Have you been trying to figure out how to set a ringtone on an iPhone without iTunes? Well, we all know how complicated it can be to convert and transfer files to iOS devices, let alone set a specific ringtone that’s not in the default list of ringtones available to iPhone users. What’s more frustrating is that, unlike Android devices that allow users to set their favorite tracks as ringtones regardless of their format, for ringtones to work on iPhone, they have to be in M4R format.
It is also pertinent to note that while iOS users can use iTunes to add ringtones to their iPhones, this desktop tool is nothing more than a dreaded, complicated software with dozens of unnecessary steps. Even if you think you could learn how to use iTunes, you can only download it on Windows PC as Apple has discontinued iTunes for Mac.
Fortunately, there’s a solution for those of us who don’t want to spend hours learning how to use an inefficient, time-consuming, and highly complicated desktop or online tool – thanks to Softorino. The company has launched an impeccable desktop software called WALTR PRO to make the lives of iOS users marginally easier.
