I’m a big fan of custom ringtones and despite of famous iPhone pre built ring-tones, I always prefer to create ringtones for iPhone by myself. There are many iPhone apps which let you create ringtone directly from iPhone but here we will be using iTunes to make ringtones for our iPhone. I have been using this tutorial for my iPhone4 ringtones .
iPhone ringtones can easily be created using iTunes. To create ringtone for your iPhone follow these simple steps.
So lets get started with simple 1-2-3 step and create our first ringtone. All you need to pick is a nice song, which you want to convert into ring-tone.
Create Ringtones for iPhone with 1-2-3 step:
Select a song for which you want to create ringtone. Right click and click on get info.
In the option tab , select the start and stop time for your ringtone. Keep it lower than 35 seconds.
Now right click on song and click on Convert To AAC. In this case it will create a 30 second Aac file. Now right click on newly created aac file and click on show in explorer. Rename the file with extension .m4r
For example if your song name is songs.aac rename it to song.m4r , once done, all you need is to transfer the audio file to iPhone and from settings on your device, you can select the newly created ringtone. I’m sure it’s not something tough and anyone with little computer how to knowledge can end up making unlimited songs.
You can also upload these custom tones for your iPhone on file sharing sites and forums. Do let us know if you are stuck in middle or finding it hard to create one for your phone.
