Convert M4R to M4A online, for free.
Apple iPhone Ringtone (M4R) is the file format Apple uses to store ringtones on iPhones. The maximum length of an M4R file is 40 seconds. The only difference between M4R and MPEG 4 Audio (M4A) is the file extension, which lets an iPhone know M4R is a ringtone instead of a song.
As a format deployed by Apple for iPhone ringtones, M4R files open on iTunes by default.
Alternatively, Apple iOS is another good choice for opening M4R files. To create a custom ringtone, simply save an M4A file as an M4R file, and then import it into the iPhone.

MPEG 4 Audio (M4A) compresses and encodes audio files by using one of two coder-decoder algorithms: Advanced Audio Coding (AAC) or Apple Lossless Audio Codec (ALAC). M4A files are smaller in size while simultaneously better in quality than MP3 files, with which it shares the most similarities, in comparison to all other audio file formats.
M4A files open in most well-known, audio-playback programs, including iTunes, QuickTime, and Windows Media Player. For Apple users, iTunes is the default program to open M4A files. For Windows users, the default program is Windows Media Player. Users can also preview M4A files by highlighting the file and pressing the spacebar.
