Touch UI Feature Status

AEM 6.4 onwards Classic UI is deprecated . Adobe will not make further enhancements to the Classic UI and users are encouraged to leverage the powerful new features available in the touch-enabled UI.
Starting with version 6.0, AEM introduced a new user interface referred as the "touch-enabled UI" (simply called "Touch UI") that is aligned to the Adobe Experience Cloud and to the overall Adobe user interface guidelines. With near feature parity reached, this has become the standard UI in AEM with the legacy, desktop-oriented interface referred to as "classic UI".
While most capabilities are present in the touch-enabled UI, there are features that are not yet complete and will be added in future releases.
The following list shows the current status of the capabilities as implemented in AEM 6.5.
For recommendations for customers that upgrade to AEM 6.5, see User interface recommendations for customers .
This page only covers feature parity with classic UI. Capabilities added to and unique to the Touch-enabled UI that are not present in the Classic UI are not listed.
This list strives to be complete, but is not exhaustive.
