(AP) - Apple has agreed to give more than 100 million dollars in iTunes store credits to settle a lawsuit alleging that Apple improperly charged kids for playing games on their mobile apps.
The federal case centers on allegations that Apple didn't create adequate parental controls to prevent children from buying extra features while playing free games in 2010 and 2011.
Under the proposed settlement, Apple has agreed to provide a $5 dollar iTunes store credit to as many as 23 million affected customers.
The settlement requires court approval. A judge will hear the settlement on March 1st.
