What is APFS?

APFS support

A couple of years ago, Apple introduced the Apple File System (APFS), which is used on Macs, iPhones, iPads, Apple TVs, Apple Watches, and other Apple products.

The file system structure is quite stable and very rarely undergoes radical changes.

Until now, there was no way to open files on APFS-formatted drives from Windows.

But everything has changed: now you can get access to APFS drives from Windows and read necessary files.

Moreover, it is completely free of charge.

Just download and install DiskInternals Linux Reader.
