How to Convert Your Music to iPhone Ringtone

Are you already tired of listening to the default iPhone ringtones and want to set your favorite music as your new iPhone ringtone? If yes, then your obvious choice would be visiting the iTunes application, but the problem is iTunes can be very slow sometimes, and also you need to pay every time you buy a ringtone.

Now you must have this question: Is there a way to convert your favorite songs from MP3 to iPhone ringtones? Fortunately for you, it is possible with third-party apps, and in this article, we are going to discuss some apps that can help you set your desired song as your new iPhone ringtone in just a few seconds.

Setting Ringtones via WALTR PRO

WALTR PRO is a dedicated all-in-one data transfer tool that can help the user transfer songs to their iOS devices without the need for iTunes or any other helping-hand application. Here is a step by step guide that shows how easy you can transfer your song to iPhone and set it as a ringtone:

  • Step 1

The first step is to download the application from the Softorino website and then follow the instructions on the screen to install the software on your computer successfully. The application is free to download and gives you a free one-day trial to test out the features. However, after that, you need to buy a paid subscription to use it.

  • Step 2

Now launch the application and connect your iPhone to the computer via a USB, or you can also connect wirelessly through the Wi-Fi, which the company introduced for the ease of users.

For the Wi-Fi feature to work, you need to put both of the devices on the same network, and also you need to make sure you have once connected your phone to the computer via the standard USB cable.

  • Step 3

After establishing a connection, go to your computer’s library and find the song that you wish to set as your new iPhone ringtone. After you have found the music track, drag and drop it on the WALTR PRO interface, and the application will take care of the rest.

If you are worried about the format of the video, then you do not have to because you can throw any format file into the WALTR PRO interface, and it will convert the file into the apple compatible format during the transfer process.

  • Step 4

Now, you need to wait for a few seconds in order for the track to get transferred to the iPhone. And in case you want to see the progress of the transfer, there is a progress bar at the bottom of the WALTR PRO interface that shows how much time the files will take to move.

After you see the “Done” message on the screen, go to your iPhone’s settings > Sound > Ringtones > find the track you just transferred using the WALTR PRO application and set that track as your new ringtone.
