It always happens that Apple’s manager and even CEO Tim Cook respond to emails from users, most recently MacRumors Reader Jonathan An Answer from Apple’s Software Engineering Chief Craig Federighi Jonathan asked Federigh i Update on the development of the APFS for Mac models with Fusion Drive. The Fusion Drive is a hybrid of conventional HDD and a small SSD. While the HDD offers low storage space, the system uses the SSD for recurring tasks, for example, to speed up the boot process. So far, this circumstance caused problems, so Apple for the time being with “Fusion Drive” memories for a “later date” comforted.
Therefore, Jonathan Federighi now asked if the development is still in progress or if it will no longer be able to create the file system on Fusion Drive systems. In a well-known manner, the Apple manager replied succinctly that this question will be dealt with shortly or an answer should be expected soon.
Federighi’s response suggests that the issue will be discussed at WWDC in about two weeks. At the same time it is also expected that Apple will introduce macOS 10.14 together with other new operating systems.
