Geekbench 4 for iOS goes free until April 10, now with added Metal
Popular cross-platform benchmarking tool, Geekbench, has added something iOS number chasers will be most pleased about. With the latest version, 4.1 if you're counting, Geekbench has added support for Metal, meaning you can now run a proper compute benchmark for the GPU in your iPhone or iPad.
To celebrate the launch, Geekbench 4 has gone free in the App Store, but only until April 10. So act fast if you want this bargain!

The update to Geekbench 4.1 is cross-platform, and the macOS version also has some important changes under the hood.
As a result of the changes it's recommended only Geekbench 4.1 scores are compared against each other to preserve accuracy. If you don't yet have the desktop version of Geekbench 4, now is the time to buy with a 20% discount on all licenses to celebrate the update to version 4.1. This, too, is only available until April 10 so you'll have to act fast again!

However, my credit card was not charged.
Was the charge explicitly for GeekBench 4? If yes, when you get your email bill notice, you can click on the included support link and let Apple that there was an error and you got charged.
IMO, claiming this is a rib off is not exactly correct and a bit unfair to the developer. Good luck.
If one person benchmarks his iPad, everyone has.
They are all the same.
