How to Create Folders within Folders (Create Nested Folders) in iOS 7.x

Creating nested folders is for people who’ve got a really large list of apps on their iPhones/iPads. For most users, folders at level one are enough but if you really want to buckle up and get a minimalist, highly-organized app view, nested folders might be needed.

Unfortunately, Apple doesn’t really support this feature. I mean, try creating a folder inside a folder? Not possible. When you move an app over another (in an attempt to create a folder), it only moves the existing app away from its place.

But with a trick, you can nest folders. It’s a simple one so there’s no fretting about to get it done.

Here’s how we put folders inside folders in iPhone/iPad on iOS 7:

  • Make sure you have a folder, and two apps ready for the experiment. Once again, it’s a folder and a couple of apps.
  • Now, create a normal folder by dragging one app over another. This creates a folder of these two apps but don’t wait too long for step #3.
  • As soon as you drag one app over the other, before the folder is created and zoomed in, tap and hold the existing folder.
  • When the new folder is created and a zoom animation takes you into the folder (with the two apps), leave your finger to let the folder fall into the new folder.
  • You can repeat this process with more folders to create nested levels.

The only problem with the trick is that it works in reverse. You can’t create a folder and then go into the folder to create a new folder.

You have to think of the last-level folder first and create it first on homescreen/springboard. Then, create a folder (which will be the level-before-last) and put the last-level folder into this one. If that’s hard to wrap around, here’s a simpler explanation.

If you want to create 3-level nested folders, create the 3rd-level folder first on the springboard. Then, create a folder (2nd-level folder) and put the 3rd-level folder inside this one. Go back to the springboard and repeat the process to create the first-level folder and put the 2nd-level folder inside this.
