The step by step guide to change the alert tone on the iPhone

In any event, here’s how to customize your ringtone, mail, text, and calendar alert sounds.

Step 5. There is a Classic sub-menu at the bottom of each list. Tap it to hear some old sounds you haven’t heard in a long time, such as the iconic bell chime.

Now, chances are that when you are picking a ringtone, you may not really like the options that Apple has provided to you and as such, the next logical step would be to pick a custom tone to do that, these are the steps you need to follow –

Step 1. If you are trying to set a custom alarm, you will need to open the Clock app on the iPhone. But, for every other custom sound, you can simply head to the Sound and Vibrations Patterns section in the settings menu.

Step 2. At the top of the page, look for a shortcut titled Tone Store. Tap it to access the iTunes Store.

Step 3. Tap on the Tones option.

There are numerous possibilities, but be warned: they are not free. When we looked, all of the music clips appeared to cost $1.29, while audio clips were 99 cents. If you’re morally opposed to paying for a ringtone, you’ll have to go back to the Apple-supplied options.
