How to set up iPhone ringtone with iTunes

If you use iTunes to store favourite songs and soundtracks, you can easily turn a song from iTunes into a ringtone. First, open iTunes on your computer and choose a song or audio file. Then right click on the song and on “Get Info” menu.

In the “Options” menu you can set up the start and the end time of the song by checking the boxes and defining the exact time. To apply the settings, click OK and then select that song. Go to “File” menu and “Convert” option, click on “Create AAC’’ version.

In your list of songs on iTunes, a new song will appear with the same name but different length. When you click on the song with the right mouse click, you will see the option “Show in Finder”. You will see that the song has a .m4a file extension. What you need to do is to rename that extension to be .m4r. However, don’t rename the file name, just the extension. That steps actually converts a song into a ringtone.

Now, you need to open iTunes again and delete the new short song you created. But don’t move the song to Trash, keep the file in iTunes.

The last step is to go back to Finder and select the .m4r and that ringtone will be automatically moved to iTunes Tone Library. Finally, sync all tones by connecting iPhone to iTunes.

How to set up iPhone ringtones without iTunes
