    Reading about the new APDS features in Catalina, I'm wondering if Time Machine volumes are now APFS? Would be pretty surprised if they're still HFS+

    Unfortunately not.
    And Time Machine is starting to get old, and slow for NVME SSDs

    Backing up over a network using SMB (via Samba 4.8 and newer) is super fast.
