Migrate iCloud storage to new account

  wanstronian 08:30 31 Jan 2020

When my daughter first got her hand-me-down iPhone, I set up an iCloud account under my email address, as she didn't have one.

Now I need that space back, to use for my own device. I don't want to share iCloud as she fills it up with TikTok videos.

She now has her own email address - how can I move all her stuff to her own iCloud and reclaim my own for myself?

Have you tried reseting the phone?

You could using a computer simply download the data from your iCloud account and then upload it to hers.

Otherwise there are several programmes that manage such a transfer, I have not used any so cannot make any recommendation.

With the help of multcloud you can Transfer and Sync Files between Different Cloud Drives. This will ensure your DATA is stored safely.
