Apple, under the terms of a class action settlement, will pay $100 million to parents whose kids went on unauthorized in-app buying sprees. Parents who claim their kids ran up unauthorized charges of $30 or less will get $5 worth of iTunes Store credit or $5 cash (if they no longer have an iTunes account), according to the settlement's terms. Parents who claim unauthorized charges in excess of $30 must submit the date and amount of each purchase. All claims, regardless of amount, must be submitted through a special 'Apple In-App Purchase Litigation' website.
