Setting iPhone Ringtones For Individual Contacts

You can set default ringtones and text tones on your iPhone. But you can also set each contact to use a specific ringtone or text tone so that you can identify the caller or message sender without looking at your phone.

    Will the custom taps under vibration get transferred to the Apple Watch so you will feel those special taps there as well when some one calls or texts?

    Bill: Not sure. Give it a try and report back what you find.

    Thanks Gary, you made me a lot wiser… changed some of my contact’s ringtones.

    Is it possible to get a music ringtone from a song that I have already purchased from iTunes?

    Mary: Yes. It involves creating right+clicking on the song and choosing “show in finder.” Then make a copy of that file and put it somewhere. Open it in QuickTime Player and use the Trim function to make it less than 30 seconds. Then change the file name to .m4r instead of .m4a. Then import that into iTunes under “Tones.” Then sync that tone to your iPhone. Lots of steps. Perhaps I’ll do an updated video on the process soon.
