Adobe has announced it will stop distributing and updating Flash Player at the end of 2020 and is encouraging web developers to migrate any existing Flash content to open standards. Apple is working with Adobe, industry partners, and developers to complete this transition.


To display rich interactive content in the browser, WebKit—the engine that powers Safari—supports the latest standards, including the following:

  • HTML Video and Media Source Extensions
  • HTML Canvas and WebGL 
  • CSS 
  • WebRTC
  • WebAssembly
