> Josh reported the same thing one month ago on the infrastructure list. At the time, I discovered that Xcode had created two separate copies of a CoreSimulator directory, each containing cache files for simulating iOS, iPadOS, watchOS and tvOS environments, none of which we need or asked for, and each copy occupied 9.2GB. At the time, I deleted one of them, leaving us with 25GB free space. I have now deleted the second one, leaving us with 11GB free space and additional space will be freed once the currently running build of py37-tensorflow finishes. But it seems likely that Xcode will silently recreate this enormous cache at some point in the future.

Looks like the copy of the CoreSimulator directory that I had deleted on January 18 got recreated on January 25. I have deleted it again. We are now at 20GB free.
