Father suing Apple after child racks up high app charges

April 18, 2011 12:00:00 AM PDT
Apple is being sued by an angry father in Pennsylvania after his child racked up hundreds of dollars in app charges.

The father is the lead plaintiff in a class-action suit against the tech giant.

He says his 9-year-old daughter spent up to $200 in unauthorized charges while playing free iPhone games.

Apple has recently changed its policy to require a password for purchases. However, some contend that new safeguard isn't enough.
