All in the space of 5 minutes. Even in a special use case, that is a broken system
There need only be one Apple ID login in this case: When the setup assistant asks us to log in! And that's it. The system should just populate all the apps for a certain time period. Whether that is 15 minutes or something else I don't care.
Same thing happens whenever a software update is done on a Mac.
