Method 2. How to Add Ringtones to iPhone 12 from iTunes

iTunes could help you to make a song a ringtone and then sync the ringtones to your iPhone. The only flaw of using iTunes is that it is relatively complex compared with other methods available because you need to make a ringtone by yourself.

If you prefer to make a custom ringtone on your own, follow the steps below to learn how to do it.

To add ringtones to your iPhone 12 from iTunes:

Step 1. Connect your iOS device to the computer and wait for iTunes to launch automatically.

Step 2. If the song you want to set as the ringtones is not in your iTunes library, go to "File" > "Add File to Library" to add the song to your iTunes library.

Step 3. Then click the "Device" button, go to "Summary", and check the option "Manually manage music and videos".

Step 4. Click the "Back" button and go to "Songs" > "Library". 

Step 5. Right-click the target song and choose "Song Info". In the new window, tap the "Options" tab.

Step 6. Check the "Start" and "Stop" options and set the starting/stopping point of the ringtone (less than 30 seconds).

Step 7. Go back to iTunes library, select the original song, then tap "File" > "Convert" > "Create AAC Version". Afterward, you will see the reduced version of the song.

Step 8. Right-click the shortened version and choose "Show in Windows Explorer" (or Show in Finder on Mac). 

Step 9. Copy and paste the song to your desktop and change the extension from .m4a to .m4r. Confirm your changes.

Step 10. Now go back to the iTunes Library and delete the shortened version of the song: right-click the song, choose "Delete from Library" > "Delete Song" > "Move to Recycle Bin".

Step 11. Tap the "Tones" tab, drag and drop the ringtone from desktop to iTunes. Now the custom ringtone is added to your iPhone 12.

Method 3. How to Download Free Ringtones to iPhone 12

If you don't have ringtones available on your device, you will need to download ringtones from the Internet to your iPhone. Some of the sites provide a download button for you to save the ringtones to your computer. For example:

  • https://cellbeat.com/
  • https://www.melofania.club/
  • https://www.mobile9.com/ (Registration Required)

Afterward, you can transfer ringtones from computer to your iPhone 12 and then set custom ringtone on your device.

If there is no download button available on the website, using a free video & audio downloader will help you to download the online audio files to your computer via the URL.

No matter what you are going to do, transferring downloaded ringtones to your iPhone or downloading online ringtones to your device, the iPhone transfer software introduced in method 1, EaseUS MobiMover, will help.

Method 4. How to Add Ringtones to iPhone 12 from Another iPhone

All the three ways above are useful to get ringtones to your iPhone from a computer. Actually, you can also add ringtones to your iPhone 12 from your previous iOS device.

To put ringtones to iPhone 12 from another iPhone:

Step 1. Connect your two iOS devices to the computer and run EaseUS MobiMover on it.

Allow EaseUS MobiMover to access your iPhone or iPad by tapping "Trust" on the screen and clicking "Allow" on the program window.
