How to turn any audio file into an iPhone ringtone

Ringtone is the thing that you always want to make your own custom from a music file, video or TV commercial. In the iTunes store, tones collection is good, but the problem is I have an music that have a brilliant voice between 20-50 seconds and cropping is the only way to get that music as my phone ringtone.

The default audio encoding of iPhone ringtones is AAC (Advanced Audio Coding) and tones are stored in iOS device in MPEG-4 (m4r) file format. You can easily convert any music file format to m4r, but not easy to set that audio file as an iPhone ringtone.

There are two ways to create your own custom ringtone for your iPhone: iPhone app or Syncios software. Here both ways required PC and make sure you’ve installed iTunes on your PC to make work third-party software.

Using iPhone app

Using the app, you only can make ringtones from music, but can’t set as iPhone ringtone directly from the device. You need to use a PC to sync created ringtone to your tones library.
