Here’s How To Create Nested Folders In iOS 7

September 18, 2013
Throughout the iOS 7 beta process, we discovered quite a few glitches that offered some interesting customization. Unfortunately, most of those bugs were patched throughout Apple’s iOS 7 revisions. The good news is, one of them has made it through the beta versions and into Apple's public release. The public release of iOS 7 allows you to create nested folders. This glitch may help you organize your apps better, but keep in mind that it’s a glitch, so Apple may patch it in a future update for iOS 7. If you'd like to learn how to create nested folders in iOS 7, watch the video tutorial below:

Here’s a brief explanation of this process that we published on June 29, 2013:
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.
If you’d like to restore a folder to the home screen, all you have to do is put your icons in "wiggle mode" and move it out. In our testing, the folders even remained nested after a reboot. Hopefully this glitch will help you organize your apps a little better. Maybe we'll see this become an official feature in a future update.
