fix, there is a way to work around it. As long as you've got an open on your Family Sharing account, you can swap your child's old Apple ID to a new child ID, and get Ask to Buy working the way you want it to.

It's important to note that this process can't convert your child's existing Apple ID into a child ID. It creates a new Apple ID and transfers all their data across. That means they won't lose any backups or purchases, but there are still some downsides. For one, they'll have a new email address, which means a new ID for mail, iMessage, and FaceTime. (You can forward email and enable multiple addresses for iMessage and FaceTime.)

Troubleshoot iCloud Photo Library: How to sync images from your computer or iPhoto

Apple has long had trouble balancing its iCloud sync service with manual iTunes syncing, to no one's surprise. Sync is hard, and when you offer users multiple ways to put data on their devices, something's bound to get borked in the process. iCloud Photo Library is no exception—the service isn't on the Mac yet, which means that if you want to use it on your iOS devices, it'll effectively wall off your iPhoto library from your mobile lifestyle. But we've got a few tricks to get those iPhoto images back onto your iPhone or iPad.
