With the first beta of iOS 7 that Apple has seeded to developers last week, many are digging through the new OS and tons of new features are starting to surface. Yesterday Hamza Sood on Twitter discovered unannounced features that Apple has hidden in the settings app with new gesture, multitasking and folder options.
Hamza Sood has not yet released information on how he discovered these hidden features and we are not positive if he will or not. These hidden settings suggest that Apple is testing these unannounced features in the latest iOS 7 beta including the ability to hide pre-installed apps as well as create folders inside of folders…
This discovery of these hidden features by Hamza Sood has also created a video of some of the hidden iOS 7 settings. He originally created a video for 9to5Mac, but some people thought he was able to access this menu via a simulator. Sood later decided to post a video on Vine of the actual device and walk through of this menu. As said before we are not sure on how Sood gained access to this hidden menu, but we all do know that is unavailable to iOS users.
To everyone saying it's not iOS 7 or it's in the simulator. Also, note the blue dot tracking touches https://t.co/ZlBMAdKGbv

In addition to the already mentioned settings there are other options in this hidden menu like the ability to adjust the blur effect for Icons, Newsstand and folders. There are also several sliders and toggles that allow you to customize app icons. You can also adjust the speed of iOS animations.
We are unsure if these settings will be publicly visible in future videos and it’s very likely that these settings will remain hidden in the public release of iOS 7 this fall. Let us know your opinions below!
