The peak brightness is 1,600 candelas per square meter (cd/m²), also known as “nits” in American parlance. 1,000 cd/m² are achieved in full screen. Apple’s Monitor Pro Display XDR, which costs several thousand euros, achieves the same values. However, there is one limitation: in order to enjoy such brilliant displays, they must be supported by apps, macOS itself does not provide them by default.

Vivid removes the macOS brightness limit
As a rule, this is not necessary either, because such brightness values ​​are rarely or never required apart from HDR video editing, for example. If you still want to use it permanently or only from time to time, you can now use a new HDR tool called Vivid grasp. It was developed by Ben Harraway and Jordi Bruin, the latter is known for his FluTooth application (see ).


The app removes the macOS limit of 500 cd/m² and allows higher values ​​to be set up to the maximum. The regulation is carried out with the known keys of the Mac keyboard. Switching between SDR and HDR mode is done with a key combination. There is no need to worry about damage to the display. According to Apple, the panels are designed for continuous use with maximum brightness. “Vivid” costs 15 euros, a test version is available.

Election app from Navalny supporters is available again
A little over six months ago, in September 2021, Apple removed an election app from the Russian App Store that was developed by supporters of jailed opposition figure Alexei Navalny. The deletion comes after the government threatened to prosecute employees of the iPhone company for having the app in the company’s digital software store. The application contained information about more than a thousand candidates for elections to the Duma, Russia’s parliament. It was intended to persuade as many voters as possible to vote against Putin’s United Russia party. The app is now available again in the Russian App Store, as confirmed by Navalny employee Leonid Volkov Washington Post. It is not known what prompted Apple to take this step. It is possible that the Californian company no longer sees any danger that employees could be subjected to reprisals from the Kremlin after its extensive withdrawal from Russia.
