Over­come an omis­sion from Fam­ily Shar­ing

1 Cre­ate a new Ap­ple ID

In the In­ter­net Ac­counts pref­er­ences pane, click the iCloud logo then Cre­ate Ap­ple ID to make a sec­ondary ac­count. Fol­low the in­struc­tions to use an ex­ist­ing email ad­dress or make an iCloud.com one for your Ap­ple ID. Write down its de­tails.

2 Share its con­tacts

With the ac­count cre­ated, se­lect it on the left. En­able the ser­vices you want to share; for this tu­to­rial, you only need to put a check mark next to Con­tacts. You might do so for other items if you don’t want to set up Fam­ily Shar­ing.

3 Make it the de­fault

When you se­lect the new ac­count in Con­tacts, it’ll be empty. Copy cards from your main ac­count to it, then delete the orig­i­nals to avoid con­fu­sion. If you share most con­tacts, make the new ac­count the de­fault in the app’s Gen­eral pref­er­ences.
