As an iPhone user, you will inevitably spend much time mastering how to fully utilize your iPhone. Recently, I have been interested in how to make ringtones for iPhone. There are many ringtone maker apps in the App Store, but all of them have the same deficiency. The exported audio track will not show as a ringtone on iPhone. Here in this article, I will show you how to add ringtones to the iPhone without a computer.

How to Add Ringtones to iPhone Without a Computer

After you have made a standard iPhone ringtone with a ringtone maker app, you are able to save the ringtone to the "File" App in most cases. If you are stuck at this step because that you don't want to use iTunes, try the method discussed below. You can get this ready-to-use song listed in your iPhone's ringtones by using GarageBand.

GarageBand is a professional audio editing and processing app developed by Apple. You can use it to create a fantastic audio file and share your songs. We will explore how to add ringtones to iPhone with GarageBand.

Step 1. Get GarageBand to your iPhone from App Store.

Step 2. Open GarageBand on your iPhone. Tap "Browse" at the top left corner and choose "On My iPhone" to find the ringtone you've created. Long press the file and tap "Share."
