Apple Settles In-App Purchase Lawsuit, Offers iTunes Credits and Refunds to Parents
Apple has settled a lawsuit brought in 2011 after children ran up hundreds of dollars in spending on in-app purchases in freemium games.
The company will give iTunes credits to parents who claim their minor bought in-app items without permission and the option of cash refunds for claims over $30.
Apple will send email notices to the 23 million iTunes account holders who are affected by the settlement. The full settlement document is available on Scribd.
The company began requiring passwords for in-app purchases in iOS 4.3, soon after concerns over unauthorized purchases came to light. In-app purchases can now also be shut off entirely.
