Apple to Refund $32.5m to Parents
Parents whose children made in-app purchases without their knowledge or consent will be refunded.
Apple will refund customers a staggering $32.5m after a settlement with the US Federal Trade Commission.
The refund agreement settles numerous complaints over purchases made by children, without their parents' consent.
From this, Apple will also be required to change its billing procedures to make sure customers have given consent before they are charged for purchases.
Apple said: "This settlement is a victory for consumers harmed by Apple's unfair billing, and a signal to the business community: whether you're doing business in the mobile arena or the mall down the street, fundamental consumer protections apply."
