During the last Apple Developer World Conference or WWDC, which took place in the summer of 2016, Cupertino put on the table a new file system developed by themselves much safer and with superior performance called APFS . Well, eight months later it seems that APFS is finally going to be a reality for consumers, who will have the opportunity to experience it on their iPad and iPhone with the imminent iOS 10.3 .
Last Monday, Apple released iOS 10.3 beta for developers - that in the last hours has been made public for anyone who wants to test with the beta - which revealed that in addition to some interesting features like Find my AirPods or keyboard Floppy for iPad , the file system used would be APFS.
The APFS or Apple File System ensures incorporates significant improvements in the file system in a generalized way . Among them, it will be optimized to be used in Flash or SSD memory, allow cloning of files and directories, capture, quick resizing of directories, be much safer when implementing stronger encryption and incorporate copy-on-write metadata.
But to test APFS we'll have to wait until March , just half the cycle of iOS 10. That yes, we must keep in mind that although the updates are released when they are stable and secure, there are always some bug, so to more news , More failures. And now our data are at stake.
Therefore and as the warning is not a traitor, Apple has already pronounced:
WITH THE IOS 10.3 UPDATE YOUR DEVICE WILL UPGRADE YOUR FILE SYSTEM TO APFS. THIS CONVERSION WILL RETAIN THE EXISTING DATA, BUT IN ANY CASE, IT IS RECOMMENDED TO CREATE A BACKUP.
Given the enormous expectation generated, not many intrepid who have ventured to try the beta, ensuring that the speed of the system is higher and so far, in the forums and communities have hardly been reported complaints.
