Apple is Upgrading iOS File System

There are a few improvements with the latest iOS update (10.3) that includes a "Find my AirPods" option and CarPlay improvements. One of the things that Apple has been using for years is the standard Hierarchical File System (HFS) and in fact, it's 31 years old. They've finally ditched that in favor of the new APFS (Apple File System). I'm sure that will go smooth for everyone.

 Apple has been using its 31-year-old Hierarchical File System (HFS) for iOS devices so far. It was originally designed for Macs with floppy or hard disks, and not for modern mobile devices with solid state storage. Even its successor, HFS+, still doesn’t address the needs of these mobile devices enough. Apple’s new APFS is designed to scale across these new types of devices and take advantage of flash or SSD storage.
