    Has apple added nested folders to iOS 7 beta? I cant use them on my iPhone 5, the icon just pushes the other one out of the way

    There are videos of nested folders on youtube under ios 7 bt nothing about it on apples website :confused:

    That was when someone used the secret apple only test settings. It was never an actual feature.

    That wallpaper can be found by searching on Google so it doesn't matter. The point is that those settings aren't easily / user accessible.

    He posted information regarding the settings on GitHub but it was removed. Who knows, maybe the person in the video did it some other way or is jailbroken.

    Doesn't matter if it isn't user-accesible at the moment - there's a a native method for nested folders already in the code of iOS 7. When the firmware gets Jailbroken it'll be easily accessible.

    Exactly, but the OP is wondering why he can't do it and the reason is because the method isn't user-accessible.

    It is not what Hamza Sood showed!! Why?
    Because there is a transition. Sood showed nested folders and when the animation zoomed in, the parent folder blur-background was just disappearing. In that video though, it gently fades out and it looks way more like a finished, Apple made feature (non experimemtal). Also, the video was uploaded 3 hrs ago so it could already be some sort of pre-GM or internal GM or whatever. Did you know, he recorded this using an HDMI recorder? He just recorded what came out of his AirPlayed Apple TV so no jailbreak required. ^^

    The background zooms out suddenly.

    I watched the video several times also in slow motion yes there is some sort of fade out.

    Is it me or is the zoom in/out animation slightly faster?

    There's a few possibilities here. As a pre-note, the transition is smooth and "finished" unlike Hamza's, so here's how I see it:

    1. It's a jailbreak not yet released to the public.
    2. It's accessed via the internal springboard settings (seems unlikely)
    3. It actually is the GM (like the video says it is)

    Thanks for simplifying what I wanted to say, that's exactly what I mean. It's "finished" and unlike Hamza's.

    If apple has been working on it, maybe we will see it in the GM?

    It was demoed in an internal build before using some internal tools (mostly for testing/design purposes). Nothing really to indicate this is something actually different and is actually in the GM.

    I guess we'll see when the GM comes out for sure, but so far beyond this video (which could simply come from previously reported on internal build/tools) nothing to really support it being anything more than something that the OS can do, but isn't actually available to the end user (as has been the case even before iOS 7).

    The second video also shows a turquoise Find my Friends icon that is only have seen for a split second. Don't those white icons for Field Test, AV and Adsheet only appear on jailbroken phones?

    So do we know that this is really any different than what's mentioned at http://www.macrumors.com/2013/06/18...al-potential-gesture-and-folder-enhancements/ or really have any particular reason to think that's the case?

    ----------

    Or that it's a jailbreak even?

    I will not repeat what Austin M. and I said because you are obviously able to read the thread, yet you are lazy :rolleyes:
    And yes, there is a difference.
    As for the Find My Friends and the AdSheet stuff, I think I read that in a list of Apple internal apps so this might be a pre-release iPhone 5S/5C or an iPhone 5 with pre-release software in it.
