    Just a little FYI.......many were saying that true tone will affect photo editing. Well to my surprise when I open the photo app, the screen goes back to a bluer tint until you exit.......very very nice touch.

    Yes, I'm surprised that most reviewers haven't mentioned that. They say stuff like 'you'll need to turn it off when you want to edit photos' as if you'd always need to toggle it manually.

    Probably only does that with the native Photos app but if you use Snapseed, Pixelmator or Instagram to edit it stays on.

    Then I strongly believe those popular editing apps will be updated to also disable the True-Tone Display feature when editing.

    When/if Apple allows them to access the True Tone features.

    we should all offer feedback to apple to create color calibration. ipad pro color is way off compared to my calibrated screen. now that RAW editing (albeit a little sluggish) is possible on the ipad pro, this is a much needed feature.

    they are touchy about that. One could say devs can find a way. This is usually when apple pulls the app from the store at some point. Find a bypass on the code/api calls, they don't like it, they pull it. Apple fair here though...they do the same with OS X. Thing is with OS X...when pulled from store you can get it from the vendor.

    Are there any published reports confirming this, because I'm not seeing it. I have a number of photos in the Photos app taken with several different cameras, including an iPhone 5S, and I can definitely see a difference in the whites in every photo when I switch True Tone on and off.

    Confirmation of this from Apple or another source would be good to know.

    If you open Photos and then scroll left (four fingers) say to Safari, you will see the difference. Very clear, and a nice touch by Apple.

    Yes, That's what was posted above. But my question was if there was any third party confirmation of this.

    Not that I don't trust you ............ Well, I'll be honest, I don't trust you... :). Any confirmation of this would be helpful.

    Well using your eyeballs might be enough confirmation ;)

    Others commenting besides you are also seeing it.

    I'm sure with their experience Apple knew they would be criticised if the screen went far below 5500k during photo viewing. What would be cool in the future is if pixels changed colour individually, so that regions of pixels displaying images stay between 5500-6500k while the rest of the screen became warmer. Even when the images are being moved around.

    It most definitely turns off. Want proof?

    Just take a screenshot right now of this page you are viewing. Now, go to Photos and look at the screenshot you just took. You'll see the difference right away. App switch between Photos and Safari and you'll see True Tone kick on and off as you switch between them.

    Thank you, I see it now. I think my attempt at doing a manual on/off in the Photos app was tricking my eye.

    Still, it would be interesting to find out if anyone else is noticing this. I've checked several photo sites I follow and have seen no mention of this.

    Yeah, I think it depends on the ambient light when you check it too. For example, if you turn off True Tone while in a day daylight temperature room, it may already be on the blue-ish side so may not notice much difference. But in a warm lit room, it will be more noticeable.
