Is Family Sharing with iTunes Music better than a single account?

Brian from Anchorage, AL

Episode 1328 (48:25)

Apple iTunes

Brian's family shares a single iTunes account and he wants to know the advantage of going with family sharing. Jason says he'll gain the advantages of using different settings for different accounts, including setting buying limits, ratings, etc. The downside is that he won't get to share the iCloud space. Additionally, in-app purchases aren't sharable. So if it isn't broke, Jason says don't fix it. He should stick with what he has.

Brian also wants suggestions for streaming classical music. Scott says that Tidal is a good service because it streams in lossless CD quality. Jason says that Kirk McElhearn from iTunes is a classical music expert. Search for him and Brian will find a ton of articles on where to get it and how.
