Hopefully this isn't a dupe of a known trick (at least as simply as this) but... If you drag one app icon over to another which initiates the create folder action, whilst quickly letting go and selecting a current folder and dragging it into the 'newly created' folder. Timing is key so it may take a little practice. See the video below (not mine). http://www.ithome.com/html/iphone/77887.htm EDIT: YT video for those with problems loading the Chinese original: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5pS1mQPBxA0 Works on my rMini and 5s with or without Reduce Motion on. The only side effect seems to be a 'jerk' when backing out of a nested folder as the wallpaper scales.
