macos – Learn how to merge “unmerge-able APFS drive” into one partition?


I’ve a bit of drawback. My MacBook has two spare partitions – 29GB and 6GB. Each are within the APFS format and I can’t take away them with Disk Utility. The 29GB was created from shrinking the Bootcamp quantity. The 6GB.. I do not know.

All drives’ listing from iTerm:

So how can I merge these partitions into macOS partition (into disk0 or disk0s2 partition)?

What's your reaction?
