Custom Ringtones with iPhone and MacOS Catalina
I just got a renewed iPhone XS – I don’t like restoring from backup so I was trying to figure out how to load my m4r ringtones onto my phone.
Firstly – if you don’t know how to make your own m4r ringtones look at this article
On Catalina the difference is you need to open music (not iTunes).
step 5 – right click -> save as AAC – option isn’t there. You have to select the song and go to File pulldown -> convert Create AAC Version.
step 8 – double clicking or trying to add to the music app doesn’t work anymore
I found this in the iOS13 beta
Basically you can drag and drop into the iPhone title bar in finder.
One of the comments mentions you may have to have manage manually your media by checking the box
But this worked for me. The ringtones showed up in sound and haptics area of settings.
