Apple to refund parents for purchases made by children

  • Apple settled a complaint from the FTC and has agreed to refund over $32.5M to customers, who claimed that their young kids made in-app purchases without their consent. 

    Apple users are aware that after using their password in the App Store for purchases, they can buy more apps for another 15 minutes without having to enter their passwords again. 

    The FTC blamed Apple for violating fair practices by not informing users about this window and then charging them for apps purchased by kids.
