    Hello everyone!
    Can somebody confirm this? I just tried switching from PC / Mac / Linux Standalone to iOS with a project that is not even 400MB in size. It takes a very long time.

    Greetings,
    Shu

    Is this a regression compared to earlier versions of Unity?

    Unfortunately, I can only compare to Unity way back at version 5.2.2.
    In 5.2.2, projects that are about 1.5GB in size take about 5 minutes to switch platform.
    Now, in 5.4.0B22*, 370MB already take more than that (about 8 minutes).
    When doing the math, 5.4.0B22 takes about 4 times longer. Should be resulting in about 33 minutes with a 1,5GB project instead of 5 minutes.

    *I haven’t tested this far in any other versions between .2.2 and .4B22 since this is the first more or less stable version since .2.2 for me.

    EDIT:
    Alright, I just stopped the time.
    342MB actually took 7 minutes to change platform.
    Issue is still there in B24.
