Manually adding ringtones to your iPhone doesn’t have to be a strenuous process but applications like iTunes and GarageBand – with more than a dozen steps – make it so. If you’re wondering how to set a ringtone on your iPhone without iTunes, you’ve come to the right place because we’ve discovered software that makes the process seamless with only three simple steps.
WALTR PRO is software introduced by Softorino and has been explicitly made for iOS users. Although it is targeted toward iOS users, it works well with both Mac and Windows PCs. Additionally, this tool automatically converts all video and audio formats to iOS-friendly formats and allows cable-less transfers to all iOS devices, including iPhone, iPad, iPod, etc.
Since an iPhone’s ringtone is required to be in an M4R format and you can’t set ringtones from your Apple Music app, it’s vital that you convert your audio files to the said format before proceeding. WALTR PRO offers such conversions and easy transfers without any hassle or additional steps.

How to Manually Add Ringtones to an iPhone
Unlike iTunes and GarageBand which include more than a dozen steps that lead to manually adding ringtones to an iPhone, WALTR PRO does the job in three simple steps. For this reason, we believe that this app is worth giving a try. It’s user-friendly and time- and cost-efficient.
The following are the three steps you need to follow to manually add ringtones to your iPhone using WALTR PRO:
1. Install WALTR PRO on Your Mac or Windows PC
Once you’ve downloaded the tool from Softorino’s official website on your Mac or Windows PC, you can install it on your device following the instructions on your screen. Once the installation is complete, launch the software and watch the onboarding video that will help you understand how WALTR PRO works.
If you’ve downloaded the free trial version, you’ll be prompted to enter your email address where you will then receive a trial key to proceed with your free trial version. Once you’ve entered the trial key in the appropriate field, you can proceed with the next step.
2. Convert Your Audio Files
As mentioned earlier, if you want to use a specific audio file as your ringtone, you will first need to convert it to M4R if it’s not already in this format. In the WALTR PRO window, either select Choose File or enter the URL of the track you want to convert.
You can also drag and drop the files that you wish to convert. In the next window, you can set the format that you want to convert your audio file to, which, in this case, should be the M4R format for ringtones.
3. Transfer the Converted Audio File to Your iPhone
If you want to directly transfer the converted files to your iPhone, you can do so with WALTR PRO. For the first transfer, you’ll need to connect your iOS device via a USB cable. After that, you can simply connect your iOS device to your laptop via Wi-Fi. Keep in mind that your devices need to be on the same network for this to work.
Once the transfer is complete, you will be notified, after which you can simply head to your iPhone’s settings to set the manually added track as your new ringtone. It is pertinent to note that since the files will be in M4R format, they will be automatically added to your ringtones collection on your iPhone.
The following are the steps you’ll need to follow to set the audio file as your ringtone:
1. Click on Settings on your iPhone
2. Scroll down to find Sounds
3. In the Sounds menu, select Ringtone
4. Locate the new ringtone in the list
5. Set it as your new ringtone
Is WALTR PRO Worth Your Time and Money?
