How to Make iPhone Ringtones

Follow these 15 steps to make your own iPhone ringtones. Careful, it’s addicting!
  1. Open iTunes and find the song that you want to make into a ringtone.
  2. 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.
  3. Right-click the song and select “Get Info.”
  4. Click the “Options” tab.
  5. Type in the start time of your ringtone in the text box next to “Start Time” in the minutes:seconds format. (Ex: 3:13)
  6. Do the same thing for the end time in the text box next to “Stop Time.”
  7. Click “OK.”
  8. Right-click your song again and select “Convert Selection to AAC.” Wait for iTunes to convert your song. (It will create a duplicate version.)
  9. Right-click the ringtone and select “Delete.”
  10. Click on the “Keep Files” button.
  11. 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.
  12. 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.”
  13. Click “Use .m4r” when prompted.
  14. Double-click the ringtone file and iTunes will automatically add it to your ringtones folder in your music library.
  15. Connect your iPhone and sync your ringtones.
