Cheating kids will cost Apple more than $ 100 million March 4, 2013

According to the authoritative resource Reuters, the company Apple has agreed to amicably settle the consumer class action, the children have accidentally downloaded paid applications from the store Apple.

In Cupertino agreed to provide each affected customer credit in the iTunes store in the amount of $ 5. According to preliminary data, the number of affected users is 23 million. This means that the bank account Apple will soon “lose weight” by more than $ 100 million. The source notes that the amount could change. Those who claim to compensation in the amount of $ 30 or more, will be able to choose between the loan and the return of funds.

Recall that the story began in 2011, when the five victims of parents filed a lawsuit against Apple. According to them, the children have been misled and they inadvertently made the purchase through the fault of Apple. The suit also claims that “Apple has not been able to lucidly explain what child-oriented third-party games are available for free.”

Before the agreement will enter into force, the court will have to approve.
