    Hi, I'm newbie to Apple Macbook pro.

    I'm confuse on the colour accuracy between iPhone6 and macbook pro retina color.
    I'm a photographer, i purchase mbp because of the colour accuracy for editing my photo. but after i export the photo from mbp to iPhone, it show different! so i'm confuse on this case, no sure is iPhone 6 color is accurate or macbook pro? i do google for a night, but that show no answer. looking advise ! million thanks !

    Since you have not calibrated your MacBook Pro screen, it's likely that neither your iPhone nor your computer is accurate. Since there's no way to calibrate an iPhone, you have to accept whatever color that device has. It is likely that other phones will render color differently.
    If you embed a color profile in your photos when you edit them, that will help the various devices render the color more accurately, but only to a point.

    You will need to calibrate both Mac and iPhone screen.
    Indeed you can also calibrate the iPhone screen - ColorTRUE is an app for that.
    The only caveat - iOS won't allow systemwide color profile to be installed, like OS X does. Hence the calibration will only be effective within the ColorTRUE app itself, nowhere else on iOS UI.
    The app will allow you to see your Photos and Camera Roll color-corrected.
