Microsoft reveals folders are coming to Windows Phone 8.1

Microsoft has always taken a fairly simple approach to app management on Windows Phone, avoiding folder interfaces that iOS and Android have adopted with the company’s Metro-style interface. A now removed support article over at Microsoft’s Windows Phone site has revealed the company is planning to natively support folders for apps on the Start Screen. Microsoft notes that to create folders on the Start Screen you need to have Windows Phone 8.1 Update installed on your phone, which suggests this functionality is coming in an update to Windows Phone 8.1, rather than the OS update itself. The Verge understands that Microsoft is currently in the final stages of testing its first update to Windows Phone 8.1, which is expected to debut in July or August.
