After trying out Vivid 1.0 on my 14-inch MacBook Pro (2021) in April, which expands the brightness to take advantage of the HDR display beyond Apple’s settings, the developers released version 2.0, which remakes the app from scratch.

On a tweet (opens in new tab) announcing the free update, it means that when you enable the expanded brightness setting, it is not as much effort on your CPU, so your battery usage will be higher than before when using Vivid.
