If you have used a new iPhone, iPad Pro or 2018 MacBook Pro, you may have encountered a new switch in your display settings. True Tone is supposed to make the color of the screen more natural and it works.
True Tone was first in the 2017 iPad Pro series, but Apple has since taken the feature to the iPhone, starting with the 2017 iPhone 8, iPhone 8 Plus and iPhone X. Since then, it released the 2018 iPad Pro and the 2018 MacBook Pro, both with built-in function. Whatever of the devices you use, True Tone is designed to take the ambient light levels and temperatures, and then adjust the color and intensity of the device display to match. Apple thinks it is possible to display the screen more naturally while preventing eye strain.
And you know what? It does a pretty good job.
What exactly is True Tone Doing?
As we mentioned earlier, Apple uses multi-channel sensors to monitor the ambient light and then adjust the screen to match. This means that when you change your life and the light changes, you will see that your iPhone, iPad Pro or MacBook Pro screen also changes. If you are in direct sunlight, True Tone will change the temperature of your monitor so that the colors become more natural without blowing them out. If you're in a room with white lights, True Tone will go to work to make sure everything doesn't look like laundry.
It is difficult to describe with words, but once you have used a device with True Tone enabled, you will never want to go back.
Are you going to use real tone?
As much as we think, True Tone is an excellent addition to the devices that support it, there are disadvantages. If you are a professional working with pictures and photographs, you probably want to deactivate True Tone so you can see your work in its unprotected state. It is impossible to do color work on a photo if your MacBook Pro or iPad Pro changes how the colors look on the device you are using. Thanks to disabling and then reactivating True Tone, just a simple push of a button is required.
