Anyone know if Apple made any changes to the screens of the Xs and Xs Max over the X from last year? Are they brighter?

Can anyone test the output brightness in Nits like TVs are tested. We may have a Brightness gate in the making I have officially coined a phrase.

iPhone XsMAX not delivering promised brightness to customers. Let’s take screenshots of the Apple website before they delete any mention of Brightness.

Same luminance specs according to Apple. Reviews concur.

Brightness gate. Really?
I keep my Max at about 35%. More than bright enough.
People running their screens more than 50% are just wasting their battery time.
I run all my iOS devices ate about 35%, again, plenty bright. Turned up higher than that and they’re too bright.

I’ve read and heard many people who manipulate photos claim you have to turn your brightness way up to edit properly. That’s wrong, (and again, battery draining) if you know your equipment and know the photo.

Short form, XS Max with no brightness problems. And while we’re at it, no stuttering problems either.
