How to set any sound as a ringtone on an iPhone, the easy way!

iPhone ringtone!

iPhones have always been very unresourceful in terms of usability as per one’s own liking. Apple, the company that produces those beautiful blobs of hardware is quite a lot focused on extreme security. That may be one of the reasons most businessmen and corporates prefer an iPhone over an Android counterpart. To know in detail why iPhones are better than their Android counterparts, check out this article that I wrote some while ago.

Now as we are headed towards a more modern and an open source world, even the most conservative ones need some change. As technology is becoming the part and parcel of life, being able to control it feels equally important.

Although, today I am gonna break that barrier of extra control and show you how to set any sound as an iPhone ringtone. For those who are not acquainted with the Apple ecosystem, you should know that Apple doesn’t allow its users to set anything else as a ringtone except for what’s already available in the settings. Additionally, if you ever wanna set a ringtone out of the range of those worn out default options, you’ll have to actually buy them from the iTunes store.

What are you waiting for?

I am gonna show you the easiest method to set any ringtone that you want. Although, these are the pre-requisites.

  • A PC
  • An internet connection to download a desirable ringtone.
  • A software: SynciOS.

Downloads:

  1. iTunes (Required for working of SynciOS. If you have iTunes already installed, ignore)
  2. SynciOS: Mac, Windows
  3. Ringtones (This is a website from where you can download some dank ringtones)

Steps:

  • Download your favorite ringtone from the website link given above.
  • Save it to your desktop preferably.
  • Connect your iPhone to the PC or Mac
  • Open SynciOS
  • After it detects the iPhone, go to the Toolkit tab on the toolbar. It should look like this:

Though this method was displayed on a Windows PC, the process is the same for a Mac as well.
