Although some glitches in iOS 7 are more dangerous than others, a new set of glitches have been discovered by iDownloadblog that allow you to actually hide apps, hide folders and even nest folders within folders. These are the kinds of glitches that you will without a doubt want to take advantage of until there is an iOS 7 Jailbreak to bring about this functionality in the form of a tweak.
It is worth noting that these glitches were around since the beta version of iOS 7, but because they still work in the final version of iOS 7 we thought they would be worth bringing to your attention. So without further hesitation here are the instructions to nest folders within folders and hide both folders and apps.

Step 4) – Tap the folder where you want to move your initially selected folder.
Step 5) – Lastly press the Home button once, and the folder should move into the receiving folder and voila!
How To Hide Folders And Apps
