How to turn a TikTok sound into an iPhone alarm clock

Okay, let’s get down to business. Remember that the process is boring and can take a while.

1. Find the audio you want to use

There are a few ways you can do this:

  • The first is directly on the TikTok video;
  • To do this, just tap the Share icon and then tap  Save Video .

Now, if the content creator doesn’t allow you to download it directly, you’ll need to record the screen:

  • Go to the Settings app  ;
  • Then tap  Control Center ;
  • Scroll down until you find the Screen Recording option  and tap the  green beside it;
  • Go to the video that has the TikTok sound you want to turn into your iPhone alarm clock;
  • Open Control Center by dragging from the bottom of the screen upwards and tap the Screen Recording icon  ;
  • When the video ends, end recording.

Finally, if the creator added their own sounds on top of the song, but you just want it:

  • Tap the music icon at the bottom of the screen;
  • Then tap  Add to Favorites ;
  • Tap your profile icon, tap the Favorites icon  , then go to  Sounds ;
  • Now, turn on screen recording and play the TikTok sound you want to make your iPhone alarm clock. When he’s done, finish recording!

With all that done, let’s go to the next step.

2. Converting video to audio

Okay. Now that we have a video with the sound, we need to extract it, don’t we? There are two ways to do this: using conversion apps or conversion sites.

  • Download some video to audio conversion app. We use  AudioConvert , but either will do;
  • Open the app and tap the  + at the top of the screen in it;
  • Tap  Import Videos . You will have to give access to your Photos;
  • Now browse to the video you downloaded or in the screen recording and tap on it;
  • Then tap the video again and tap  Extract Audio(Easy) to get the TikTok sound you want to turn into your iPhone alarm clock;

  • Now tap the audio you created and tap  More ;
  • Tap  Send , scroll up, and tap  Save to Files . If you use another app, be sure to upload the audio to  Archives .

The process on websites is very similar, even though it offers fewer options:

  • Follow the link to online-conver
  • Tap  Choose Files . Select Photo Library and find the downloaded or recorded video;
  • Choose the options you want and tap Start Conversion ;
  • When finished, tap  Download . That’s it, the TikTok sound you want to turn into your iPhone’s alarm clock will be in your browser’s Downloads.

3. Import the TikTok sound you want to make your iPhone alarm clock into GarageBand

It is necessary to use yet another app! As mentioned, the process is genuinely much more complicated than it should (and could) be.

  • Then tap the  + in the upper right corner of the screen;
  • Navigate to  Audio Recorder and tap the microphone icon to open it;

iPhone ringtones are 30 seconds long. In other words, the ideal is that you increase the duration of the sound of the TikTok that you want to turn into the iPhone’s alarm clock to 30 seconds. To do this, follow the steps:

  • Tap the + icon  in the upper right corner of the screen;
  • Tap  Section A and under  Manual , change to 30 and tap  OK  in the upper-right corner;
  • Now tap the sound twice and tap Settings ;
  • Then turn on the In Loop option and tap  OK in the upper right corner;

5. Export and set as ringtone!

Okay, we’ve reached the final stage of the process:

  • You will see the project you just edited on the screen. Tap and hold it until a menu appears;
  • Tap  Share ;
  • Now tap  Tap ;
  • If the screen appears saying  Ring Duration needs to be adjusted , tap  Continue ;
