How To Add Custom Ringtones On iPhone

The choice of ringtones on Apple iPhone are very less. The official way to add your favourite ringtone to iPhone is purchase ringtones via iTunes Store. But the iTunes do not provide music or tones purchasing service in every country. So how are we able to use custom ringtones on iPhone?

Your ringtone file must be .m4r file extension because iPhone reads .m4r as ringtone file. You can find .m4r ringtone from many sources. Example: Zedge, there are tons of free iPhone ringtones for download.

  1. Look for a ringtone you like on Zedge and click Import to iTunes button to download which is in .m4r format.
  2. Open iTunes, click Edit and then Preferences.
  3. Tick Tones box and click OK.
  4. Back to iTunes main screen, the new Tones options will appear under Library. Drag and drop your .m4r ringtone into Tones folder.
  5. Plug in/connect your iPhone, select Tones tab and tick Sync Tones box. Click Apply to start syncing.
  6. When it is done, the new ringtone is already stored on your iPhone (Settings > Sounds > Ringtone).
