Hide Newsstand in iOS 7 The Easy Way

One of the more sought after articles on Macdaily is a small iOS tip, it’s how to Hide Newsstand Without Jailbreaking! It outlines how to use a utility in older iOS softwares to remove Newsstand from a homescreen and put it where it belongs. Hidden in a folder with mistfit apps.

With the introduction of iOS 7 that has changed. No special super fast thumbs or jailbreaks are required. Apple, after years have heard the complaint and made it right.

All you have to do is drag the Newsstand icon into a folder! Well that was darn easy.


With iOS 7, Apple has given in to a request that is older than myself. Since Newsstand was introduced, users were pissed at the impossible task of removing an app that they (myself included) have never used into a folder to save that sacred homescreen space.

Fear no more – hide that son of a gun!
