I'm an iPhone se 2 user. I'm trying to transfer some custom ringtones to the new iPhone with my Windows PC and Mac, but constantly failed. I couldn't find the "Tones" tab on both the music library and my device. Please help me to drop the m4r files savely in my se 2. Many thanks in advance!
How to add ringtones to your iPhone SE2
Make sure your iPhone is connected to your Windows computer, and open the iTunes app on your computer.
Press the tab key until you reach the iPhone button, and press enter.
Now press the tab key until you come to the library side bar menu.
Cursor all the way down until you find tones, and press enter.
Now press the tab key until you find the tones Treeview.
This is where you need to be to copy/paste in your M4R files.
When you hear the sound effect that indicates that files have been successfully added, go to your iPhone, settings, sounds and haptics, and under ringtones or text alerts, choose from your custom ringtones that you have added.
Hope this helps!
Ringtones with iPhone 13
Does anyone know how to put ringtones on your phone now? The new iTunes and the new iPhones will not let you add ringtones anymore. You can’t put them on to the phone. I don’t mind buying them from Apple and I understand that that’s what they want you to do but Almost every song that I look up does not have a ringtone to it
Music To Ringtone
Said application (linked below), is officially the easiest program for adding/converting Ringtones from popular formats to either M4R or importing them into Garageband for adding to your phone:
NB. You can remove adverts with a 1 time In-App Purchase.
Garage band or iCloud restore of backup
You can use MusicToRingtone to generate ringtones from your music library or iOS files.
If you have previously done that already, you can just go directly to GarageBand and double tap and hold on any of the files and select ringtone and export from there, this is only for users who do not want to restore from an iCloud/iTunes backup.
Please note that restoring from iCloud backup or an iTunes backup will transfer all the ringtones you have created on GarageBand, iTunes or purchased ringtones from iTunes store, this means that any ringtones you have previously saved to your iPhone will be transferred automatically to your new phone.
If you don’t have enough iCloud storage to back up your phone, I would suggest that you go connect your phone to your computer, open iTunes, repeatedly press the tab key until you hear iPhone, next, continuously press the tab button until you get to back up now, wait for it to finish, next, connect your new phone and press restore on the computer, now the magic happens, all your data will be transferred except for your Apple Music library which you can download the songs separately
Not so long time ago I was trying to transfer my custom ringtones to an iPhone from a Mac with macOS Monterey. No guide from the Web had helped, so I found the solution by myself, although it took me about two hours.
First, open the Music app. Then go to Finder and move VO cursor on an .m4r file, and press «VO + ,». Next, return to the Music, move to the sidebar and look for «Devices», «Your iPhone name». Obviously, the iPhone has to be connected to the Mac, either via USB or Wi-Fi (I’d prefer the first way though). So, drop the ringtone file on «Your iPhone name» roll in the sidebar (while you are in the sidebar, it’s important), and here you are. That’s all. As I remember, you even wouldn’t have to sync your iPhone, because the ringtone would already appear in the Sounds» menu in the Settings app.
