There was a time when everyone had the custom ringtones that they’d use to stand out in a crowd, to really make their phone their own. But that pretty much went out the window when iPhones became the norm.
Now, every time an iPhone rings in the room, everyone panics, thinking it’s their phone! There’s no way to differentiate who’s phone it is… or is there? There is!
You can make your own, custom iPhone ringtone that sets you apart!
Now, before you think that this will be some super science-y project, it’s not. The whole process is actually fairly simple!
All you need to do is follow a few simple steps, and ta-daa, you’ll have your own custom ringtone on your iPhone!
Understanding iPhone Ringtones
The way the Apple OS is built makes everything seem super limited, and it feels like there’s no effective way that you can use to create your own ringtones easily; there isn’t even an option to set a song from your library into a ringtone!
But that’s not just to be annoying, and there’s actually a reason for it!
The iPhone Music player, and the iPhone ringtones, both support different formats. While the Music player will play MP3 files without a problem, the ringtones will have to be an M4R file. Otherwise, the ringtone just won’t show up in your ringtones gallery even if you transfer a file there.
However, that doesn’t mean that none of your MP3 files can become a ringtone; you just need to know the conversion from MP3 to iPhone Ringtone! And that can be done using a ringtone maker/converter, like iRingg.
Creating custom ringtones using iRingg
If you’re looking for a one-stop-shop solution to all of your iPhone ringtone problems, then iRingg is the program you need to go for. iRingg makes the entire process super easy and automates almost all of the steps for you!
To get started, you need to download iRingg from the Softorino website. The website will download the correct version of the software depending on the OS you’re using, and once it’s done, it’ll be installed, and you’ll see an icon pop up on your homepage.
If you’re a Mac user, you’ll be prompted to move the downloaded file to the Applications folder; just drag and drop the file over!
And it’ll be ready to use immediately!
From then on out, things are easy! All you need to do is download the audio file you want onto your computer. It will usually download in an MP3 file, which is fine since iRingg will be converting it anyway.
Then, you can either connect your iPhone to iRingg using your USB or, if your iPhone and your computer are on the same Wi-Fi network, it’ll show up on the iRingg main page as well.
Pick whichever method you like best; the USB transfer will be faster than the Wi-Fi one, so if you want a quick fix, go for that one instead!
Once the device is connected, you can import the audio file you want to use as a ringtone and edit it with iRingg. You can either keep the entire audio file or pick a 30-second window.
The 30-second window is the recommended option.
When you’ve got the window decided, you can add whatever effects you want to the ringtone. These can be simple effects like fade-in and fade-out or more advanced effects from their effects library.
Once you’ve done all of the edits you wanted, click the export button. This will process your audio file into a ringtone, and it’ll be ready to send over to your iPhone!
After the file has been processed, you can choose to save the ringtone on your computer or push it to the iPhone. To send the ringtone to the iPhone, click the “Push to iPhone” option.
The reason why the option says “Push” and not “Send” is because it does two things here. Send the file to the iPhone, and push it to the right place!
And that’s it! Your newly made ringtone will automatically show up in the “Sounds” section of your iPhone! And just like you chose from the default ringtones, you can select the one you made from the library here, ready to be used!
- Easy to navigate through the program
- Beginner Friendly
- Almost everything is automated
- Can use any format you want; it’ll automatically convert it.
- Wi-Fi transfers are slightly slow
Making your ringtone on an iPhone isn’t a task that’s as hard as it sounds.
Especially when you use a program like iRingg, you can make the whole process super simple and have whatever audio you want as your own custom ringtone!
The program works well, and not just in a “gets the job done” way, but in a way that makes you want to create fun custom ringtones all day long!
