How to turn a TikTok sound into a ringtone on iPhone | Step-by-step instructions

 

You cannot directly convert any video clips on your TikTok into your iPhone ringtone. TikTok doesn’t have that kind of feature. Thankfully, there is a way to make your favorite TikTok become an iPhone ringtone or notification sound. For this, you need to download your TikTok video on your iPhone, then extract the audio from the video and convert it into an iPhone ringtone format.

Want to screen record your favorite TikTok videos on your iPhone? Try installing the Screen Recorder for iPhone app to record and edit your videos in one place.

Here we will show you the step-by-step process of how to make a TikTok sound a ringtone on your iPhone.

 

Step 1: Download TikTok videos on iPhone

 

The first step should be downloading the TikTok video, whose sounds you want to use as your iPhone ringtone. This raises the question: “Can you download TikTok videos on your iPhone?” The answer is yes and no.

 

TikTok has a Save video function that lets you download videos to your iPhone’s Photos library. However, not all videos can be downloaded. If the TikToker doesn’t allow downloads in their account, you won’t see the Save video feature.

 

Nonetheless, there is a way to get those TikTok videos that cannot be saved by default. Here we will show how to save TikTok videos on your iPhone for both cases.

 

Step-by-step process on how to save a TikTok video on your iPhone:

How to download TikTok videos on your iPhone
  • On your iPhone, launch the TikTok app and sign in to your account.
  • Now, select the TikTok video that you’d want to download.
  • Once you have done that, hit the Share icon from the right side of the screen.
  • On the Share screen, tap on the Save video
  • The TikTok video is now on your iPhone’s Photos

For videos without the Save video function, you can screen record them to get their video recordings. There are two ways to screen record your iPhone screen: a built-in screen recorder tool and a third-party screen recorder app.

 

Here’s how to download a TikTok video on your iPhone with the Screen Recorder for iPhone app

Steps to screen record a TikTok video on iPhone with the Screen Recorder app
  • Install and open the Screen Recorder for iPhone
  • Next, tap on the big Start
  • After that, enable the Microphone to start recording audio.
  • Then tap on the Start Broadcast option to begin recording.
  • Now, exit the screen recorder and open your TikTok
  • Then select the TikTok video whose sound you’d like as a ringtone.
  • And let the video play on your iPhone.
  • Once that is done, end the screen recording by heading to the screen recorder and hitting the Stop
  • Or open your iPhone’s Control Center to end the recording.
  • Your TikTok video’s screen recording will now be available in the app. You can share the video from the Screen Recorder app to your iPhone’s Photos

If you don’t want to use a third-party screen recorder app, you can always use your iPhone’s native screen recorder function. Here’s how:

Steps to TikTok screen recording on iPhone
  • Open your iPhone’s Control Center. Swipe down from your iPhone’s top-right to perform this action.
  • Next, touch and hold the Grey Screen Recording icon (Just tap on the icon if the Microphone is already turned on).
  • Then turn on the Microphone (if it isn’t already) and tap on Start Recording to begin recording.
  • After that, open your TikTok account and play the TikTok video you want to record.
  • Once your recording is done, open the Control Center Tap on the now Red Screen Recording icon to stop the recording.
  • Your TikTok video screen recording will be available on your iPhone’s Photos

Step 2: Extract audio from a TikTok video on your iPhone

 

The next step would be to get the audio from the TikTok video you downloaded because that’s how you will turn your TikTok sounds into a ringtone. Most common suggestion is to use a media converter application or online converters to turn your videos into MP3 or any iPhone-compatible audio format. Then you would be asked to use a ringtone maker application to turn the audio file into a ringtone.

 

However, some iPhone ringtone maker apps can directly convert video to ringtone format. In this guide, we will recommend the Ringtones : Ringtone Maker app. We will show you how to turn a TikTok sound into a ringtone on your iPhone with this app.

Create your own custom ringtones on iPhone from your music library, video, and voiceovers with the Ringtones : Ringtone Maker app. Also, enjoy an extensive collection of preloaded tones.

Steps on how to extract audio from your TikTok video on your iPhone:

Steps on how to turn a TikTok sound into a ringtone on iPhone
  • Install and launch the Ringtones : Ringtone Maker app on your iPhone.
  • Next, tap on the Audio from Video button in the app.
  • Then select your TikTok video (downloaded or screen recording) from your iPhone’s Photos
  • After that, the Ringtone Maker app automatically extracts the audio from the video. And it will appear in the app’s Audio Trimmer
  • You can trim the tone’s edges, adjust its volume, rename the file, and apply the “Fade In” or “Fade Out” transition. Once done, tap on Save.

**Your newly created ringtone from your TikTok video will appear on the Ringtone Maker app’s My Tones (Custom) section. Setting the tone on your iPhone would be the next and last step. The following step is not straightforward, and there is no avoiding it.

 

Step 3: Turn your TikTok sound into your iPhone ringtone

 

For this part of the process, you need another app called GarageBand. It is a free audio workstation app developed by Apple. This app doesn’t usually come preinstalled on your iPhone, so you might need to install it.

 

However, an alternative to using the GarageBand app requires you to connect your iPhone to a PC or Mac. Then you’d need to open iTunes (PC) or Finder (Mac). Here, we won’t get into specifics. Still, we have already covered it in a previous article on how to make a ringtone for iPhone.

 

This step will show you how to turn a TikTok sound into a ringtone on your iPhone. You don’t need to connect with a separate device. All we need is to use the Ringtones : Ringtone Maker and the GarageBand app on your iPhone.
