How to make your own ringtone on iPhone

Whatever your reason, there is a fast and intuitive tool by Clideo that can help create your custom iPhone ringtone from any audio file.

You need neither special software nor specific editing skills. Our service works online in any browser on your smartphone, tablet, or computer. Moreover, all this is completely free if your file is up to 500 MB.

Let’s see step by step how you turn a song into a ringtone.

  1. Upload your recording

    Open Clideo’s Audio Cutter in your favorite browser and tap the “Choose file” button to add a file from your device. The tool accepts a lot of popular formats — not only MP3, but also OGG, WMA, WAV, and many others.

    Alternatively, it is possible to use your Dropbox or Google storage account to upload your recording from over there. Just tap the drop-down button and select one of the options.

    By the way, you can even use a link to some audio or even video file located on YouTube, Soundcloud, or another resource. Under the drop-down arrow, paste a URL in the required field.

  2. Do the cut

    Once your audio is processed, you will see it as the soundtrack preview with a randomly selected part.

    First, decide whether you want to extract or delete the snap. Then, drag the yellow handles to specify the start and end of your future ringtone. It is also possible to enter the exact timing manually in the “Cut from” section below.

    Additionally, when extracting, you can add fade in and fade out to the track, if you want the sound to rise in the beginning and fall in the end gradually. And if you delete the selected piece, then you will have an option to add a crossfade effect to get a smooth transition between the two segments left.

    Have a look at some helpful information about the file’s duration in the bottom panel, to make sure the track is long enough. Also, in the dropdown menu over there, you can choose the record type you finally need. We have a lot of options available — AAC, FLAC, OGG, MP3, and other audio formats.
