Okay, so I noticed now that my touchbar after updating to 11.1 is more yellowish now. I figured out that now the touchbar gets true tone I guess. Anyone else experience this and is this supposed to be the case. If I turn off true tone for the display, once I touch the touchbar after that, it turns off true tone on the touchbar and goes back to how it was before 11.1. New feature maybe?

I don't have a MBP but I know I read TT was fixed on the Touch Bar in 11.1 so it now applies to that as well as the screen.

Can confirm. TouchBar does change its color with true tone settings, but you have to manually trigger the refresh by touch something. Maybe it's just a silent "bug fix"
