Migrating to v6

This guide explains how and why to migrate from Material UI v5 to v6.

Start using the alpha release

In the package.json file, change the package version from latest to next.

-"@mui/material": "latest",
+"@mui/material": "next",

Using next ensures your project always uses the latest v6 alpha release. Alternatively, you can also target and fix it to a specific version, for example, 6.0.0-alpha.0.

Breaking changes

Since v6 is a new major release, it contains some changes that affect the public API. The steps you need to take to migrate from Material UI v5 to v6 are described below.
