While the new folder is being made, this is your chance to get Newsstand out of sight. As the new folder is being created you will need to quickly drag the Newsstand icon into the folder. If you are quick enough, Newsstand will go into the folder. This simple straightforward tip will work with any other folder too, so you can now place any folder into another.
