Apple to Issue $32.5 Million in Refunds

Posted: Updated:

The minimum settlement will be $32.5 million.  Under the terms, the FTC says the company will also be required to change its billing practices to ensure it obtains explicit consent from consumers before charging them for items sold in mobile apps.

Apple offers many children's apps that allow users to incur charges within the apps. These charges can range from 99 cents to over $99. The complaint alleges that Apple did not inform account holders that entering their password would open a 15 minute window during which unlimited charges could be made.  It also states that Apple presented a password screen without explaining it would finalize any purchase.
