Apple has introduced a new feature for Apple TV users. The new Color Balance feature will help you to calibrate your Apple TV’s color balance. To use the Color Balance feature, you should have an iPhone with Face ID and Apple TV with tvOS 14.5 or later. With the Color Balance feature, you can calibrate the accuracy of the colors displayed on your Apple TV by using your iPhone.

The Color Balance feature works by using the Apple TV to send a signal that shows a series of colors on your Apple TV, then measuring those colors with iPhone’s Face ID camera to determine how accurate they are. If you are using Apple TV older version of tvOS, update your Apple TV to the latest version.
