Creating nested folders, or a folder in a folder, is a bug/glitch that existed on iOS 7 & iOS 8 . This article will show you how to nest folders (create a folder in a folder) in just a few easy steps.

  1. Organise a folder for the deepest layer.
  2. Put two apps over each other to create a folder.
  3. Quickly hold the other folder (from step 1) before the newly created folder opens.
  4. Drop the folder.

There it is! A folder in a folder. You could create as many layers as you like by repeating all these steps. But, since this is only a glitch, so it was fixed in iOS 9.
