If you look for best display screens to adjust or calibrate colorimetric issues, sure you will chose an Apple Retina Display screen. It has a special and subtle screen color reproduction system. If you look, for example, at some smartphones screen, you will get so shined because of the screen’s saturation and brightness high levels. That is no good for us, what we need is a clear screen to display our colors truly. Maybe you are a creative person or simply an artist… never mind, you need to design your own color palette, then, let’s make your own palette with iPhone .
I’ve written before the phrase ‘… palette with iPhone ’, but you can use any Apple iDevice what includes iMac, MacBooks and any iOS Devices. Obviously you can use also all in the world devices with a screen, but the best way to make it is using an Apple`s Retina display device, sure. But, remember, you can use what you want to search for your customized color.

But, just fix your look into the red circle at the bottom side of next picture. It is enclosing all technical data about the selected main color. This time it is displaying info about the pink color located at the middle of the screen.
