This iOS 7 Beta Glitch Lets You Create Functional Nested Folders
Recently, we found a glitch that allows you to put apps inside of Newsstand with iOS 7 beta. Now, another glitch has been discovered by VBarraquito on Twitter that lets you create fully functional nested folders. It’s a pretty useful glitch, but I wouldn’t expect it to last unless Apple makes this an actual feature in the final release of iOS 7. We’ve put together a handy video tutorial that will show you how to create nested folders in iOS 7 beta: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=YBg8-tQzNu0
If you can’t see the above video, please click this link.The process is shown in the video above, but I’ll do my best to explain it. First, tap and hold on a folder, then immediately double press the home button. Now, tap on the home screen card within the multitask switcher. The folder should now look similar to the over-sized folder below. Next, open another folder and press the home button and the first folder will follow you into the second folder. I haven't found a limit to this nested folder glitch, but I've only nested about six folders so far.

The folder should come out of the second folder and land on your home screen. Alternatively, you can restart your device to return all folders back to the home screen. For a detailed look at this process check out our video overview. As I mentioned, this is a glitch and will probably be removed in a future beta. This glitch definitely makes sense as a regular feature, but we’ll just have to wait until the fall when iOS 7 is officially released.
