What color profile should I use when designing for iPhone?

We’re working with Photoshop CS5 on Mac (OSX Lion) and would like to see the colors on the Mac exactly like they will look on the iPhone. Does anybody know what color profiles we should use and how to set them correctly? Or is there any other trick?

I googled quite a lot and tried several suggestions but none of the seems to do the trick. Any hints are much appreciated!

Update: So after doing more research and talking with several app designers and devs we basically had to give up. We the color profile “Web RGB” and do the color matching manually. Not very elegant but there doesn’t seem to be a real solution (please tell me that I’m wrong!)


If you can calibrate your hardware (monitor), then it should – aside from print jobs – also be possible to be done for a mobile device. If you don’t have hardware calibration tools, then I’d say: No chance.

Aside from that: sRGB profile.
