Creating an iPhone Ringtone

iPhone ringtone costs more than the real song version of it.  Man, that sucks!  Here’s how to create one from your favorite MP3.

  1. Open iTunes
  2. Find the song you want to convert.
  3. Find the part you want to use as ringtone.  Ringtone has a limit of 40 seconds.  You can start from chorus or beats if you want.  Note the start and end time.
  4. Right click the song, and click on the Get Info
  5. Select the Options tab and check the Start and End time
  6. Type in the start and end time.  Must be less than or equal to 40 seconds.
  7. Click OK
  8. Right click the song and click on Create AAC Version.
  9. iTunes will create another song (your ringtone) that has 40 seconds playable time.
  10. Right click that song, and click on the Get Info
  11. Right click on the path of the file, and click on Show in Windows Explorer if you are using Windows.
    • If you are using Mac, open the file folder until you find that song.  Use the path as your guide.
  12. Rename that song from *.m4a to *.m4r file extension.
  13. Double click on the renamed file sound to import it to iTunes as a ringtone.
