Instructions on how to make a ringtone for iPhone in iTunes from under Windows

Как сделать рингтон для iPhone в iTunes под Windows

You can make ringtones for iPhone using special programs, for example, free iRinger, or you can also use iTunes.

However, when making a ringtone from a melody purchased from the iTunes Store, you will be asked to buy it for $ 0.99.

But a ringtone from a song that is not protected by DMR can be made absolutely free by applying a little trick.

Mac users have the ability to make ringtones using the GarageBand program.

For Windows, Apple did not release such an application.

However, making a ringtone using iTunes itself will not take so much time.

If you simply click on a song that you did not purchase in iTunes, but downloaded it from your own library, and when you right-click on it, select “Create Ringtone”, you will receive a message that you can create ringtones from songs purchased in the iTunes Store.

If the song was downloaded to iTunes as a separate file, the path should be like this: My Documents / My Music / iTunes / iTunes Music / Artist / Album /. Copy the found file to any other folder and change the extension to .m4r (the standard extension for iPhone ringtones). Double-click the left mouse button on the modified file and it will automatically appear in iTunes in the "Ringtones" section. Now you can sync it with your iPhone.
