Create Ringtones Using iTunes

iTunes allows you to create ringtones of the audio tracks. The created ringtone in iTunes can be synced with an iPhone.

Creating ringtones using iTunes is a simple process. Here is how to do it:

    ■Log on to your Windows PC.
    ■Locate and double-click the iTunes icon to launch the application.
    ■If you are not already logged in, click the Sign In button from the top-left corner.

    ■In the opened Sign In to the iTunes Store box, provide your Apple ID credentials in the appropriate fields and click Sign In.

    ■On the opened window, click Library from the top-right corner.

    ■From the next interface, ensure that Songs tab is selected from the top.
    ■Under the songs list that is available, locate and right-click the desired song that you want to use to create a ringtone.
    ■From the displayed context menu, click Get Info.

    ■On the opened box, go to the Options tab.
    ■Under the Options tab, check the Start Time and Stop Time checkboxes.
    ■In the fields, provide the start and end duration of the track to extract the track’s area that you want to use as the ringtone.
    Note: Duration of the ringtone must be no longer than 30 seconds.
    ■Click OK to continue.

    ■Once this is done, right-click the song again.
    ■From the context menu, this time click Create AAC Version to create a segment of target song that you want to set for ringtone.

    Note: To revert the original song in iTunes, you must follow the steps from 7 to 10, and under the Options tab uncheck the Start Time and Stop Time checkboxes.
    ■Once the segment is extracted, locate and right-click the AAC song segment from the iTunes library.
    ■From the context menu, click the Show in Windows Explorer.

    ■In the opened File Explore box, locate and right-click the smaller segment of the track.
    ■Click Rename from the context menu.

    ■Finally, change the extension from .m4a to .m4r and press Enter.
    Note: If the extension of the file is not displayed, click the View menu from the top, and click to check the File name extensions checkbox.
    ■Once you are done, delete the song segment from the iTunes library.

    ■From File Explorer, double-click the .m4r file format to open the song segment in the Tones tab that is available at the top of the iTunes window.

    Note: If you cannot find the Tones tab at the top, right-click the mini player with the song segment from the top, and from the context menu, click Go to Current Ringtone. This will redirect you to the Tones tab.

    ■Once done, connect your iPhone with your Windows PC using the data cable that came with your iPhone.
    ■Sync the iPhone as usual and transfer the ringtone that you created to your device.
