Apple Is Forced to Change 'No Refund' App Store Policy

According to the latest report from The Korea Herald, South Korea's Fair Trade Commission has ordered Apple and Google to change their "no refund" app store policies as they violate the rights of the users. Moreover, the South Korean officials say that the tech giants should inform the users about the changes in the app store policy immediately after these changes are applied.

Modifying the App Store terms of use in South Korea may become a first step to altering them worldwide. The guys from Cupertino have reportedly confirmed this rumor.

Under the current policy, Apple does not offer an automatic way to get refunds for apps. However, refunds have been made available on a case by case basis, as users are able to "Report a Problem" on their purchases to go through iTunes Support.

This is not the first time the Fair Trade Commission asks Apple to change the app store policy. Back in 2011, the company was forced to allow a 7-day refund period for its users.
