Create free ringtones for your iPhone using only iTunes and songs you already have on your computer (This method only works with songs that are DRM free. To create ringtones using DRM protected songs please use this method). This method has been tested and works with iTunes 7.7.1 and iPhone 2.0.1 firmware.
To create custom ringtones using only iTunes:
Right click on the song you are going to make into a ringer and select “Get Info.”
Go to the options tab and go down to the “Start Time” and “Stop Time” check boxes. Check both boxes and input the time you want your ringer to start/stop. The ringer has to be 30 seconds or less. Click OK when you’re done.
Right click on your newly “clipped” song and select “Convert Selection to AAC.” The song will be re-encoded using the start and stop times determined (If your menu item does not read “Convert Selection to AAC” and reads “Convert Slection to MP3″ (or some other format) please go to iTunes > Preferences > Advanced > Importing and change the “Import Using” drop down menu to “AAC Encoder”).
After the song is done encoding navigate to your iTunes Music folder, locate your song, and drag it to your desktop. After the song is on your desktop go back to iTunes and delete the clipped version from you iTunes library (It won’t delete it from your desktop, it will only remove it from iTunes).
Go back the song on your desktop and right click on your song and chose “Get info.” Go to the name and extension section and change the extension from .m4a to .m4r (or you can just change the extension right from your desktop)
After the extension is changed simply double click on the file to add it to your iTunes library under the ringtones section. Sync your phone with iTunes and you’re done!
Remember to go back into iTunes and uncheck your custom start and stop times for the original version of your song.
iCloud email is protected with Apple’s two step verification, so you need an ‘app-specific password’ to sign into an app that’s not provided by Apple, like Windows Mail which doesn’t support entering verification codes.
Here are the steps:
Sign into Apple ID with your iCloud email and password: https://appleid.apple.com/account/manage
If you’re a two step verification user, your device (for me, my iPhone) will give you a verification code to enter after you put in your iCloud email password
In the ‘Security’ section, hit ‘Edit’
In the ‘App-Specific Passwords’ section, hit ‘Generate Password…’
Enter a label for this password (Windows 10 mail app)
An app-specific password will be created for you, in this format (case sensitive) tmah-jdbq-rdby-gdes
Copy the password and hit ‘Done’
Now open up Windows Mail > settings (cog icon) > manage accounts > Select your iCloud account and enter your app-specific password then ‘Save’ – do not enter your iCloud email password, you just need to input the app-specific password
Your iCloud email should now start to appear. It seems Windows Mail pre-set config is correct, so you shouldn’t need to change the incoming or outgoing email server settings:
Incoming email server: imap.mail.me.com:993:1
Outgoing (SMTP) email server: smtp.mail.me.com:587:1
