Requirements articles

  1. System Requirements

    Sketch 50.2 and above requires OS X El Capitan (10.11.2) or newer, and a working Internet connection, in order to be able to install the software and receive updates and upgrades. As documents get more complex though, involving multiple Pages and hundreds of Artboards, a powerful Mac with more RAM will definitely help. Please download our 30 day free trial to test the performance before you purchase.
