[IOS 13] How to set Your Favorite song as iPhone Ringtone



Ever wondered if you can set your favorite song as your iPhone ringtone.

You don’t have to download any app, your default apple apps and a file manager are sufficient to set your favorite song as an iPhone ringtone.

Let’s get started without making you wait more

Step 1 –  Downloading your favorite ringtone

To set your iPhone ringtone you need to have the garage band app and a file manager. I prefer you to go with Documents by readdle. It is the best file manager app and works well with our method. Surely check the complete review on our blog – 3 best file managers for iPhone.

We need the documents file manager app for surfing and downloading your favorite song on your iPhone. If you are running ios 13 on your iPhone device then you can download your favorite song directly from the safari browser and save it in the iCloud.

If you are not using ios 13 then documents file manager is to be downloaded from the app store.

I have placed a link for you to download it.
