Hidden Settings in iOS 7 reveals new gestures, nested folders and more [Video]


Developer Hamza Sood has discovered hidden Settings in iOS 7, which reveals that Apple is testing additional gestures, folder and multitasking options.

The hidden Settings reveals the following features:

  • System wide edge swipe and corner swipe gestures, probably for features such as quick app switching. iOS 7 already comes with new swipe gestures to navigate back to the main menu in some of the stock iOS apps. 


  • Ability to delete pre-installed iOS apps
  • Ability to create nested folders i.e. folder within a folder.
  • Pinch to close folders
  • Options to tweak blur effects, coloring and animated speeds


Check out the video below, which shows how some of these features work:

It remains to be seen if Apple will enable any of these feature when it releases iOS 7 to the public.

    Looks like Activator! Love love love my corner swipes and taps to swap apps or open specific apps or lock the phone. I doubt it will be as encompassing as Activator is, but even half of the capability is a lot.

    I like how granular some the visual controls are, but given that none of these were offered before, it seems too good to be true. I think we might see some of those settings, but not all of them.
