Apple released version 2.2.2 of its monitor firmware Pro Display XDR, adding support for custom reference modes. The function also requires the presence of macOS 10.15.4.
In a new support document, Apple says that users can now create custom custom reference modes when there are specific workflow needs, selecting from different options for color gamut, white point, luminance and SDR transfer function.
