Does MATLAB support my platform/operating system?

MathWorks periodically updates platform support in response to shifts in usage, and is planning the following platform changes. MATLAB 2024a/b brings a host of changes:

Platforms Supported or Added with R2024a

  • Windows 10 and 11
  • OS X 13.0 (Ventura) and OSX 14.0 (Sonoma)
  • SUSE® Enterprise Linux Server 15 or higher
  • Ubuntu 20.04 LTS and higher are supported as of R2024a.

Platforms Dropped with R2024a/b or Prior Releases

  • 32-bit Windows: Support for all 32-bit Windows operating systems was dropped as of R2016a
  • Support for Windows 7 to 8.1 will be discontinued as of R2018b.
  • Windows Server 2008 R2 is not supported as of R2018a.
  • Windows Server 2012 is not supported as of R2024a
  • OS X 10.11 (El Capitan) and older: Support will be dropped as of R2018b; support for newer releases of OS X will continue for the latest 3 Mac OS.
  • OS X 11.0  (Big Sur) was last supported on R2023a and OS X 12.0 (Monterey) while supported on R2024a will not be supported on R2024b due to end of life.
  • Ubuntu: Support for all Ubuntu versions 18.04 LTS and below was dropped as of R2024a, support for newer releases such as 22.04 LTS and above will continue

Change in Policy for Linux Support
MathWorks has changed its support policy to follow Red Hat’s and SUSE’s own support approach to minor versions. Note that this change does not impact support for major versions. The effect of this change is as follows for R2024a:

  • SUSE: 12 SP2 is the only minor version of 12 that remains supported with MATLAB recommending you update to 15 SP1 or newer.
  • Red Hat: RHEL 7 and newer but only if you are on the latest service pack.
