Apple adopted the hierarchical file system at the very beginning, which is what we are familiar with HFS. Subsequently, Apple introduced its own HFS+ file system, and has been in use ever since.
New Apple File System (APFS) has solved couple of problems exist in HFS and HFS+. Honestly, most users haven’t realized these problems on their computers. In order to fix the hard drive capacity problem that limit to HFS+, APFS adopts the 64-bit APFS index node, that is file ID, while HFS+ used 32-bit, so you can think this is a great process that APFS have made.

APFS can still support the local single-key and secret-key cryptography, that is to say, users can use the FielVault to encrypt or decrypt individual files and folders, and lock/unlock the entire hard drive. Spotlight search is also a little faster than beforedue to the search itself and the capacity of the hard disk. for most users, in a word, what APFS can bring is absolutely obvious: it makes you hard drive run faster and safer than before.
