Twenty-three million people are about to get a chunk of money from Apple after a 2011 class-action lawsuit against the tech giant.
Apple will refund millions of customers for its "unlawful exploitation" of children via in-app purchases, according to PCMag.com.
Apple was sued in April 2011 when a Pennsylvania man said his 9-year-old daughter made about $200 in in-app purchases while playing games like Zombie Café, Treasure Story and City Story.
Essentially, several apps and games contain in-game currency, which can be purchased with real money with the touch of a finger -- which is something Pennsylvania father Garen Meguerian, and many other parents around the country, were not aware of.
PCMag.com reports parents whose kids downloaded less than $30 worth of content will be reimbursed with a $5 iTunes gift card or the equivalent of their total Game Currency charges. Cash refunds will be given to consumers who no longer have an active iTunes account, or whose bill exceeded $30.
