A step by step guide on creating a subscription that uses family sharing for iOS, iPadOS, MacOS, WatchOS or TVOS using Apple's App Store Connect.

Please note that once you turn on Family Sharing you cannot turn it off.

Step One: Access the Subscription

A screenshot of the App Store Connect Subscription Group page for a Subscription Group that we created in a tutorial linked above. Highlighted is the Reference Name of a subscription that we created. Select the reference name of the subscription that you wish to access the details of.

Navigate to the Subscription that you wish to enable family sharing on in App Store Connect.

If you have not yet created a subscription, follow the tutorial below before proceeding.

Step Two: Turn on Family Sharing

A screenshot of an App Store Connect Subscription page with a highlight on "Turn on" which can be found at the top of the page under "Family Sharing."

Click Turn On under Family Sharing.

Step Three: Confirm

A screenshot of the Confirm Family Sharing modal that appears in App Store Connect. It asks you to confirm using the button on the bottom right, whilst reminding you that if you turn on Family Sharing for a subscription you cannot turn it off. In other words, there is no going back after you press confirm.

Click Confirm.

Please note that once you turn on Family Sharing you cannot turn it off.

Once you press confirm to "Undo" the change, you would have to delete the subscription and create a new one to undo this change.
