Apple looking to bring multiple accounts for iPad users
iPad users have long complained that they're unable to have separate accounts for other users in the house. Apple has suggested it is working on a fix that may arrive with iOS 6
Apple is actively investigating the possibility of allowing multiple user accounts for iPad users, a company developer has revealed.
The iPad has traditionally been a one-per-user device in terms of iTunes accounts, apps, email and more, but the company is now looking to respond to fan and developer demands to have more than one log-in per iPad.
In an emailed reply to a developer from a member Apple's Worldwide Developer Relations group, purportedly says the issue is known to the company and a solution could be in the works.
"After further investigation it has been determined that this is a known issue, which is currently being investigated by engineering," the email reads.
Allowing more than one log-in would give each user their own set of applications as well as content from iTunes. Users could also log-in to their own Facebook and email accounts without the risk of snooping from other members of the household.
The response will also lead to speculation that Apple plans to introduce such a feature at WWDC on June 11 when the company is widely expected to launch iOS 6 for iPhone, iPad and iPod touch.
