Follow these 15 steps to make your own iPhone ringtones. Careful, it’s addicting!
- Open iTunes and find the song that you want to make into a ringtone.
- Listen to the song and find the part you want to use for your ringtone. Make sure to write down the exact start and stop times.
- Right-click the song and select “Get Info.”
- Click the “Options” tab.
- Type in the start time of your ringtone in the text box next to “Start Time” in the minutes:seconds format. (Ex: 3:13)
- Do the same thing for the end time in the text box next to “Stop Time.”
- Click “OK.”
- Right-click your song again and select “Convert Selection to AAC.” Wait for iTunes to convert your song. (It will create a duplicate version.)
- Right-click the ringtone and select “Delete.”
- Click on the “Keep Files” button.
- Find the file. It’s usually on my desktop, but you might also find it in your user folder under “Music > iTunes > iTunes Music” and under the band’s name. It will have a file extension of m4a.
- Replace the m4a extension of your ringtone with m4r. You can either double-click slowly to rename your file, or right-click and select “Get Info.”
- Click “Use .m4r” when prompted.
- Double-click the ringtone file and iTunes will automatically add it to your ringtones folder in your music library.
- Connect your iPhone and sync your ringtones.
