Most of us like to download or purchased some ringtones on iPhone because we need a unique ringtone to remind us of coming calls. But a lot of custom ringtones stored in iPhone can take up your limited storage. So transferring those ringtones from iPhone to computer or iTunes library as backup and then deleting them from your iPhone is a good way to free up storage. How to transfer your ringtones including the non-purchased ones from iPhone to computer or iTunes?
Firstly, you probably think about if iTunes can do this. But we know that iTunes only supports computer to iPhone direction. If you plan to transfer things from iPhone to computer, you need to backup your whole device. That would make the job totally complicated.
