Just updated to a new iPhone and want to send some ringtones from your old iPhone to the new iPhone? Read this guide to see how to transfer ringtones from iPhone to iPhone with or without iTunes.
If you changed to a new iPhone 12 and want to share ringtones or other data between iPhones, here you are in the right place. In the past, iTunes might be the first choice when it comes to syncing iPhone data. However, since iTunes 12.7, Apple has removed the ability to manage ringtone. You can’t use iTunes 12.7 to sync ringtone anymore. Then how to transfer ringtones from old iPhone to new iPhone?
Worry not. In this post, we will show you simple ways to transfer ringtones between two iPhones (iPhone 12 & iOS 14 supported). And also tells you the iTunes way if you are still using the older iTunes version. Let’s get it on.

While if you are still using the older iTunes versions (iTunes 12.6 and earlier), you can still apply iTunes to transfer ringtones from iPhone to iPhone. And for the new iTunes versions on 12.7 and later, you can still sync music, movies, TV shows, and audiobooks.
But before taking this method, you need to notice that the whole process is about transferring the ringtones on one iPhone to iTunes library, and then syncing to another iPhone from iTunes library. There are two major problems you probably care about.
Actually, you can’t airdrop ringtone between iPhones. Since the iPhone’s built-in operating system does not support the transfer of ringtone files, nor Bluetooth.
You can go to Settings > Click Sounds & Haptics > Choose Ringtone, here you can view the default ringtones on iPhone. Also, the transferred and customed ringtones will be saved here. You can choose one and set it as your ringtone.

Step 3. The song will be set as a ringtone by default. You can drag the slider to choose your favorite period. After completing the customizing process, click the “Audition” button to listen to the ringtone. If you like it, click the “Import to Device” button and it will be added to the ringtones list on your iPhone.
