How To Make iPhone Ringtone or iPad Ringtone

What is iTunes?

iTunes is an audio playback program developed by Apple Computer. You can use iTunes to import songs from CDs as well as other audio files from your hard drive.
The iPhone, along with all iOS devices, uses AAC (Advanced Audio Coding) as the default codec for audio files. The file extension for such audio files is .m4a. So when you are listening to a track purchased from iTunes or ripped from CD using iTunes default settings, you are listening to a .m4a. Ringtones simply use the AAC codec but with a different file extension – .m4r. It is most likely that Apple specified .m4r as opposed to .m4a for ringtones in order to exert some control over the use of such audio files.
Here you can create a ringtone for any Apple product such as Iphone, Ipad and can set it for any specific contacts as Ringtones, Alert tones etc… I am going to explain you the step by step process of creating a ringtone for your iPhone & iPad. Follow the step by step process in creating it.

what is the maximum length of ringtone for iPhone

iPhone ringtones cannot be longer than 40 seconds. It’s not a carrier setting it’s a phone setting. Max I’ve seen is 30 seconds but there may be a way to get around that. I think that the file format .m4r has to be cut down to 40 seconds to work with the iPhone. Apple limits all ringtone files to 40 seconds. Any ringtones longer than this limit will not sync to an iOS device using iTunes.

  • First of all, Select a song from PC and select the length of the song. And it should not be greater than 40 seconds. By using specific software (Mp3 cutter) or convert it online from here.
