    Am I crazy or does the screen seem better after the update? I wonder if they tweaked the default gamma profile/screen display calibration profile.

    I know they supposedly increased peak brightness last patch but this feels different.

    Mine is definitely brighter, which probably makes the eye perceive the colors as being “better“. Whatever tweaks Apple might have made to the gamma/screen calibration profile, it still doesn’t look as good as a P3 wide color display, something readily apparent when comparing to the screen on my 2018 iPad Pro.

    I am still on 10.14.4 and after restarting my laptop (haven't shut down in weeks) I can report the screen is noticeably brighter, an increase in brightness (at 100%) that looks to be as accurate as Apple's specification bump from 300 to 400 nits in the update. It certainly does seem 33% brighter. The color also looks richer and more contrasting, easier on the eyes. I am not sure how to quantify this change.

    Very curious and happy to see this, albeit late to the party!
