How to put a folder in a folder on iOS 7
This isn't really supposed to be an option in iOS 7, yet apparently, there's a way to do it anyway. It turns out that nesting a folder inside another folder is indeed possible using this clever method demonstrated in the video below. You'll just need to be patient and fast in order to pull it off. 

Basically, what you first need is to make a folder that you want to have placed in another. Then stack two apps together – this will create a new folder, which you drag that other folder into as soon as the new folder pops up. The trick might not work the first time you try it, but it should eventually. Go give it a try!


Thanks for the tip!

Its a bug.. If you try to put folder into folder its not possible..
It is a real bug but a real nice one..... :) Helpful actually..
Read " it won't work for the first or second or so, but it works eventually". So it is basically a bug.

Accidentally bug that become feature. Indicated, it won't work for the first or second or so, but it works eventually. So it is basically a bug.

I sure in some other os manual is called the sub-directory.

Yeah! go ahead and patent it. if they get away with slide to unlock, bounce effect..etc

Best innovation since slice bread.

A folder within a folder... Fileception! We must go deeper.

You wrote you're waiting for the trolls, yet you write a troll comment.

Pot, meet kettle.

You are SO original. At least try to make a joke supporting your prediction instead of being that silly hipster in the corner! You guys don't like anything!

Or, you know... you could just use Android and have exactly what you want on your screen and not have to make folders in folders to "clean" the screen. JS
