Step by step to put a Song as a Ringtone in iPhone 6 and 6 Plus
Before you start with this little tutorial I must say that the first thing we need, obviously, is to have a computer with iTunes installed , which have to open and seek music section where our songs appear. Once there we will have to select the song in MP3 you want it to sound as a ringtone when we call on our iPhone, click the right mouse button on it and select “Get Info” .
A popup window that displays information about the song opens, but we are interested in the “Options” tab. Once inside that tab we see two fields called “Home” and “End” appear , which is reflected in how long the chosen song, although both are disabled.
To create our tone we need to know exactly when time begins and I must say that at most has to have a duration of 30 seconds, but can be shorter if you want . So, we have to activate both “Start” and “End” and put what time what time will the fragment we want and accept.
The next step we have to give it back to click with the right mouse button on that song and choose “Create AAC Version” . By doing this we will see a new file that takes 30 seconds (or however long you’ve put in the previous step) appears. If your iTunes library is very large you may not find this file, but a quick way is to click on the “Recently added” within the “Playlists” menu .
Then we have to click on the new file, drag it to the desktop and then back to iTunes to delete . Do not worry, because deleting this file the original song will not disappear.Then we have to return to the desktop computer and click the right mouse button on the file you just take and choose “Rename” (“Get Info” for Mac) and change the file extension. m4a to M4r .
In case you do not get the extension in Windows appears, you will go to Team – Desktop – Organize – Folder and Search Options and there click on “View” and disable the option called “Hide file extensions for file types “. Now go forth the extension at the end of the name, and we can change it.
Finally, we can only re-drag the file with the extension M4r back to iTunes , connect your iPhone to the computer and when the “Sync” option appears we have to press “OK”. Thus, the ringtone will be passed to the device and when we go to choose the tone will be found in the list with the rest.
