M4R is the specific file extension for the iPhone iPad ringtone. Normally you can get your favorite m4r ringtones from iTunes Store and App Store. If the m4r files are stored in iTunes library, you need to transfer them to your iPhone X/8/7/6s/6, and then set it as a ringtone.

But since iTunes has upgraded to Version 12.7, Apple announced that iTunes would just focus on music, movies, TV shows, podcasts, and audiobooks. It means that iTunes has removed the app and tone tab, and you cannot view the m4r files in iTunes library. Neither does m4r ringtone file transferring.
