I used the "Screen resolution" confirmation function.

The most common size of mobile resolution on my site was "375x667". This matches the "pt" size of the iPhone (6, 6s, 7, 8, SE). On the other hand, Adobe's description states that the resolution is in "px" units.Which is the correct unit, "px" or "pt"?

(The most common size of Desktop resolution on my site was "1366 x 768". which I assume is in "px" size.)

Please let me know if you know.

Thanks for reading!
