    The iMac 5K is calibrated from the factory with a similar instrument to the Konica Minolta CS-2000 Spectroradiometer, which is a $7,000 unit that needs routine calibration itself in a controlled environment itself.

    Though prolific advertising and numerous forum posts will tell you otherwise, a $169 Colormunki photometer that's been sitting on a shelf in various temperatures for lord knows how long uncalibrated, will not give you more accurate results than that from the factory even years later. This is without even beginning to consider user error involved in simply dangling the unit on your screen with a counter weight on the other side of the cord.

    But of course everyone will chime in that they wouldn't dare look at their screen without using their Colormunki/Spyder/Xrite but whatever. Or that they wouldn't dream of looking at photos on their iPhone XS MAX, even though the OLED is incredibly accurate.

    You certainly wrote "powermac using Mojave" by mistake, isn'it so?
    Powermacs cannot possibly run any modern Mac OS.

    All panels drift. That’s why Eizo CG monitors, the worlds leading maker of colour accurate monitors have built in calibrators.

    Unless you measure the screen you are relying on your eyes to tell you it’s accurate. As your eyes will get used to a faulty colour shift, most people won’t see it.
    That’s why you calibrate your screen regularly. The calibration that’s done before is obviously better, but a year down the line that’s not relevant anymore.
    Two identical machines, running for the same time will not both drift at the same rate.
    That’s why people use calibrators.
    Not sure why you mention the iPhone CS max screen colour as the OP is using a Mac book pro! But have a quick look on any section on here about people complaining about yellow or blue displays!
    That’s why calibrating them will always be the answer, as opposed to taking them back to Apple and keep swapping them until you get a colour temperature that you like.
