What is the iPhone 5 Ringtone Format?
iPhone, along with all iOS devices, uses AAC (Advanced Audio Coding) as the default codec for audio files. Although audio “quality” is largely subjective it is accepted that the AAC codec provides better quality than MP3 at comparable bit rates. AAC is popular with smartphone manufacturers, supported by Android, Nokia and Blackberry amongst others.
Back to the iPhone, the file extension for such audio files is .m4a. So when you are listening to a track purchased from iTunes, or ripped from CD using iTunes default settings, you are listening to an .m4a. Ringtones simply use the AAC codec but with a different file extension – .m4r. It is most likely that Apple specified .m4r as opposed to .m4a for ringtones in order to exert some control over the use of such audio files.
