iTunes 7.5 and iPhone 1.1.2 Restore Custom Ringtones

In a surprising turn of events, the latest updates to iTunes 7.5 and iPhone firmware 1.1.2 have reintroduced the ability to add custom ringtones effortlessly.

Users can now simply convert any m4a audio file under thirty seconds (some have succeeded with up to 40 seconds) into an m4r file, then sync it with their iPhone by double-clicking to add it to iTunes.

This functionality was tested and confirmed personally.

Is this a change in policy from Apple, or merely an accidental feature? We’ll have to wait to see how Apple responds in the future.
