    Hi, first ever post on here.

    In our house we have three iPhones (2x4 and 5), an iPad4 and a new ipad mini. - all on the same apple ID I have a photo stream that syncs my photos from the iphone5 to the iPad 4. We have just bought the ipad mini and would like to set up a separate photo stream that syncs photos from one of the iPhone4s to the new ipad mini.

    How can I get two photo streams that are independent of each other, as we we don't want the photos crossing over?

    Thanks for the help

    To the best of my knowledge, if you use Photo Stream all your photos will appear on all your devices that share the same Apple ID. I don't believe that there's any way to restrict which devices your photos go to.

    You could keep your Apple ID on all devices, but create a different iCloud account on the iPhone 5 and iPad mini. This way photo streams won't interfere with each other. You'll lose the ability to sync documents, ... between all devices.
    Your purchases (books, apps, music) would still be linked to the Apple ID.
