iOS 7.1 patches its only useful bug – nested folders

Advertisement

iOS 7 was launched to a certain degree of polarization in the industry. Some hated it, and others loved it, but there was one feature that was generally praised, and it was the fact that Apple removed its limitations to how many apps you could hold in one folder. That being said, not many knew that there was a cool bug in iOS 7 that allowed you to create folders within folders, and therefore allowing you to have a cleaner home screen.

Sadly if you relied on this feature, you might want to consider not upgrading to iOS 7.1, even if that’s not something we’d call convenient. Apple patches this bug on iOS 7.1, and even though you can still store as many apps as you want in one folder, you can’t really organize folders in a smarter way than pagination. Obviously if we weighed how buggy iOS 7 was when compared to iOS 7.1, the reasons to stay that go beyond nested folders is scarce.

We’re not sure if Apple patched the bug on purpose, or as a trial. We just hope they’re reading this article and understand how much of a mistake it made, given the fact that what most people complain about, is the eternal row of icons on your home screen.
