iOS 7.1 glitch allows stock apps to be hidden on the Home Screen

In what feels like an annual affair, somebody has once again found a glitch with the iOS Home Screen. The bug allows users to place folders inside folders on the iOS 7 Springboard, which is normally not possible. With a certain configuration of steps, the bug can also make apps disappear from the Home Screen entirely. For instance, you could hide some of the stock Apple apps (like Compass or Voice Memos) that normally can’t be removed. The apps aren’t actually deleted from your iPhone or iPad; it’s merely a visual display glitch that hides them. This means the apps will return when you reboot your iOS device. The steps to hide some apps are below, but the video demo above by iDeviceHelpus demonstrates how to do it more clearly.
