Vivid features

Double your display brightness

Don’t feel like your M1 MacBook Pro and Pro Display XDR get bright enough for your needs? Use Vivid to double the brightness instantly. Set the app to launch at login for maximum convenience, or use on demand.

Adjust with regular brightness keys

Control your display brightness with the same keys as usual — no need to learn new shortcuts! Easy and quick, with Vivid, your screen brightness can be increased beyond the normal maximum system-wide.

Work in bright light

Whether you want to write a few emails on a brightly lit patio or add some finishing touches to your presentation on a park bench, Vivid makes working in full sun easy. And if you work outside for video or photoshoots, an option to make your M1 MacBook Pro screen brighter is simply a must.

Disable in menu bar

While a bright screen can be a lifesaver in a lot of environments, your much brighter display can end up using a lot of battery power or tire your eyes when in dimmer locations. In that case, just toggle Vivid off (or on) very quickly from your Mac’s menu bar.
