The iPhone comes with a wide selection of pre-installed ringtones, but if you want something a little different you can create your own unique ringtone from an existing music file. This article will look at two methods you can use to create a ringtone on iPhone X/XS (Max)/XR.
One of the best ways to personalize your mobile phone experience is to create your own ringtone. The iPhone has a lot of inbuilt ringtones to choose from, but if you want a more unique experience, you can also create your own ringtone using pre-existing audio files that you have on your computer. For a file to be a ringtone on your iPhone, it needs to be in the m4r. format.
Turn your favorite song or other audio files into a ringtone using one of these two methods. First, we will look at how to make ringtone on iPhone X/XS (Max)/XR using iTunes, then we will move on to another method that doesn’t require iTunes.
Some Apple users prefer to use iTunes for creating ringtones. It’s not the most user-friendly option; for one thing, when you sync data via iTunes you risk wiping your iPhone of its existing data. However, if you want to use iTunes to make a ringtone, here are the steps you need to follow:
Step 1Install the latest version of iTunes onto your computer. Then connect your iPhone to your computer via USB.
Step 2Open iTunes, and select your device from the top left-hand corner of the screen. From here, make sure that ‘Manually sync files to iPhone’ is selected.
Step 3Down the left-hand side of the screen, click ‘Tones’ > choose the m4r. file you want to be your ringtone. Drag it onto your device and click ‘Sync’.
So, that’s how you use iTunes to create a ringtone on iPhone X/XS (Max)/XR – now let’s take a look at how to complete this task using a different method.
Designed to make managing files on both iOS and Android devices super easy, AnyTrans is a program allows you to create customized ringtones for your iPhone without the need for iTunes. Compared to iTunes, AnyTrans for iOS boasts the following features:
So why not download it and then follow these steps to create personalized ringtones in just a few minutes:
Step 1Install AnyTrans for iOS and connect your iPhone to the computer via USB.
Step 2Open AnyTrans and click on Device Manager at the top of the screen. Then go to the Category Page at the right of the screen.
Step 3Under the Audio, click ‘Ringtones’ – the purple icon.
Step 4Click the ‘+’ button towards the top right-hand corner of the screen. Then choose the music from your computer and click ‘Open’ to add it to your list of ringtone options. This process works with all major audio file types. Then find your desired ringtone in the list on your iPhone.
As we mentioned before, using iTunes to create ringtone on iPhone X/XS (Max)/XR doesn’t always work properly, and it runs the risk of wiping existing data on your iPhone if you aren’t careful. iTunes doesn’t allow customization of ringtones either: files must be in m4r. format to be made into ringtones.
AnyTrans, on the other hand, allows easy customization of mp3 and other audio files, so you have much more control over the personalization of your ringtone and can use any audio file you want, without having to pay for a ringtone. So why not download it and have a try.
We hope you’ve found this article helpful and that you manage to personalize your ringtone and make your iPhone unique to you.
