Apple offers compensation for kids’ in-app purchases

Apple has proposed paying compensation to US parents whose children made in-app purchases without their permission. The iPod-maker had been sued over allegations it had failed to “adequately” publicise that child-targeted games in its App Store included the facility. A judge will consider the proposal on 1 March. Apple acknowledged it would need to tell more than 23 million iTunes account holders they might qualify. Affected users would receive an email offering at least $5 (£3.20) in credit if they confirmed a minor had charged their account without permission, and that they had not already had the fee deleted after making a complaint.
