I made some retro iPhone ringtones a while ago…
I posted some of these iPhone ringtones on the site before but I’ve since deleted the post. Since then I’ve made a few more so I decided to create a new post which I’ll periodically update when/if I create any more ringtones.
If you haven’t installed custom ringtones on your iPhone before the process is fairly simple. You’ll need iTunes installed on your PC or laptop (I’m so sorry).
- Create a folder at %userprofile%/Music/iTunes/iTunes Media and call it Ringtones.
- Download the ringtones (right-click, save as) to the folder you’ve just created. The tones are in m4r format.
- Open the Ringtones folder you’ve just saved the tones into.
- Open iTunes and click on the phone icon in the top left of the window.
- Go to the ‘On my device’ section in the left sidebar and click on tones.
- Copy (CTRL+C) and paste (CTRL+V) the ringtone from Windows File Explorer into iTunes. You should see the ringtone appear in the right hand window.
