How to recover GB of disk space from Xcode 7.3




Xcode is huge monster. There are 3 important place where you can save a lot of disk space on your Mac Book Air or Mac book Pro.

1) Archives
Just go to ~/Library/Developer/Xcode/Archives and delete it there. It is just an archive which contains additional data like debug information. You can save ton of GB by deleting this folder.




2) Old Device Information
Every time you update your iOS, Xcode will make a copy of device infomation. You can safely remove old  iOS device infomation at ~/Library/Developer/Xcode/iOS DeviceSupport/ which is about ~1GB per folder



3) Simulator-Apps
You can also clean up big old simulator apps at ~/Library/Application Support/iPhone Simulator.
