Question: How do I remove tones from my iPhone?

There is no "tones" section in iTunes any more, so how can I remove tones I have purchased through iTunes Store on the phone?

Thanks in advance!

iPhone 7, iOS 11.3

See Create and manage ringtones in iTunes. You should be able to see the tones folder of the device when it is connected to iTunes and be able to make changes. If you cannot see the items that you want to remove you could use iFunBox or a similar tool to poke around in the file system of the device. In iFunBox try Toolbox > User File System > iPod_Control > Ringtones. Any custom tones on your device should probably show up there with random 4 letter file names and a .m4r extension. Deleting these should clear all custom tones from the list on the device, and you can then add back what you want using iTunes or redownload purchased tones from your purchase history.
