Apple: Prepare for APFS →

In a new kbase article:

Apple File System (APFS), is the default file system in macOS High Sierra for Mac computers with all flash storage. APFS features strong encryption, space sharing, snapshots, fast directory sizing, and improved file system fundamentals.

When you upgrade to macOS High Sierra, systems with all flash storage configurations are converted automatically. Systems with hard disk drives (HDD) and Fusion drives won’t be converted to APFS. You can’t opt-out of the transition to APFS.

I have been running macOS High Sierra for a while on my MacBook Pro, and the move to APFS was invisible and seamless. So far, everything feels rock solid.
