Link: The New APFS File System ☍

Shared on March 30, 2017

Following my usual “fire, ready, aim” philosophy about these things, I already updated all of my iOS devices and while the update took a while (converting a file system is never a fast process), everything went just fine and devices are all working just like before. Indeed, I’m writing this post on my updated iPad Pro.

I’m still amazed Apple was able to convert a whole file system while maintaining the data on iOS devices and on top of that, it didn’t take much time. The whole process felt smooth, reliable, and transparent, which makes it feel like an even bigger accomplishment.
