Problem is, they can't sue bitcoin.
Apple will fail.
EDIT: Okay, just read it and it isn't really very much to do with bitcoin, but they might pull a sopa and change it once they have the initial patent.

This is excellent news for bitcoin as it effectively creates an "Apple tax" on the competition in a critical market, namely the online purchase of goods and services by adolescents. By the way Apple will succeed here; however their invention has nothing to do with bitcoin. With bitcoin the parent can simply transfer a predetermined amount of Bitcoin to the child, which is no different from giving the child a cash allowance, effectively sidestepping the Apple patent. If on the other hand the parent wishes to use say a credit card then the "Apple tax" will have to be paid.

This is pay Apple or use bitcoin.

Concerned that blockchain bloat will lead to centralization? Storing less than 4 GB of data once required the budget of a superpower and a warehouse full of punched cards.
