I did the update on my iPhone 6S without any issues whatsoever.

so far so good.. seems like nothing is 'broken' or as extreme like the MacOS update with the new file structure..

10.12.4 doesn't include a new file structure. Just the same developer-level APFS functionality as has existed since the first 10.12 betas.

10.3 migrated all newer iOS devices to APFS.

Well, I have an iPhone 5 (yes I am ancient) and when I check on apps that "might slow down my iPhone" it lists out every app I have installed, including Keynote, TestFlight, iAD, App Store (yes), Apple Store, Calculator, Camera, Compass, FaceTime etc. There are more, I just got sick of listing each one out.

The funny part is, all these apps were just updated yesterday before installing 10.3. And there are no updates available for these after the upgrade.

In addition to these, I have quite a few Apple services that are "incompatible", liked AccountAuthenticationDialog, AACredentialRecoryDialog, AskPermissionUI, etc.

Of course there are third party apps like Google Maps, 1Password and many others in that list.

Funny!

Cheers

All your sources and news feeds are wrong.

10.12.4 does not migrate macOS devices to APFS or make APFS any more accessible than it already was in 10.12.3. It's very much in beta on the macOS side.

Aside from just reading the various articles, take a look at your formatting in Disk Utility. Nothing has changed.

Your "source" is a screenshot from the WWDC keynote introducing APFS as a future feature.

What does this new Apple File System do for me? Is it just some under the hood stuff that they are touting as a new feature or is it supposed to make my life better somehow? This is the first I have heard about it.

Apple's iOS 10.3 update can reclaim as much as 7.8GB of available storage (http://appleinsider.com/articles/17/03/28/apples-ios-103-update-can-reclaim-as-much-as-78gb-of-available-storage)

While the feature enhancements of new OS updates generally take up more of your available storage, Apple's latest iOS 10.3 update has freed up gigabytes of available storage for many users making the upgrade. It reclaimed as much as 7.81 GB in our testing.

Just did the update. Before updating I had 93.62 gigs free on my iPhone 7 Plus. After update I have 96.53 gigs free. So reclaimed a little space... not that I needed it!
