    I'm noticing a big difference between my color calibrated screens and the 12.9 ipad pro. Anyone know of any solutions to this? I use Xrite and a cintiq 27". Ipad is a nice way to show clients work, but i need the colors to be perfect. Thanks!

    i found, back in the good old days of Apple engineering (where stuff wasn't messed about with) my ipad2 has a wonderful display. it demonstrated my imagery perfectly to clients. i use a lot of whites and pale shades in my work and found the ipad2's display as close to perfect for me as possible. the gamut of shading it displayed was lovely.
    i would then manually match up my desk top monitors to match this ipad as closely as possible. and i usually got a damn good match.

    these days the Pro's screen, beautiful as it is, is a million miles away from the clean crispness (colour temperature wise) as my trusty old ipad2 :(
    the Pro's screen is 'warmer' than i'd like to be honest. not really noticeably or horribly so in general, but noticeable when trying to portray palettes of white shades to a client.

    whether or not the new true tone or night shift modes allow you to set a manual permanent shade i do not know.
    or maybe there are apps out there that allow you to colour tint your display?

    It's a great screen, but I'm just noticing a big difference between the pro and my color calibrated screen.

    I'm surprised there is no system wide option on such a nice device. Hopefully, it comes in the near future.

    Sounds like the kind of thing that would require jailbreaking.

    You don't think Apple would support that in the future on a device that's getting better and better for productivity?

    Those are usually deep calibration settings in displays. Which are the kinds of things Apple traditionally locks away from the user. I don't make predictions about what they'll do because then I can't be wrong. I'd love to see it though.
