Verifying for unhappily ever after: How to skip verification on Xcode 8 beta 6

Quite a few people have found that verification of Xcode 8 beta 6 is near endless and may well be endless because we never actually get to the end before aborting. It turns out a solution was posted to stackoverflow to solve this issue: Open Terminal Enter the following command: xattr -d /Applications/ Double tap the app as usual to open and I can confirm that it worked for me. It's not something that Apple recommends because it skips verification but for those of us who want to get Xcode 8 beta 6 up and running it certainly helps.  Alternatively you can follow Apple's advice and file a bug report, then wait, the choice is yours.
