Ever Hear Of App Amnesty? You Might Need It Some Day

Posted: Updated:

Did your kid rack up a big bill buying upgrades in a game? Apple is offering some app amnesty. You can request a refund for "unauthorized" in-app purchases made by a minor on your account.

You'll need a receipt, either from your e-mail or purchase history in itunes.  Then go to apple's support page, and e-mail your request and receipts. Type "refund for in-app purchases made by a minor" in the details section. You'll get an email on the status of your request.  

To avoid being in this situation in the first place, you can also change your settings to restrict or disable in-app purchases.
