How do I rejoin Family Sharing?

Answered by Jason Smith

To rejoin Family Sharing, follow these steps:

1. Open the Settings app on your device.
2. Tap on your Apple ID at the top of the screen.
3. Scroll down and select “Family Sharing.”
4. Tap on your name under the “Family” section.
5. On the next screen, you will see an option to “Stop Family Sharing.” Tap on it.
6. Confirm that you want to stop sharing and leave the family group.
7. Once you have left the family group, return to the Family Sharing menu.
8. Select “Add Member” to invite yourself back into the family group.
9. Choose how you want to share the invitation—via Messages, Mail, AirDrop, or In Person.
10. Send the invitation to yourself.
11. Accept the invitation by following the instructions provided in the message or email you received.
12. You will now be a member of the family group again.

After rejoining the family group, check if you can use Family Sharing’s Apple Music subscription by opening the Music app and accessing the “For You” section. If the subscription is not working, make sure you have accepted the invitation correctly and that your Apple Music settings are configured properly.

In some cases, it may take a little time for the changes to take effect, so if you still cannot access the Apple Music subscription, give it a few minutes and try again. If the issue persists, you can contact Apple Support for further assistance.

I hope this helps you rejoin Family Sharing successfully and enjoy the benefits of sharing Apple Music with your family!
