    How does one put in a new ringtone (not one in the library of ringtones) onto an iPhone6+. I can see how to change the ringtones not to put a different one onto the iPhone

    You can make ring tones in Garageband right on the iPhone or in Garageband on a Mac and then load them via iTunes. Either way you'll be saving them in a specific ring tone file format.

    For Garageband on the iPhone, if you want to use an MP3 song file and create a ring tone from it, it will need to first be loaded to your iPhone through iTunes. You can also just create a ring tone of your own using the Garageband loops and instruments that come with it.

    Otherwise, you can buy ring tones from the iTunes store I think.

    It's disappointing that you still need iTunes to manage ringtones. D love it if Apple would allow a sound file to be saved directly to the phone and be assigned as a ringtone or alert sound.

    What I actually have is a ringtone with a " m4r " extension. This was on my old iPhone5s, but did not transfer across to the new iPhone6+. The question is that how do I insert this ringtone into my new iPhone. I have a iMac desktop, obviously with iTunes. I just can't find a way to install the ringtone via iTunes onto my iPhone

    Drag and drop it into the tones section in iTunes and sync with your phone.

    Yep...And also make sure that tones are selected to sync, in iTunes.
