TikTok is packed with viral tunes that will no doubt stay in your head for weeks. How cool is it that you can also use them as a ringtone or sound for notifications on your iPhone?
Whether you want to set the hilariously familiar screaming goat or just a song by a new upcoming artist as your ringtone, it’s all possible. We explain how you can download different sounds from your favorite creators, as long as TikTok remains available on your iPhone, at least….
TikTok sound as a ringtone on your iPhone
First, of course, find the video whose audio you want to use for your ringtone. Hold down the TikTok video of your choice for a few seconds. Then tap Save video.
Next, download the app Ringtones Maker from the App Store. You need an iPhone with iOS 11 or newer for this. Open the app and click Import from video. Then tap the file you just saved and choose Make.
Three iOS apps needed
In addition to TikTok and Ringtones Maker, you also need the app GarageBand. This requires iOS 16 or newer. You may already have this Apple app on your iPhone, but if not, you can easily download it from the App Store. Go back to Ringtones Maker and tap Share. Here, choose GarageBand.
Then within GarageBand, choose Share again and tap Ringtone. If necessary, rename the TikTok sound so you can easily recognize it. Tap Export, wait a few seconds and tap Use sound as. Now choose either Standard Ring Tone or Standard Text Message Tone.
In your iPhone’s Settings, you can check if the TikTok tune is actually set as a ringtone. Go to the Hear and Feel section. Under Ring tone (or under Text message tone) you should now find the sound you just set. Now just wait until you get a call!
