Are you Looking for a way to add m4r ringtones on iPhone without iTunes? Read along to find a new alternative to add m4r to iPhone 12/11/X/8/7/6s without iTunes directly.

Let’s face this: You bought an expensive iPhone for yourself — or received it as a gift from your loved one. You really want to add custom ringtones to your new iPhone — but find it extremely annoying to do that — due to its inability to let you do anything outside Apple.

That is terrible!

iTunes usually is thought to have been used to add customized ringtones to iPhone, but users hate it because of its complexity. In addition, iPhone offers limited options for choosing your ringtones.

But, what exactly is M4R? M4R is the file extension for audio files and is created by Apple.

Is it feasible to add M4R ringtones on iPhone with iTunes?

The process with iTunes is painstaking. You first need to push the music file to the computer — crop it and convert it to AAC format via iTunes, then rename its extension from m4a to m4r format — and finally, sync it from iTunes to iPhone as a ringtone. But, you can no longer use iTunes on the computer to sync m4r to iPhone. Since iTunes 12.7.3 had removed the tone and app tab.

That’s one heck of iTunes—how can you then add your favorite music to your iPhone?

Fortunately, finally, we have found a tool to do this job easily. It works like a charm! Just connect the iPhone with your computer, drag and drop the file in, and voila!
