iPhone 5 Ringtones - How To Manually Create And Add Ringtones In iPhone 5
If you are one of the new iPhone 5 users, you might be wondering if it is possible to create and add ringtones from your music collection and if you could do that easily. Well, the answer is yes but its a bit tricky. It might come as a shock to you that you cannot simply create a ringtone from the music app and add to the list of ringtones that you have. Unlike how easy it is to create ringtones in android right from your music, you need to have a ringtone maker app for iPhone to be able to create and add the ringtones. I'm going to discuss some popular and free ringtone apps that help you design ringtones for iPhone 5.
