Part 1: How to Create iPhone App Folders
After Apple updates to iOS 4, you can organize iPhone, iPad and iPod touch apps by folders, which allow you to neaten up handhold desktop and group similar apps together. For instance, now with a decent app folder, you can put all of your games into a single place and have them take up just one icon on the screen, rather than take up pages of icons.

Here is how to do it:
1. To create an app folder, you'll need at least two apps to put in the folder. Identify the two.
2. Tap and hold the app until all apps start shaking. This is the same as is used to rearrange apps.
3. Drag one of the apps onto the other. This will create the folder. At the bottom of the screen, you'll see the two apps and a name for the folder.
4. To delete an iPhone app folder, simply drag all the apps out of it.
Part 2: How to Keep App Folders after Restoring an iPhone
The arrangement of your app icons and folders on your iOS device is stored on the device and also forms part of the backups made of your device made by iTunes or to iCloud. If you connect your iOS device to another iTunes library, you should see the app and folder arrangement displayed on the Apps screen in your iTunes Device settings even without the "Sync Apps" option selected.
If you ensure that every app currently on the iOS device is selected for synchronization, the app arrangement and folder layout is preserved as well. In fact, this arrangement will actually be preserved as much as possible regardless of whether you choose to resync all of your applications or not.
Restoring a device from an iTunes or iCloud backup will also restore the arrangement of your applications in much the same manner. Note that this is the only way to automatically transfer an app layout to another iOS device.
