Apple to refund $36 million for children's in-App purchases January 16, 2014

Apple has agreed to refund at least $36 million to US customers whose children made purchases from its online App Store without parental consent.

The US Federal Trade Commission (FTC) says Apple also agreed to modify its practice - which until now had allowed children to make purchases on an iPhone or iPad up to 15 minutes after a password was entered.
