How To Set A Song As Ringtone On iPhone XR

Share This:

The iPhone XR is Apple’s latest flagship phone and one of the best smartphones on the market. It offers a great combination of performance, battery life, and features at an unbeatable price. But what really sets the iPhone XR apart is its ability to set custom ringtones. With a few simple steps, you can make any song you own your very own personal ringtone.

First, you need to locate the song that you want to use as your ringtone within your music library. Once you’ve located it, select it and then tap “Share” in the bottom right corner of the screen. This will bring up a menu with several options, including “Ringtone”. Tap this option, and then select “Create New Ringtone” from the next menu.

You can then choose how long you want your ringtone to be by dragging the sliders up or down. When you’re happy with your selection, tap “Done” in the top right corner of the screen and your new ringtone will be saved in your Music library.

To set it as your default ringtone on an iPhone XR all you have to do is open Settings > Sounds & Haptics > Ringtone where all of your available custom tones will be listed. Simply select and save your preferred tone from here, and it will become your default tone for incoming calls or notifications.

It is also possible to set a specific song as a specific contact’s ringtone on an iPhone XR by going into Contacts > Select Contact > Edit > Ringtone > Select Tone from Library > Select Song from Music Library > Set as Default Ringtone for Contact

With these simple steps, you can easily make any song on your iPhone XR into a custom-made ringtone!

Creating a Custom Ringtone for an iPhone XR

To make a custom ringtone for your iPhone XR, you’ll need to first create your desired ringtone in an audio file format such as M4R (AAC). You can use iTunes or an online audio editor like Audacity to do this. Once you have the M4R file ready, you can then add it to your iTunes library by dragging and dropping it in. Lastly, sync your iPhone XR with iTunes, go into Settings > Sounds & Haptics > Ringtone, and select the custom ringtone from the list. That’s it! Your custom ringtone will now be available for you to use on your iPhone XR.

You can also purchase additional ringtones from the iTunes store if you don’t already have a song that you would like to use. Once selected, the song will be set as your default incoming call ringtone.
