Apple Offers Refunds for Unauthorized In-App Purchases

Posted: Updated:

Apple says iTunes users could be eligible for refunds for unauthorized in-app purchases made by children on their account.

Apple started emailing customers this week alerting them to the refunds to fulfill the company's recent $32.5 million settlement of a federal complaint.

"We've heard from some customers that it was too easy for their kids to make in-app purchases," Apple wrote. "As a result, we've improved controls for parents so they can better manage their children's purchases, or restrict them entirely. Additionally, we are offering refunds in certain cases."

The email asks parents to view their purchase history and if any charges were unauthorized, then provide the requested information in the Details section. Apple will then review the request and contact customers by email.

All refund requests must be submitted by April 15, 2015.
