Method 2: Move Ringtones from Old iPhone to New iPhone via iTunes

When iOS users need to transfer data from iPhone to computer or vice versa, the first way they usually think of is to use iTunes. However, using iTunes can sometimes be a bit complicated. When using iTunes, you need to transfer your ringtones from your old iPhone to iTunes and then transfer them from iTunes to your new iPhone.

But before adopting this approach, you need to pay attention to two main issues:
1. iTunes only supports the transfer of purchased items in iTunes library, not including ringtones you get from other sources.
2. iTunes sync will delete existing media files on the iPhone, such as songs, videos, ringtones, etc. So if your iPhone has a lot of important data, you'd better not use iTunes to transfer ringtones from iPhone to iPhone.

Step 1. First connect the original iPhone device to your PC and launch iTunes.

Step 2. Select your phone name in the left sidebar of the iTunes interface and go to the "Tones" segment.

Step 3. Select the "Sync Tones" option and start syncing each ringtone from your old iPhone to iTunes. Then select the "Apply" option to activate it.

Step 5. Connect your new iPhone to this computer.

Step 6. Select your phone name in the left sidebar of the iTunes interface and go to the "Tones" segment.

Step 7. Next, select the "Sync Tones" option, then you can choose to manually select some or all of the ringtones you want to sync.

Step 8. Click on the "Apply" option to sync the selected ringtone to your new iPhone.
