Question

Do Esko products support the latest versions of macOS?

Answer

macOS High Sierra (10.13) was released on September 25, 2017.

macOS Mojave (10.14) was released on .

macOS Catalina (10.15) was released on

macOS 11 Big Sur is expected in fall 2020.

As with previous macOS releases, Big Sur will be a free and very easy update. However, not all Esko products support macOS Big Sur yet.

Please consult the table to check whether your product is supported.


In a production environment, it is never a good idea to upgrade your Esko workstations to a new operating system automatically. While we do everything we can to ensure compatibility with new operating system releases, you should always check the list of supported products below before you upgrade.
