I'm running arch on a MacbookPro13,1.
There used to be a really annoying bug with the NVMe controller, that
would delay bootup by up to 2 minutes. Luckily that has been fixed in
4.15.2 or so. The only feature I'm really missing is working
suspend/resume (wifi works on the 13,1). With kernel 4.16, bluetooth
will work out of the box on the 13,3 (13,1 still needs a small patch
For out-of-tree drivers, there are AUR packages:
Both are working on getting them into mainline.
