How to set a song as your ringtone on iPhone

Girl sets custom ringtone on her iPhone.

Tired of the preset ringtones on your iPhone and want to return the good old days of custom ringtones? We've got you covered.

With iOS 14 setting a song as your ringtone on iPhone is easier than ever before. It does involve a bit of work, though.

To set a song as your ringtone it needs to saved in your Files app or must be purchased and downloaded on your phone. You can't use songs that you just have saved on Apple Music or another streaming service such as Spotify.

The easiest way to do this is to pick out your favorite song and save it to files using an mp3 converter or buy it in the iTunes Store. Then you'll have to create a loop of that song in GarageBand and export it as a ringtone. Don't worry, the process is quite easy, and we'll talk you through the steps.

First, download the song you'd like and save it to your iPhone. The easiest way to do this is probably by downloading the song you'd like from YouTube, and converting that to an mp3. Click the link above if you need help with that.

Follow the steps below to set a song as your ringtone on iPhone.

    • Wait, Burning Man is going online-only? What does that even look like?
      You could have been forgiven for missing the announcement that actual physical Burning Man has been canceled for this year, if not next. Firstly, the nonprofit Burning Man organization, known affectionately to insiders as the Borg, posted it after 5 p.m. PT Friday. That, even in the COVID-19 era, is the traditional time to push out news when you don't want much media attention. 
      But secondly, you may have missed its cancellation because the Borg is being careful not to use the C-word. The announcement was neutrally titled "The Burning Man Multiverse in 2020." Even as it offers refunds to early ticket buyers, considers layoffs and other belt-tightening measures, and can't even commit to a physical event in 2021, the Borg is making lemonade by focusing on an online-only version of Black Rock City this coming August.    Read more...
