Apple settles lawsuit over apps aimed at kids


Parents frustrated that their kids racked up iTunes bills without their permission may be in luck. Apple is offering to pay up to many of those affected, reports “Gigaom” (

Under the terms of the settlement, Apple will offer a $5 iTunes credit to those who claim that a minor bought in-game items without their knowledge or permission. If the amount in question is more than $5, Apple will offer a credit for that amount. If the amount in question is over $30, an Apple user can claim a cash refund.

The proposed settlement comes after parents sued Apple in 2011 upon discovering that their minor children had racked up credit card charges in supposedly free games.
