How to Set Custom Ringtones in iPhone Without iTunes

If you are an Apple user, you must have an idea of how difficult it is to manage your device’s data; from downloading songs to setting ringtones and transferring them to your iPhone, everything has to be done through the app called iTunes. And we all know iTunes makes things complicated for the users as it is paid, slow and only has a few ringtones available.


Now, you must be wondering, how to set ringtone in iPhone without iTunes? Well, fortunately for you, there is an alternative app for iTunes called WALTR 2; It can help you set custom Ringtones in the iPhone without the need for iTunes. So, without further wasting your time, let’s get on with our guide on how to set ringtone in iPhone without iTunes.

How to set ringtone in iPhone Using WALTR 2

Step 1


The first step to set a custom ringtone is to download the WALTR 2 Software from the Softorino Website and follow the on-screen installation instructions to install it on your Computer (the app is compatible with both macOS and Windows).


Step 2


After installing the application WALTR 2, launch it on your computer and establish a connection with Your iPhone via a standard USB cable. There is another Wireless way to connect, but you need to put both the phone and the Computer on the same WI-FI network for that.


For the Wireless way to work, you need to establish a connection at least once through the USB cable.

Step 3


Now, you have to transfer your desired music file to your phone via the drag and drop feature. To give you a better understanding, you need to drag the music file which you want to set as a ringtone into the WALTR 2 interface and then drop it.


Wait for a few seconds, your music file or track will be transferred to your phone. There is also a progress bar at the bottom of the app’s interface that shows how much time the file is going to take in order to transfer.


While Transferring, you must have a question that Apple only supports m4r format for the Ringtones. Do not worry, WALTR 2 changes the format of your file into the device-compatible format during the transfer, which means the format of the file does not matter.

Step 4


After you are done transferring the file, you need to set that track as your RIngtone. For that, all you have to do is go to your phone’s Settings > Sounds > Ringtones and then select that song as your iPhone’s ringtone.


That is how easy it is to set a custom ringtone in your iPhone without using Itunes. However, this process only included the files that are already on your computer; if you want to make the ringtone from scratch, Softoriono also has software for that called Softorino YouTube Converter 2.
