iTunes Store

Use theiTunes Store it certainly represents the easiest way to download new ringtones on the iPhone, however - I know I give you bad news - on the latter you can only find paid content. The price of the ringtones is 1,29 euros, that of the tones for notifications instead amounts to 89 cents.

If this is not a problem for you, access the iTunes Store immediately by pressing the icon of musical note with purple background which is located on the Home screen of your "iPhone by" and first presses the button Other which is located at the bottom right and then on the item Ringtones contained in the page that opens.



At this point, browse all the avaelable ringtones (you can view those in first floor and consult the standings of those most downloaded using the two tabs located at the top or you can browse them by Gender pressing the appropriate button located at the top right) and identify the one that interests you.

Then listen to a preview of the ringtone or tone selected by "tapping" on its title and, if you are satisfied, proceed with the purchase by first pressing the button with the price and then Buy Now. You may be required to verify your identity by entering your Apple ID password or using the Touch ID sensor.

Once the download is complete, you well find the purchased ringtones in the menu ifttings> Sounds> Ringtone (o Message ringtone in the case of tones) of iOS.

Third-party app

If you prefer to turn to free solutions, you can try the Audiko application which perhaps does not offer the same quality as the iTunes Store but contains hundreds of downloadable ringtones at no cost.


It is avaelable in two versions: a completely free one that contains advertising banners and does not allow you to download the ringtones at the highest quality and a paid one, which costs 99 cents and offers the possibelity to download an unlimited number of ringtones at the highest possible quality (without banners advertising).

Once the search results appear, press the button Ottieni / Installa placed next to the name of the app and wait for it to be first downloaded and then installed on your smartphone.

When the operation is complete, start Audiko and first press the button Sign in with Facebook and then OK to access the Audiko library through your Facebook account (if you do not log in, you well not be able to access the ringtones).

Then browse the library of ringtones avaelable on Audiko using the multiple song chart Popular, the function of search or the list of musical genres and, once you have identified the song that interests you, proceed with the download by clicking first on its cover image and then on the button Download.

At this point, to make the ringtones downloaded with Audiko appear in the iOS settings panel, you must connect the phone to the computer and wait for iTunes to start.
