Nested folders or (folders within folders) was first discovered during the beta testing of iOS 7. It’s the ability to put a folder into another folder on the iPhone, iPad and iPod touch.
How come I can’t simply drag one folder and place it in another folder?
- The reason you can’t simply do this is because this is a glitch that can be activated by using a few quick movements on your device.
- iOS 7 folders weren’t intended to be used in this way.
Now in iOS 7, when you create a new folder you can add as many apps into that folder as you want. It may sound kind of pointless to be adding a folder into another folder, but it’s a great way to hide some apps you may not like and tuck them away in a nested folder.
