"My sister has an Apple ID and she doesn't use any Apple product anymore. But she has purchased a number of movies with her Apple account previously. Now I want to transfer her iTunes purchases including movies bought or rented from her Apple account to mine. So is there any way to do it?"

With an Apple ID, we are able to purchase movies, TV shows, songs and audiobooks from iTunes Store. Let's take movies as an example, all movies bought or rented from iTunes Store are strictly protected by Apple's FairPlay DRM facility, so you are not able to share them via Internet, convert them to other formats, not even transfer them to another account. That said, you cannot transfer iTunes purchased or rented movies from one Apple account to another if you have various Apple IDs.

Luckily, we've already figured out the solution to transfer iTunes purchase to another account. If you are interested, then read on and find out more details of the solution.

Method 1. Taking over an Apple Account

Changing the account details of an Apple ID is one of the solution to enable the new owner to use their own email address, set up credit facilities, and authorize computers and devices, etc. Here is how to change the necessary Apple ID detail using your browser.

Step 1. Go to My Apple ID website.

Step 2. Select "Manage Your Apple ID" option on the right-hand side of the screen.

Step 3. Type in the username – the email address which was used to create the Apple ID.

Step 4. Enter the password and hit the "Sign In" button.
