I have successfully added a tone to my iPhone 7, as explained in this Apple Communities discussion.
However it is getting added as a “ringtone” rather than as an “alert tone.”
How can I change it to an Alert Tone? It’s barely 1-second long. When syncing or creating the
.m4r file, there is no option to select the type as either Ringtone or Alert Tone.
The reason I need this is to add a custom notification for a WhatsApp contact. WhatsApp only allows me to choose from Alert Tones.
So the way I see it there are two options:
- Ask WhatsApp to allow to choose from Ringtones.
- Add my own Alert Tone.
I am exploring option 2 here, because WhatsApp support isn’t being very helpful.
