Different people have different reasons for setting up new ringtones on their iPhone X or iPhone 10. Some of them love particular songs because they remind them of special persons and use them as ringtones for whenever those persons call. Other people just want to stand out and be different from all the other Apple iPhone users. Whatever is motivating you to make this change, we are here to make it easier for you. For this purpose, we’re going to discuss a couple of different aspects related to this ringtone download topic.
First, how do you set up a new ringtone?
- You must open the Settings app;
- Go to the Sounds menu with all its settings;
- Select the Ringtone section available in there;
- Go through the list of options and select one.
Note – these are the steps required for changing the iPhone X or iPhone 10 default ringtone with one of the predefined available ringtones.
