If you’ve had your iPhone for more than a few days, your home screen is likely a mess of app icons. Sure you have folders you can create to house apps of a similar nature, but a single layered folder can only go so far. Wouldn’t it be nice if you could nest folders in iOS 7 like you can on a computer. For example: inside of a Media folder you could make a folder for video apps and another for music apps. That one media folder could house tons of apps while still remained easy to navigate. Unfortunately, Apple didn’t see fit to add this feature to their newest mobile OS. Fortunately, YouTuber OfficialSoftModder found a bug that lets you do it anyway.
Take a look at the video below for a rundown of how to exploit the bug. Be warned, it isn’t as simple as dragging one folder over another; you’ll need precise timing to get it to work. Create two folders on one home screen and add any apps you want into the folder you’ll be nesting. Once, done, take a look at 1:10 in the video below for the most difficult part of the trick. You’ll need to tap and hold the folder you’ll be nesting then almost immediately double-tap the Home button to enter multi-task mode. If you’ve done well, all you’ll then need to do is tap the home screen preview your folders are on, select the folder you want to nest the other folder inside of and then tap “Home.”
Though it’s a finicky trick, it isn’t all that hard once you figure it out. If you think it’s as useful as we do, make sure to share it with your friends.
