Mount an Apple APFS drive in Ubuntu

Install ‘fsapfsmount’:

sudo apt install libfsapfs-utils

List your drives:

sudo disk -l

Look for the drive you want to mount. Example:

Device      Start        End    Sectors   Size Type
/dev/sdb1      40     409639     409600   200M EFI System
/dev/sdb2  409640 2000409223 1999999584 953.7G unknown

/dev/sdb2 is the drive we want to mount

Issue the command to mount the drive:

sudo fsapfsmount -f 1 [source] [directory to mount at]

sudo fsapfsmount -f 1 /dev/sdb2 /media/usb

The drive contents will be inaccessible to all but the root user.
