Now let's take a closer look at how to install a ringtone on an iPhone.
1. Uploading the ringtone file to iTunes
Instructions on how to put a melody on an iPhone via iTunes are described in detail in the article “How to upload music to an iphone”.
Open iTunes (you can download it for free from the official website apple.com/ru/itunes/download).
Go to the “Music” section by clicking on the notes icon in the upper left corner.
Click on “File” and in the pop-up menu that appears, select “Add File to Library”.
The uploaded file will appear in your library.
2. Limiting the length of the melody
Now you need to reduce the length of the piece of music to 40 seconds, otherwise you won't be able to put music on the iPhone's call.
This can be done using online services or special programs on the smartphone itself.
Here's how to do it in iTunes.
Right click on the name of the music file. Select “Details” from the drop-down menu.
The file properties window will open. Click the Options tab. Here, in the “start” and “end” fields, you need to indicate the fragment of the recording that you want to cut out of the entire piece of music.
The duration of a fragment should not exceed 40 seconds.
After setting the time interval, click “OK”.
Outwardly, nothing has changed.
Now you need to convert the file to ringtone format and put the song on the call.

Conversion of the file will begin, as a result of which a file with the same name, but of a shorter duration, will appear below.
Right-click on this new file and select “Show in Explorer Windows” from the drop-down menu.
An explorer window will open. Here you need to change the file extension from .m4a to .m4r. That is, change the last letter “a” to “r”. (If your extensions are not shown, then select in the explorer 'Tools – Folder Properties – View – and uncheck the' Hide extensions for registered file types' menu). You can immediately copy the resulting file to another folder where you can easily find it.
Now without closing the explorer window, return to the iTunes window and go to the “Sounds” section. To do this, click on the “…” icon and select “Sounds” in the drop-down list.
Return to the explorer window and drag the ringtone file with the mouse to the iTunes window. (You can do it through the “File” item. By default, the converted files are in the C: \ username \ My Music \ iTunes folder). The file should appear in the list of ringtones.
4. Synchronization iPhone with iTunes

Select Sounds in the left pane. In the right window, check the “Synchronize sounds” checkbox. By default, all ringtones in iTunes will be synced to iPhone. Then synchronize the device by pressing the “Finish” button.
