The iPad Pro 9.7 fully and very accurately supports two important standard Color Gamuts, the new DCI-P3 Wide Color Gamut that is used in 4K UHD TVs and Digital Cinema, and also the traditional smaller sRGB / Rec.709 Color Gamut that is used for producing virtually all current consumer content for digital cameras, TVs, the internet, and computers, including photos, videos, and movies. The Absolute Color Accuracy of the iPad Pro 9.7 is Truly Impressive as shown in these Figures. It is the most color accurate display that we have ever measured. It is visually indistinguishable from perfect, and is very likely considerably better than any mobile display, monitor, TV or UHD TV that you have.
The iPad Pro 9.7 reflects just 1.7 percent of the ambient light by using a new Anti-Reflection AR coating. That's the lowest screen reflectance of any mobile display by far. This means compared to most tablets and smartphones light glare is reduced by 3 to 1.
The new iPad display breaks records for Highest Absolute Color Accuracy for any display for Both Color Gamuts (1.35 JNCD), Lowest Screen Reflectance for any mobile display (1.7 percent), Highest Peak Brightness in a full size Tablet for any Picture Level (511 nits), Highest Contrast Rating in High Ambient light (301), and Smallest Color variation with Viewing Angle (all under 2.0 JNCD).
Addressing the new True Tone feature that changes the white point and color balance of the display based on ambient light, DisplayMate feels the feature needs a slider to adjust the magnitude of the effect.
