How do I split Fusion drive on Mojave / APFS?

Текст:

Hello.

I have a 2013 iMac that has a Fusion drive. I want to replace its internal HDD with an SSD. My understanding is that I should split the Fusion drive before performing this.

I referred to the article https://www.macworld.com/article/2015664/storage-flash/how-to-split-up-a-fusion-drive.html which discusses the use of diskUtil and Core Storage to get the GUIDs and split the drive.

However, invoking '''disktutil coreStorage list''' returned ‘No CoreStorage logical volume groups found’. I then tried '''diskutil list''', which returned  more information, apparently showing the fused drives as '''‘synthesized’.''' I read a bit about this in other discussions, and it seems like this is perhaps a Mojave/APFS version of a Core Storage Fusion  config.

I’m wondering what I need to do to split my Fusion drive. Is there something else to use, or do I not even need to split the HDD/SSD before replacing the HDD?

Thanks.

=== Update (12/22/2018) ===

I wonder if I need to downgrade it to High Sierra, and setup the drive as HFS?
