Error ios 8.4 simulator in xcode 7


I'm trying to download the simulator of iOS 8.4 in Xcode 7 and it returns this error:


Could not download and install ios 8.4. Authorization is required to install the packages.

Before that, I entered my user password.

To perform this operation, run Xcode as root with the command sudo and install within that session:

sudo /Applications/

Once you have installed you must exit and start normally.

You should be careful if you have open projects when you use sudo to launch Xcode.
