How to Change Ringtone on iPhone
Are you tired of listening to the default ringtone whenever you get an incoming phone call to iPhone? If so, you may be interested in switching to a different ringtone, a fairly simple process but something you may not be familiar with especially if you’re new to the iOS ecosystem.
The default ringtone on the iPhone is pleasant enough, but the issue is that most people use the same ringtone, and you could easily get confused when you hear it in a public place. If a unique ringtone is what you’re looking for, you’ll be excited to know that there is a wide selection of stock ringtones that you can use. And if that’s not enough, there’s always the dedicated Tone store where you can purchase just the ringtone you want. Or you can even set songs as ringtones, turn voice memos into ringtones, or create one from scratch on your own if you want to get a bit more advanced.
So, want to switch up the default ringtone on your iPhone? Read on, you’re in the right place!
