How To Create FREE Ringtones For iPhone

Apple has finally released its stranglehold on ringtones for the iPhone. Following the latest GarageBand 8 update (4.1.1), there is a little surprise under the Share menu in the tool bar: Send Ringtone to iTunes. This allows anyone with GarageBand 8 to create a custom ringtone or use a pre-existing song to sample as a ringtone. The steps are really easy and you can have as many custom 10 second ringtones as you like. Sadly because GarageBand is only available for the Mac, creating custom ringtones is only for Mac users. If you have a Mac (or a friend who has one) you could always create ringtones for them (or ask them to make some for you).

Here are the steps:

  1. Make sure you have the latest GarageBand 8 update.
  2. Plug in your iPhone and open iTunes.
  3. Open GarageBand and select Create New Music Project.
  4. You can import a song and decide which 10 seconds you would like to use as your ringtone, make your own, or have GarageBand automatically select 10 seconds from your song.
  5. Once you have made your choice, simply select Share and Send Ringtone to iTunes.
  6. Switch back to iTunes and sync your iPhone and your new ringtone should be there.
