Use True Tone on your Mac

True Tone technology makes the images on your Retina display and Touch Bar appear more natural.

The True Tone technology in Mac computers uses advanced multichannel sensors to adjust the color and intensity of your display and Touch Bar to match the ambient light so that images appear more natural. 

You can turn True Tone on or off in the Displays pane of System Preferences:

  1. Choose Apple menu () > System Preferences, then click Displays.
  2. Click the Display tab.
  3. Use the True Tone checkbox to turn the feature on or off.*

Some display accessibility settings, including Invert Colors, Grayscale, and Increase Contrast, might turn off True Tone.

You can use True Tone along with Night Shift. Learn how to use Night Shift on your Mac.

* If you don't see True Tone in the Displays pane of System Preferences, your Mac doesn't support True Tone.
