How to Transfer Ringtones to iPhone using iTunes 12.7 or later
Step 1: Connect your iPhone or iPad to your computer and open iTunes.
Step 2: Click on the device icon in the top left corner of iTunes. If it’s not there, then it means that iTunes hasn’t detected your device. Make sure that the lightning USB cable works properly.
Step 3: If you don’t see the sidebar in iTunes, you should unhide it by clicking on the View menu, then Show Sidebar. Skip this step if the sidebar is already present
Step 4: From the sidebar of iTunes, click on Tones. Now drag and drop the .m4r ringtone onto the Tones section in iTunes.
- If you don’t see the Tones section, then drag and drop the ringtone onto the On My Device section in the sidebar. A new Tones section will appear in the sidebar showing the ringtones on your iPhone.
Step 5: Once the ringtone appears in iTunes, it will also be transferred to the connected iPhone.
