MATLAB R2022b Native Apple Silicon Platform Open Beta

The MATLAB® R2022b native Apple® silicon platform open beta is an early build of MATLAB for Apple silicon Mac® users to evaluate the execution of existing code and apps, and to test third-party integrations and add-ons. This beta will be available until June 30, 2023.


The following products are included with the MATLAB R2022b Native Apple Silicon Platform Open Beta:

  • Simulink
  • Signal Processing Toolbox
  • Statistics and Machine Learning Toolbox
  • Image Processing Toolbox
  • DSP System Toolbox
  • Parallel Computing Toolbox
  • Curve Fitting Toolbox
  • Symbolic Math Toolbox
  • Communications Toolbox
  • Control System Toolbox
  • Deep Learning Toolbox
  • 5G Toolbox
  • LTE Toolbox
  • MATLAB Compiler
  • MATLAB Compiler SDK


The MATLAB R2022b native Apple silicon platform open beta has the following limitations:

  • Native Apple silicon MATLAB performance is still under development and this open beta is not representative of how a production release of MATLAB will perform on Apple silicon.
  • The documentation included with the native Apple silicon platform open beta is incomplete.
  • The add-ons explorer is not available. Add-ons can still be installed manually.
  • Support packages are not available.
  • The open beta requires a Java Runtime Environment (JRE). You must install a JRE on your Mac to run the open beta.

Obtain a JRE

To use the MATLAB R2022b native Apple silicon platform open beta, you must install a Java 8 JRE on your Mac. This JRE must run natively on Apple silicon. 

Amazon makes a suitable Java 8 JRE available as part of Amazon Corretto 8: Download Amazon Corretto 8. Select the .pkg installer for platform "macOS aarch64" when downloading Amazon Corretto 8.

If you installed Azul® Zulu OpenJDK 8 for a previous beta, Azul Zulu OpenJDK 8 is also suitable for use with the R2022b Platform Open Beta.
