How do I separate two iphones with the same Apple ID?
Short answer is you can’t have both. By sharing an Apple ID, you are the same person using 2 different devices. Your phones are behaving as designed. If you don’t want to create a new Apple ID, what you can do on the phones will be limited.
If you use all the same information, same Apple ID and don’t use the cloud, you will have all of each other’s information on both phones. The phones will mirror any information synced with Apple ID. You can use your phone number to use FaceTime on the iPhone. IMessage is also the texting application.
It did change with IOS 12. While many people have shared Apple ID for years with no problems, Apple now combines telephone numbers that are logged into the same Apple ID on the backend. This effectively no longer lets people get by with sharing an Apple ID since it creates havoc on their phones.
