Transfer Songs to iPhone without iTunes Syncing
Tired of hearing the same default ringtone and hurrying to check your iPhone? Try to use a custom ringtone, getting yourself out of embarrassment.
iPhone comes with default ringtones that are easy to set through the 'Sounds & Haptics' option given in the settings on your device. But if you're using an iPhone 12, you'll find that Apple hasn't provided any new addition of ringtones yet.
Though Apple's Opening ringtone has become a common favorite sound of iPhone users, many prefer to have something different than available default ringtones. Having custom ringtones is one of the best ways to sprinkle some personality into your iPhone. Also, you can enjoy all kinds of music and audio files you love when getting incoming calls.
Unfortunately, up to now, Apple doesn't offer a built-in feature to directly add ringtones to iPhone 12 from the existing music library on your device. In this scenario, we'd like to introduce you to several efficient tools and share the specific steps for helping you add custom ringtones to your iPhone 12 easier than ever.
It should be no surprise that iTunes is a useful software among Apple users. Aside from a media library allowing you to download millions of music tracks, it's also a mobile device management utility that helps you manage the files on your iOS device. With iTunes on your Windows PC (or Mac running macOS 10.14 and the earlier), you can download songs you love, and sync content between your computer and iPhone.
Note: iTunes will only recognize and sync a ringtone file less than 40 seconds with 'm4r' extension. Make sure your audio file won't be longer than 40 seconds, then follow the steps to convert and sync the ringtone to your iPhone 12:
After that, the m4r ringtone is in the 'Ringtone' on your device already. Set it as your new ringtone on iPhone 12 by accessing 'Settings' > 'Sounds & Haptics' > 'Ringtone'. Once done, you can hear your favorite sound every time you get a call.
Although iTunes is a common solution known to many Apple users to sync data across devices, sending files like songs or ringtones is quite a complex process with it, which may force you to look for an easier way to add ringtones to your iPhone 12. Therefore, we'll introduce you to a one-stop solution, iPhone Data Transfer, which is a light desktop app allowing you to transfer and manage all kinds of files among your devices.
