That’s pretty much all there is to it. Now you know how easy it is to buy ringtones on your iPhone.

There are plenty of ringtones that are available on the Tone Store. Although you can set any of these ringtones as your alert tone, most ringtones aren’t really suited for that. Instead, you can use the search bar and use the Alert Tones category to filter out all the available text tones.

We get that some of you wouldn’t be interested in paying for ringtones and alert tones. Fortunately, if you’re willing to spend some of your time, you can use the free GarageBand app to create custom ringtones for your iPhone that are completely unique or to your liking. You can also set any song as your ringtone. Or, you can get creative in a different way and turn a voice memo into a ringtone on your iPhone, which can be a really fun way to customize a ringtone per contact.

While purchasing a ringtone, the ability to assign the ringtone to a contact might have grabbed your attention. In that case, check this out to learn how to assign custom ringtones to your iPhone contacts. By doing this, you’ll know who exactly is calling you without having to check your phone, since the audio will be unique to that person. You can even make a silent ringtone if you’d rather not hear someone, but you don’t want to block them completely.
