The new MacBook Pro is equipped with an XDR display with mini LED backlight and supports 10
100 million colors, but some workflows may require custom calibration.Every MacBook with Liquid Retina XDR display
Pro must go through the most advanced factory display calibration process on the assembly line to ensure the accuracy of the P3 wide color panel and a single backlight LED.
In addition, the factory calibration process enables complex built-in algorithms to accurately reproduce the various color spaces used in today’s media workflows, including sRGB, BT.601, BT.709, and even P3-ST.2084 (HDR).
The factory displays the calibration process so thatMacBookPro users can enjoy an excellent viewing experience after opening the box. If your workflow requires custom calibration, you can measure your monitor first, and then fine-tune the existing calibration data.
This process includes the use of a spectrometer and a set of QuickTime movie test patterns provided by Apple to evaluate the calibration of the display. These test modes can be downloaded from “Related Resources”> “Color Test Modes” on the AVFoundation page of Apple’s website. The complete instructions can be found in Apple’s supporting documents:
In “System Preferences”> “Display”, the user can fine-tune the calibration of the MacBook Pro’s display by providing the white point and brightness values measured by the spectroradiometer and the expected value of its target.
Apple’s support file also includes other tips for measuring and fine-tuning the calibration.
