Part 1. Why Can't Make Android Ringtone & iPhone Ringtone from Apple Music

Apple Music files are in M4P format, which is different from the popular ringtone formats, MP3 for Android and M4R for iPhone. So it is not a surprise that we can't make ringtone from Apple Music directly. I searched the internet to find the best free ringtone maker online and try to create a ringtone with it. It really annoys me that the error message always shows up "The file is not recognized".

After getting help from Apple support, I found that Apple Music is combined with digital rights management protection which is designed for limiting users from violating the copyright and illegally distributing the files to others. That makes no sense. Because we should get the most out of the files if we only create ringtones for personal use. Luckily, DRmare Apple Music Converter helps me out.

You can use it to make ringtones from any music files on the iTunes library for any phones. No extra software required.
