Question: I've lost my [self-made] ringtones after updating to iTunes 12.7.1

Hi, hope someone can help me?

I made 20 or so ringtones ages ago, using RMaker, and these have always resided in my iTunes library and have synced with my various iPhones without problems. Now, after updating to iTunes 12.7.1, the tones have disappeared.

I noticed a brief message when I updated the software; something like "iTunes 12.7.1 no longer supports tones - You can retrieve your tones from iCloud," or something along those lines...

Great. Thank you again, Apple. What am I supposed to do with my [self-made] tones, that I didn't buy from your precious iTunes store?

Can anyone help me to keep my ringtones on my iPhone SE? They are currently still on the phone because I have not dare sync the phone with my iTunes library [since updating to iTunes 12.7.1].

I also happen to have the original tones in a different iTunes library on an older PC [running Windows Vista] - I can't sync the phone directly with this older PC because the iPhone SE needs a later version of iTunes to sync...[!]

Can anyone help me?

Thank you,

Geof

iPhone SE, Windows 10

Answer:
Answer:

If they were in your iTunes Library before you updated iTunes they should still be there. iTunes no longer syncs them but can still be used to add them to an iPhone. See:

Use tones and ringtones on your iPhone, iPad, or iPod touch - Apple Support

and
