iPad Pro’s new True Tone display adjusts to ambient light

Introduced for the newest iPad Pro – the 9.7-inch version – Apple has shown a new True Tone display. This is the first time such a technology has been delivered on a tablet, says Apple, and it’s going to change the way your eyes react to the tablet’s display. This technology uses the tablet’s light sensors to see ambient light and color temperature and adjusts the display to compensate. No more headaches.

In a very yellowy room – with your yellow lightbulbs – you’ll find the display becoming more warm. When you’re outdoors and the blue sky makes everything cooler, the iPad’s display is cooler.

This is the sort of technology we’ll expect to see in the iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus. For now, it’ll be appearing on this smaller iPad Pro. Not – you might remember – on the original iPad Pro. We’ll have to wait for the upgrade later this year.
