Published: 02/06/2020

By Devorah Hayman

Intel® compilers usually support the latest available update of Microsoft Visual Studio* and Xcode* or macOS* available at or before the release time.

Any update of Microsoft Visual Studio and Xcode* or macOS* that comes after the latest version of Intel® compiler available at that time is not supported. The support for these newer versions will be available with the subsequent versions of Intel compilers.

The following table lists Intel® compilers support for Microsoft Visual Studio and Xcode* versions, as well as Windows OS and macOS* versions.

It is recommended to upgrade to the latest Intel® compilers.
