Yes, you can. People can use the same iCloud account on up to 10 devices. However, when using the same Apple ID on two iPhones, you should do it without Mirroring.
Here are some reasons why you should avoid Mirroring when using 2 iPhones with the same Apple ID:
So, while using the same iCloud on two iPhones, you should practice the separation and turn off the syncing feature.
After you have successfully signed on to 2 iPhones with the same Apple ID, turn off the syncing option to prevent mirroring. For this:
By following the above steps, you can avoid mirroring and there will be no conflict of data between the two iPhones. If you are intending to use the same Apple ID on more than two devices, just follow the process on all the devices.
As mentioned, one of the biggest problems with using the 2 iPhones with the same Apple ID is the personal data exchanged. And to get rid of this, you can choose to unsync the 2 iPhones with the same Apple ID. There are two methods to separate two iPhones on the same iCloud account:
Here’s how to separate two iPhones on the same iCloud account using the iPhone Settings:
Step 1: Open the Settings on the iPhone (from the other device).
Step 2: Tap on your Profile to open the Apple ID page.
Step 3: From the new page, select the iPhone you want to remove, then tap on Remove to unlink the iPhone with the same Apple ID.
You may be prompted to enter the password, simply use the password associated with the Apple ID or iCloud account.
This will initiate the process and remove the Apple ID or iCloud account from the other device. You can sign in via new Apple ID on the other iPhone after removing the previous one.
Here’s how to separate two iPhones on the same iCloud account using iTunes (on Mac or Windows):
Step 1: Open the iTunes app on your Mac or Windows device.
Step 2: Navigate to iTunes in the Cloud tab and click on the Manage devices option.
Step 3: Choose the iPhone from which you want to remove the Apple ID and confirm the removal.
The process remains similar on both Windows or Mac devices. Once you confirm the removal, the Apple ID from the selected iPhone will be removed.
Most users use one Apple ID on two iPhones because they want to share the files with their spouse or other family members. And if that is the case, you can use these alternative methods and seamlessly share the files between two Apple iPhones.
Apple includes a native feature to form family groups and invite other members to join the group, so all of them can share data with each other conveniently.
Here’s how to set up Family Sharing and avoid using 2 iPhones with the same Apple ID:
You can also join someone else’s group. Moreover, you can also turn on the Family Sharing option via Mac and seamlessly share between iPhone and Mac (of yours and other family members).
Without sharing the same Apple ID with your loved ones, you can select some of the info that you stored on your iCloud and send it to them, even when they are using an Android phone.
MobileTrans is the ultimate sharing tool that allows you to export different types of your iCloud data to any mobile device and it does not affect the existing data on the phones. Plus, you can also transfer, backup, and restore phone data and WhatsApp data the way you want.

WA Deleted Messages App is designed to manage your WhatsApp better. It lets you log in to multiple WhatsApp accounts on the same device. Thus you can separate personal and business communication: If you have separate personal and business WhatsApp accounts, logging in to both on the same device can make it easier to keep your conversations organized and separate. You can also manage multiple phone numbers: Some people may have multiple phone numbers for different purposes, such as one for work and one for personal use. You can manage both numbers in one place by logging in to both accounts on the same device. Download it to explore more features.
Apple ID directly affects Appstore purchases, Apple Music, iCloud, iMessage, Facetime, Apple Books, and other features on the iPhone. So, it is more like a one-device-one-ID affair.
And it is best if you avoid using the 2 iPhones with the same Apple ID. All the data will be mutually shared and the other person can even lock you out of your own device (remotely). Yes, turning off the syncing feature is one way to go. However, the best practice is to use the alternative methods mentioned in this guide, i.e., Family Sharing or MobileTrans to share the data.
