Forum Question: Will There Be an OS Update for Mac With Fusion Drives?

Apple has just released High Sierra, there is some information about it is not ready for MACS that have fusion drives. Do you think they will provide an update for MACS with a fusion drive?

    That’s not true. High Sierra works on Macs with hard drives, Fusion drives, and solid-state drives (SSDs). However, the new APFS file system is currently only for solid state drives. If you have a hard drive or a Fusion drive and your Mac is compatible with High Sierra, you can certainly still upgrade. The only difference is you will not be upgraded to the new APFS file system.

    Apple has stated that a future version of High Sierra will support APFS on Fusion drives. I doubt they will ever support APFS for regular hard drives as it is clearly aimed at SSDs. Fusion drives are a hybrid. I don’t even think there are any Macs in production today that have old-fashioned hard drives.
