To use these new color functions we need to know what they are and what situation they're most suitable for.

sRGB

sRGB is a kind of color standard created in 1996. Most of the content on the Internet is applied to sRGB and most cameras and printers support sRGB. sRGB Mode limits the gamut of the display within sRGB's color space. When you watch sRGB content such as youtube, the color will be natural looking.

Adobe RGB

Adobe RGB is created by Adobe. It has a wider color area than sRGB so it can express more color details. If you are a creator, the wider color area will be important to you. It can help you show more detailed colors, making the project visually perfect. Adobe RGB Mode limits the gamut of display within Adobe RGB color space.

Display P3

Display P3 is created by Apple. The color coverage includes sRGB and DCI-P3 gamut curves that can reveal spectacular images. DCI-P3 is defined by Digital Cinema Initiatives and it's suitable for video editing or viewing. The Display P3 has advantages that can bring an outstanding entertainment experience to you.
