    Ince the new iOS was brought out, has the maximum number of apps allows within a folder changed?
    I was moving apps around, and I placed an app into a folder which already had 12 apps in. It accepted it and I tried putting more in, there are now 15 in there.
    Is there a new maximum allowed? I am only asking because it is an ex jail broken iPad.
    Thanks

    Hi Crazyhorse - my understanding was that up to 20 apps could be placed into a folder (don't have a 'jailbroken' iPad) - I've never gone to that limit yet so cannot vouch for the statement - so not sure if your last statement has an impact? You might want to do a restart/reset to see if that helps - let us know - good luck!

    Yeah, I have done the reboot already. It is not jailbroken now, I was wondering if anything (jailbreak software) had been left behind on my iPad. I know it's very unlikely, that's why I asked if the number of apps allowed had changed.
    I used to run on iOS 4.3.3, and used a jailbreak tweak that allowed you to have any number of apps in a folder. iOS 4.3.3 only allowed 12 apps within a folder as standard. So, with iOS 5 is it now 20?
    Thanks for your reply :)

    The iPad has always allowed you to put 20 apps in a folder, while the iPhone/iPod Touch have allowed 12. This has been since iOS 4.2.1.
