Apple sending out emails to settle in-app purchases complaints

Apple sending out emails to settle in-app purchases complaints

Getting charged for in-app purchases without you knowing it is very frustrating. Although in-app purchases can be great, getting charged for it accidentally is another story.

That's why Apple is announcing today that it has heard the woes of its users, particularly those who were charged hundreds if not thousands of dollars from in-app purchases. Apple is sending out email notifications to complainants to inform them that they can now seek compensation for their bills.

Following a class action lawsuit filed against Apple, the Cupertino-based company has agreed to settle the issue once for all. This applies to in-app purchases of game currency in certain "Qualified Apps" charged by minors to an iTunes account without the account holder’s knowledge or permission.

Qualified Apps include all apps in the game category with an age rating of 4+, 9+, or 12+. Those who are eligible for an iTunes Store Credit or a cash refund must have paid for Qualified Game Currency Charges that a minor charged to their iTunes account without their knowledge or permission. You can read the rest of Apple's In-App Purchase Litigation Settlement by hitting the source link below.
