iTunes is the default phone manager for iPhones. This is made by Apple so that iPhone users won’t need to spend time looking for a tool which can help them to manage their phone files. You can also add ringtones with it, however, the process is a little confusing. Here are the steps that you should follow if you want to use iTunes. Note that this works on the latest version of iTunes. So, you’ll have to update your system first.

  1. Launch iTunes on your PC and transfer the song you want to use to the Library.
  2. Right click the newly-created song and choose “Song info”. On the new window, select “options” then tick the “start time” and “stop time” checkboxes to specify the part you want to cut. Click the “Ok” button and right click the track again.


  3. Click on the song to select it, and in the Menu Bar, go to “File” > “Convert”, and select “Create AAC version”.
