    I have a MacBook Pro 14 with the XDR screen and an i1d3. Is it worth it to fine tune the calibration? I don’t need to match the display to another one, just want the most accurate colors.

    It depends on how bad your whitepoint is out if the box. Measure it with DisplayCAL and you’ll see how bad (or good) it is.

    In BT.709 mode it measures x=0.3127, y=0.3285, 101.16 cm/m^2

    That’s meaningless.

    dE00 to daylight locus & (secondary & much less important) CDT. It is shown on reports (HTML or log window). Measure in all modes that you are going to use … and you are not going to use BT.709 on a color managed desktop.

    18:26:40,066 Uncalibrated response:
    18:26:40,066 Black level = 0.0000 cd/m^2
    18:26:40,066 50% level = 17.39 cd/m^2
    18:26:40,066 White level = 80.56 cd/m^2
    18:26:40,066 Aprox. gamma = 2.21
    18:26:40,066 Contrast ratio = 1:1
    18:26:40,066 White chromaticity coordinates 0.3108, 0.3299
    18:26:40,066 White Correlated Color Temperature = 6600K, DE 2K to locus = 6.4
    18:26:40,066 White Correlated Daylight Temperature = 6601K, DE 2K to locus = 2.1
    18:26:40,066 White Visual Color Temperature = 6361K, DE 2K to locus = 6.1
    18:26:40,066 White Visual Daylight Temperature = 6527K, DE 2K to locus = 2.0

    is this useful?

    If you used Spectral Correction WLED PFS for macbook retina, it’s just a bit non white. You can consider it “calibrated” (whitepoint). Apple fine tune only can fox this so you may want to skip it.
    Also it may vary with brightness slider.
    For full verification testing read some older thread although grey should be OK

    If you did not use an spectral correction for measurement, the one suited for these WLED PFS display or some close relative, you measuremenst are wrong and youll need to redo it properly. I’m assuming that you used proper CCSS correction since it’s labeled for newer macs with P3 screens.

    I used the macbook pro wled pfs ccss correction when doing the measurement. Thank you for answering my question.
