How To Move Newsstand Inside A Folder In iOS 5, No Jailbreak Needed

Most of us have already updated to iOS 5 on our iPhones / iPads and are very well aware of the new Newsstand feature. But some people seem to find it annoying that Newsstand which is basically a folder itself dedicated to App Store’s digital publications, can not be moved inside another folder. Luckily, a cool trick discovered by The Coding Massacre makes it possible to put Newsstand inside another folder and best of all, it doesn’t even require a jailbreak.

Simply follow the steps given below to make this work!

Step 1:

Take two apps and go to create a folder

Step 2:

The second the apps are in the folder and it’s doing the folder creation animation, drag Newsstand into the folder

Step 3:

As long as you’re quick enough Newsstand will go into the folder!

Thats it. Enjoy!


* If you open Newsstand while it’s in a folder your springboard will crash. If you want to use Newsstand at some point just take it out of the folder and you’re good to go!

** This will also work with a folder within a folder.
