Use The Touch ID Sound As A Text Tone!

We all know that wonderful Touch ID sound and we just can’t get enough of it – so now, why don’t you make it into a ringtone and/or a text tone for your iPhone?! Keep reading to find out how!

In order for you to use the Touch ID sound as a ringtone or text tone, you will need a couple of 1 apps downloaded onto your iPhone in order to make this as easy as possible. I promise, all the apps are free and this won’t cost you a penny and most likely, you probably already have most of these apps installed!

You will need the following apps installed on your iPhone:

  • GarageBand (it takes a little bit to download if you don’t already have it downloaded!)
  • Files App (Most likely already installed)

Once you have all the apps downloaded, click on this link using your iPhone. (I promise, it’s safe! It’s a file for GarageBand and it’s needed in order for this to work!)

After you click on the link, a page will pop up on your iPhone – tap the share sheet up in the right corner of the page:

Tap on the Share Sheet 

In order for this next step to work, you must have GarageBand installed – if you don’t have it installed already, I don’t know what to tell you, because I told you earlier that you were going to need it… go and download it now. If you already have it, tap on “Open in GarageBand”:

Tap on Open in GarageBand

GarageBand will open to the Text Tone Project; once it does, tap on the white, upside-down triangle at the top left and then tap “My Songs”. Please note, you do not have to change any settings or configurations:

Now you should be in your GarageBand library and the file you just downloaded should be in there as well – lightly tap and hold on the project “App Store Touch ID Text Tone” for a couple of seconds and then a set of options will pop up – from those options, select “Share”:

Tap and hold on the project “App Store Touch ID Text Tone” for a couple of seconds and then tap “Share” 

You will be shown 3 different share options – can you guess which one you should tap?!? That’s right, “Ringtone”!:

Tap on “Ringtone”

Finally, you can rename the Ringtone if you want and then select a destination (or leave it as default), then tap “Export” at the top, right:

You can rename the ringtone if you’d like or if not, just tap “Export”

Once the ringtone has been exported, a pop-up will appear to tell you that the ringtone export was successful (hopefully – if you followed all of my instructions, you should be successful). Inside the pop-up is the option to “Use Sound As” – tap that option:

If the export of the ringtone was successful, you should see the above pop-up box – if so, tap on “Use Sound As”

You have 3 different options to use the exported Touch ID sound text tone:

  • Standard Ringtone
  • Standard Text Tone
  • Assign To Contact
