“The ringtone was not copied to the iPhone because the duration is too long.”.
Therefore, 30 seconds is the best option.
We select our music track by clicking on the file in iTunes with the mouse, the track is highlighted in blue. Now we are looking for a tab:
- File. Convert. Create AAC Version
I don’t know why Apple hid this function so far, it used to be easier. right-clicked on the file and converted, now the conversion path has become a little longer.
In a couple of seconds, we get our 30 second file, with the same name as the original file. Click on this 30-second melody with the right mouse button and select. Show in Windows Explorer (Show in Finder, Mac OS users press).

Before you start, connect your iPhone to your computer and make sure there is a check mark in iTunes. Process music and videos manually.
We put the ringtone on the iPhone
The renamed ringtone in M4R format is our created ringtone for iPhone. In fact, the ringtone is ready, now you need to put it in the iPhone by syncing.
Using the mouse, grab the finished M4R file, pull it into iTunes and drop it straight into the program. Before that, it is advisable to transfer this ringtone to some of your own folder (and already pull it from it to iTunes), since it may still be useful in the future.

But when you delete this file, you need to select the button. Leave File.
If your ringtone in M4R format does not appear in Sounds, then there may be problems with the original MP3 music file, in which case try other MP3 music files. Or try to make a ringtone not in iTunes, but with the help of other services and the links to which we indicated above in the text.
If ringtones appeared in iTunes, in the Sounds section, then we put them in the iPhone:
- We take a USB cable, use it to connect the iPhone to the computer. In the top bar of the iTunes program, click on the iPhone icon that appears
- In the left side panel under the iPhone itself, click the section. Sounds
- Check the box. Synchronize sounds

If you decide to delete ringtones from the iPhone, then we read. here. Well, if you still have questions about ringtones for iPhone or you want the same beautiful ringtone name as in the last picture, then welcome to our. “Questions and answers on ringtones for iPhone”.
How the iPhone killed custom ringtones
What melody is on your call? If you are an iPhone owner, then most likely it will be a standard “Introduction”. Probably, this is one of the most popular melodies of recent years, which can compete in popularity even with the global Nokia Tune. Despite the fact that almost everyone uses it, catching up on when someone’s phone rings, we do not change it to something else. But once the standard ringtone was almost the biggest cracker, and they always tried to replace it with something more individual.
iPhone disaccustomed us to put custom ringtones on calls
You may have never thought about it, but it was the iPhone that led us all to the fact that it became something indecent to change the standard incoming call signal to a custom one. True, at first everything was not so simple.
Own music for iPhone ringtone
In the late 2000s and early 10s, putting your own music on the iPhone was a real challenge. It was necessary first to cut the song you liked, which for many was a completely non-trivial task, then change its format from MP3 to ACC so that the iPhone would recognize it, load it into the smartphone’s memory via iTunes.
Only then could it be installed on the bell, and even then, if everything was done correctly, of which it was absolutely impossible to be sure. In any case, as I remember, a lot of people got worn out at this stage. Perhaps I missed something or made a mistake in some step, because I have not done such things for about ten years, but I think that in general it is understandable how inconvenient it was.
In fact, Apple hasn’t stopped users from ringing their favorite tunes or trying to promote theirs. It’s just that the company fought piracy in this way, because the cut compositions were the subject of someone’s copyright.
Of course, there were users who were stopped by considerations of ethics, but most did not try to change the melody, because they were simply lazy, despite the fact that they did not like the standard one. It would seem that the range of iOS had about a dozen different sounds that could be selected for replacement, but for some reason no one was in a hurry to do this.
The most famous ringtone
Previously, it was important for everyone that others saw that they had an iPhone. Then it was forgotten, but custom ringtones never returned
It’s just that at some point, users realized that everyone knows the “Introduction”, and when this melody plays, it becomes clear that they are now calling the owner of the iPhone. But in those days it was considered a luxury item, and those who spent money on it did not want to deprive themselves of the views of those around them, surprised that they were in the same room with such a rich man.
This went on for several years. Users tolerated an unpleasant composition, but refused to change it, because it was believed that if they use an unloved melody, then one that is at least known to everyone. It was not customary to talk about this out loud, but everyone perfectly understood why the newly-minted iPhone owner only increased the volume of the incoming call, but at the same time did not try to replace its sound with something else.
Many years have passed since then and a lot of water has flowed under the bridge. Apple went to meet users and removed many of the restrictions of iOS, allowing you to do things that were unthinkable under Steve Jobs. However, if you have noticed, today no one is in a hurry to ring their favorite song. At some point, it even became bad manners. So what if everyone has the same melody on their calls? In the end, the signal from cars is also about the same, and nothing.
Can we say that the iPhone has killed our personality? I do not know. Despite the fact that the trend songs on the call give off something like a tube, today it is completely unacceptable to replace the standard “Entry” with them. You may be misunderstood. It’s like eating onions: everyone likes it, but making others feel this amber is somehow indecent.
Convert to ringtone format

The conversion of the file will begin, as a result of which a file with the same name, but of a shorter duration will appear.

Return to the explorer window and drag the ringtone file with the mouse to the iTunes window. (You can do it through the “File” item. By default, the converted files are in the C: \ username \ My Music \ iTunes folder). The file should appear in the list of ringtones.

- Download ringtone from the site.
- Move it to the place where ringtones are stored.
- Select a new melody in the call settings.
How to download a ringtone from the site.
When downloading a melody directly to the phone through a standard mobile browser, problems often arise. For example, by clicking on the download link, the melody is not downloaded, but played or an error occurs when opening the file. In this case, you can try downloading again through another browser that allows you to download files. Or, instead of clicking on the download link, make a long press and select the appropriate item in the pop-up menu to save the melody to your phone.
In phones on the Android operating system, such problems rarely happen, but to download mp3 files from the iPhone, you will have to install an additional application, for example, Documents from Readdle, which has a built-in browser and copes perfectly with downloading almost any file.
How to transfer a ringtone to the place where ringtones are stored.
This task is also much easier on Android phones than on iPhones. To do this, you can use almost any file manager and copy the mp3 file from the folder where you saved it when downloading, usually the “Download” or “Downloads” folder (can be nested in other folders). After that, you need to transfer, i.e. paste the copied file into a ringtone folder, usually “Ringtones”, which can also be nested in other folders.
On the iPhone, everything is much more complicated and you will need the GarageBand application, which will allow you to create a ringtone in the desired format based on the downloaded mp3 file. To do this, install and open the “GarageBand” application, create a new project, select “AUDIO RECORDER”, in the upper left click on the bricks and an empty track for your audio recording will open.

A list of your new ringtones will be stored there, where you can delete them if necessary.

To set a ringtone for a specific contact, you need to go to the settings of this contact and select a new melody there.

If you still cannot download a melody from our site directly to your phone, then try to do it using a computer. Phones on the Android operating system, when connected via a USB cable, are detected by the computer as a removable disk and you need to copy the downloaded mp3 melody to it. But before that, you need to find a folder on your phone’s hard drive, in which ringtones, usually “Ringtones”, are stored (can be nested in other folders).
