Creating a ringtone for the iPhone is done with a few simple handgrips. It only takes a relatively short time, iTunes, the desired title and, of course, an iPhones.
- First, you start iTunes and select the song you want from your media library, which you want to use as a ringtone.
- Clicking the right mouse button will highlight the title and select the “Information” option.
- Select the “Options” tab and set the start and end time of the ringtone, which can last up to 30 seconds.
- After pressing the “OK” button, select the song with the right mouse button again and click “Create ACC version.”
- The new file is also selected with a right-click and select “Information.”
- The pop-up shows in the first tab in the lower column the location where the file is stored. The file extension is “m4a”.
- Now go to the named location and change the suffix “m4a” to “m4r”.
- After pressing the “OK” button, a warning message appears, which is confirmed by “YES.”
- Drag and drop this new file into iTunes.
- Next, you need to connect your iPhone to your iTunes library. In the upper menu bar click on “Sounds” and ticks “Synchronize Sounds.”
- After syncing with the iPhone, select “Settings” and then “Sounds” on the iPhone.
- In the following menu, select “Ringtones” and find the self-paced ringtones under the heading “Personal” and the already pre-programmed ones from Apple (overwritten with “Normal”)
- Tap the desired track to set it and play it promptly.
- Via the arrow at the top left, you return to the previous menu, where you can adjust the volume for the ringtone.
These ringtones can also be set as alarm sounds.
(Steps 1 – 11 must have been done for this)
- On the iPhone choose the “Alarm clock” app.
- By pressing the plus sign in the upper right, you can enter another menu.
- There you select “sound,” which leads to the same menu as in step 12.
- By executing steps 12 – 14, you now select the desired ringtone as an alarm tone.
