How to Set a Song as my Ringtone on iPhone

Posted by RecoveryTool , Apr 16, 2022

"I got a new iPhone. How can I set a song purchased from the iTunes store as a ringtone? The purchased ringtone is not in the sound but the music tab. Can anyone help me?"
If you need to put a song as a ringtone on your iPhone, you can find the answer in this user guide. But a ringtone doesn't have to be a song, and it can be any content audio file. And it's worth noting that Apple music or songs cannot be set as ringtones on the iPhone because they are protected. Therefore, you need to have a DRM-free audio file to set it as a ringtone. Now let RecoveryTool show you how to make a ringtone on iPhone.

Part 1: How to set a song as a ringtone on iPhone

If you don't have an audio or song clip available yet, you'll need to convert it before you can choose it as a ringtone on your phone. And RecoveryTool Video Editor is one of the best ringtone converters, which can help you convert videos or files of any format into ringtones. To change your song to a ringtone, you need to follow these steps:
1. Download and install this format converter on your computer.
2. After clicking the "+" icon to add a song, tap the drop-down button next to "Convert All to:".
