Many iPhone users like to set different ringtones on iPhone to distinguish calls, messages on the device, or just to identify callers without having to pick up iPhone from their pockets. As a result, you will inevitably have a lot of ringtones on the iPhone and may have different formats such as MP3 ringtones, M4R music ringtones. Considering the limited storage space on iPhone, you may want to export iPhone ringtones to the computer to free up more space for your iPhone. Another issue that some iPhone users have encountered is losing their purchased ringtones. Here's one of them.
"I just bought an iPhone 6s, and downloaded a ringtone from iTunes…I set it up and it worked fine. But today it's not listed as a ringtone and the phone reverted to a default tone. It's also not listed in my iTunes purchases. So I think I have to backup ringtones to computer. How do I transfer ringtones from my iPhone to my PC? My iPhone is synced with a computer that is no longer usable. If I sync using iTunes, it will delete the ringtones that I imported from that other PC."
