Video: How to nest folders using iOS 9.0.2 bug

We show you how to nest folders by leveraging a bug in iOS 9.0.2 that lets you drag and drop as you would with any standard app.

If like us you spend a lot of time poking around your smartphone’s operating system you may sometimes come across bugs or quirks that can more of a help than an hindrance. Here’s a newly discovered behaviour in iOS 9.0.2.

In the past the company’s shown reluctance to embrace the idea of folders on its mobile operating system, not implementing it until iOS 4 and removing the cap on how many apps can fit inside a folder a little while later.

Should nested folder become an official part of iOS? Let us know what you think in the comments below.
