iOS 7 Hidden Features, Secret Tricks & Folders Inside A Folder on iPhone

Hidden settings in iOS 7 indicate the ability to add folders inside a folders and navigate with smart swipes.

Sweeping motions

Apple has looked for iOS 7 at extra sweeping motions to control your iDevice. This shows a few hidden iOS 7 settings, discovered in the beta by Hamza Sood. The options are not standard in the settings screen, but in the video you can see how they appeared by Sood. 

Folder inside a folder

With a few other hidden options would also be possible to configure your folders. From the folder settings, it is possible to put folders inside an other folder or to close the folder with a quick pinch. A second option allows you to change the speed and angle of the animation when opening an app but animation options are so technical that we suspect that they are intended for testers at Apple. 

The sweeping movements in the settings screen would make it possible to swipe from the side of the screen to an other tab. And to hold your iPhone home screen could also have an effect. 

It is still unclear whether these features will be available in a later beta version of iOS 7, or that Apple no longer intends to offer these settings. A chance that Apple has hidden these features, because they are not stable enough to offer them for developers in the first beta, but Apple may also have hidden them because they have nothing to do with it and there was no time to remove them from iOS 7.
