I've been having issues deleting and moving files. It always takes a few extra seconds to do it.. it's vey annoying. Anyone else seeing this? Is it a beta issue?

The algorithm for calculating the files needed to move or delete has some problems. I do such much faster under Windows using ntfs file system. Maybe this is an issue rooted inside hfs file system. I don't know. :(

I have seen constant tab reload while using camera app to take photos! Who says 1GB of ram is enough for iPhone 6 Plus???

Since next beta is imminent, I think you could see if next beta version could do better. If not, then report.

I think I'll wait till the next beta, it is still quite early. Was just wondering if anyone else was seeing this.

Talking about this, the issue I have is calculating occupies spaces takes much longer time than on Windows. Many times users just want to know an approximate size, not an accurate one.

It has been a pain here too to copy huge folders (in terms of number of files). I ended up using the command line.

I take more than 10 minutes to delete a xcode app folder. It is too slow, and much slower than under Windows.

Xcode contains thousands of folders and files. And HFS+ doesn't help in this case.
Btw, have you ever tried deleting Xcode under Windows?

No. I just leave it be. :(
Maybe next time I should try doing this under Windows.
