Colour of Image changing during AirDrop from Macbook to Iphone Pro (Tint Shift)

Hello,

 

I am experiencing a very annoying colour shift in my photos after Airdropping them from my Apple Macbook (Air 2023) to my Apple Iphone 14 Pro.

 

After playing around it seems there is a colour tint shift towards a green tint. Adding some Magenta back into the image using the in-Iphone Image Editor brings it someway back but its still not perfect. There could be slight shift in White Balance too.

 

To be specific I am working with 16-Bit files in Photoshop on Macbook Air with colour profile: LCD. I am exporting at PNG24 or JPEG 100% (Tried both) with both colour space settings "Convert to SRGB" and "Embed Colour Profile" ticked. Airdropping to Iphone 14 Pro.

 

On both Mac and Iphone I have True Tone and Auto-Brightness turned off.

 

Thinking its an export or colour space issue i tried searching online and found to my amazement this topic has been raised hundreds of times across various platforms (Apple Community, Adobe Community, Photoshop Community) yet no community specialist has provided an answer or solution to the problem.

 

In most cases the question is left ignored and unanswered.

 

Examples:

https://www.reddit.com/r/videography/comments/15g5zr3/davinci_resolve_color_shift_when_airdropped_to...

 

Its incredibly frustrating as ultimately the image I post online is not an accurate reflection of the image I am working with in Photoshop. I just cannot accept this huge shift in colour.

 

Hoping I can find answers to my questions here? 

 

Thank You.
Tom

It seems adding around +30/35 Tint (towards Magenta) and -10/15 White Balance (towards Blue) using the inbuilt image editor in the Iphone Photo App brings the image back closer to the image displayed in both Photoshop and on my Macbook screen after exporting.

So the colour shift is happening during the Airdrop.  Any thoughts?

The problem for me is airdropping from Macbook to Iphone. The file wont be impacted during the Airdrop (I assume) so it seem the tint shift happens when viewing on an iphone.

Does anyone know the colour space or colour management settings for the Iphone? My answer is probably there.
