    Maybe you mean Fusion-equipped iMacs running High Sierra continue to use HFS+ instead of APFS, but that's a substantially different claim than "new iMac's with fusion drives won't work with High Sierra", which they do.

    There is no message. You have to perform a convoluted procedure to see your battery count cycle and then judge for yourself if it should be replaced.

    APFs was the key function for High Sierra and they released it without it working on iMacs, a major current product. Simple enough.

    Nice backpedal... "iMacs won't work with High Sierra" is very different claim than "High Sierra on an iMac uses HFS+ instead of APFS". Most people wouldn't even know what that means, there are no noticeable advantages to APFS right now, and in any case it will be coming along in a later update. It's a complete non-issue.

    OK I could have been clearer. But the fact remains Apple is more and more shipping products that don't work with key functions, for example, iPhone that won't plug into macbooks without buying n additional cable. Jobs would not have stood for this. He would have included the cable so everything works together. Releasing a new OS with the key functionality not able to be used on a significant part of currently selling product is just bad planning and bad execution. You say its ok, and I am fine with that, you have the right. But for me its not ok and is a symptom of significant problems at Apple that seem to just be getting worse.

    But Android is definitely not more efficient, and is definitely not faster. Hence the rumors of a complete rewrite of its lower levels to get rid of its innate poor latency and performance compared to iOS.
    Also, "Android" doesn't have its "own" processor, which is part of its problem. If Google is able to make custom SoCs for only its own use, that is going to be a very small % of new devices that run some form of Android.

    As a guy with a Pixel 2XL and an iPhone X, yes there are a lot of times when the iPhone feels slower. And it runs on lower end hardware better than iOS.

    There is and no, it's not convoluted, not sure why you are trying to distort reality, you are not a media agency, you have nothing to gain from this. https://support.apple.com/en-us/HT207453

    Any iMac with SSD have APFs is this a race for the most ignorant claim?

    That is not as accurate as coconut battery. Is your average idiot going into settings menus looking for a small area of text that says your battery MAY need to be serviced? Are they installing a 3rd party app on their mac to check their battery cycles? No.

    What's wrong with a big ol' pop up that says "HEY IDIOT YOU NEED A NEW BATTERY" the same way they continue to annoy you if you don't take a software update.

    1 you do also get a pop up every time you restart the device, if it was more annoying than that you would claim that they force you to pay for battery replacement spamming you to death.
    2 if you have not that message the trothing does not happen, simple as that, once that alert trigger the system enter in throttling mode, coconut won't trigger any throttling it can says and thing whatever it wants.
    3 funny that you thing that coconut has better battery information than the system itself, (you know that coconut grabs it's own info from the system right? It's not sorcery)just because it give less info it does not mean it's less accurate.
