“How do I add custom alert tones to my iPhone. I used to be able to do it by syncing itunes, but there is no tones folders in itunes anymore.”

“I have successfully added a tone to my iphone 6s but it is getting added as a ‘ringtone’ , not as an ‘alert tone’. I wanted an alert tone. While syncing or creating the .m4r file, there is no option to select the type as ringtone or alert tone. So how do i add it as an alert tone, not as a ring tone?”
