Since News Stand is an app that I may well never use, I wanted to move it into a "Preloaded" folder / group on the iPhone's launchpad.


However, try as I might, the News Stand will NOT move into a group. Anyone else seen this happen? Solution?

    There is a work around for Newstand to be added to a folder like with all the other apps:

    First, take two apps and create a folder. Second, as soon as the apps are in the folder, drag Newsstand into the folder too. As long as you’re quick enough, Newsstand will go into the folder!

    This next step is vital as if you dont follow this step then you will crash Newsstand:

    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!

    I ultimately chose not to do it and isolated this icon on its own screen on my iPhone instead.

    Turns out the News Stand icon is a special folder icon and iOS does not do nested folders.
