Put Unlimited Apps Inside The Newsstand Folder Without Any Jailbreak [Tutorial]

A neat trick shared by the folks over at iDB shows how you can use the Newsstand folder for placing unlimited number of apps inside, in addition to your news and magazine subscriptions. The trick needs a little bit of practice and once you get it right, you’ll have a scrollable Newsstand folder that can accommodate unlimited number of apps.


The trick works on iOS 6 devices, without requiring any jailbreak. Here’s what you need to do:

Step 1:

Move the Newsstand folder to the second page of your Homescreen.

Step 2:

Now place the apps you want to put inside the Newsstand on the third page of your Homescreen.

Step 3:

Press the Home button and quickly tap and hold on the app that you wish to move. When the Homescreen moves to the first page, release your hold on the screen and go back to the second page.

Step 4:

If your timing was right, you should be in wiggle mode. Now tap on the Newsstand folder to open it, and then press the Home button once to close it.

Step 5:

You should now see the app moved into the Newsstand folder. If it doesn’t work, try again and you’ll eventually get it right.

That’s it. Enjoy!

Here’s a video walkthrough of the trick as well:
