If this news saddened many users who own these machines, here is a fresh news that will brighten their hearts: responding to an email sent by a reader of the MacRumors which asked for the lack of support, Craig Federighi (senior vice president of software engineering at Ma) responded by saying that "very soon they would address this issue."

Although the phrase did not give a clear guideline, Apple had previously said that even if Fusion Drives could not be converted to APFS, they would have support for the new file system, but it would arrive later.

With this statement by Federighi, it seems that the date is very close, at least perhaps the news could come close to macOS 10.14, which will be presented at the Worldwide Developers Conference (WWDC) 2018, on June 4th. Who knows?

Now, we can only wait to see you can follow the full coverage of the event here at , as always! 😉
