In this beta, Apple has fixed several issues relating to APFS:
• Fixed an issue that prevented enabling FileVault on APFS volumes.
• Fixed an issue where the encryption policy used for unencrypted APFS volumes that are converted to FileVault could cause the system to select the wrong block offset during the encryption process. Affected volumes need to be re-encrypted. Encrypted HFS+ volumes that have are converted to APFS are unaffected.
• Fixed an issue where an APFS container on a Fusion drive could have only 1 macOS 10.13 volume.
• Fixed an issue where APFS systems with FileVault enabled could not reset their password with iCloud. (32818928)
