How to Convert MP3 to an iPhone Ringtone

Every iPhone user has a favorite track. So, why not create your own ringtone by extracting a short piece from a pop song or a jazz tune? There are several ways to make a ringtone for the iPhone, but not all are simple and straightforward. Movavi Video Converter will prove to you that it can be easy and fast!

With Movavi Video Converter, you can easily convert MP3, WMA, WAV, AIFF, and other music formats to the iPhone ringtone format (M4A). It’s also possible to extract sound from a video in MP4, AVI, MOV, or other formats and make a ringtone from it. You don’t need to worry about any technical issues – just download the converter and follow the easy step-by-step instructions.

Install the MP3-to-Ringtone Converter

Once you've downloaded the distribution file, open it and follow the setup instructions on your computer screen. You'll be guided through the whole process. After a few minutes, the installation will be completed and you can run the program.

Add Audio Files

Click the Add Media button on the left-hand side of the program window and choose Add Audio. Select the file you want to convert to an iPhone ringtone and add it to the program, or simply drag the file into the working area.

Choose the Required Preset

Click Audio in the bottom part of the interface and find the Audio for Apple preset group. Click it and choose Ringtone for iPhone from the drop-down list.

Trim the Audio (Optional)

iPhone ringtones are supposed to last no more than 40 seconds. Movavi Video Converter will trim the song automatically if you convert it right after step 3. In this case, the first part of the track will be saved as your ringtone.

If you want to use any other part of the song as the ringtone, you’ll need to trim the fragment yourself. Click Edit and the Trim tab in the editing window will open. If you just want to cut the clip into two parts (this works for cutting fragments both from the beginning and the end of the tune), put the slider to the position at which you need to cut the track. Click the Cut button, select the fragment you don't need, and hit Delete fragment.

If you need a fragment from the middle of the track, put the slider to the point where you want your ringtone to start and click Cut. Then put the slider to the place where you want your ringtone to end and click Cut once again. Now your track is divided into three parts. Click each unwanted part and select Delete fragment, so you can keep the one you want.

Once you’ve cut out the fragment you want, you’re ready to save the result!

Convert and Save the Ringtone

Check the Save to field to make sure your files are saved to the right folder. You can specify another location by clicking the Folder icon if you wish. Then click Convert to start processing. When the conversion is complete, the destination folder will open automatically.

Transfer the Ringtone to Your iPhone

Open iTunes and connect your iPhone to the computer. Wait until your iOS device is identified. Drag the ringtone you’ve created with Movavi Video Converter into the On My Device area of iTunes to copy the file to your smartphone. Your ringtone has now been added to iTunes.

Congrats, now you know how to make ringtones for iPhone with Movavi Video Converter! Change your custom ringtones to match your mood!
