How To Get The iPhone X's Exclusive New Ringtone On Your Older iPhone

One of the many ways Apple sets its smartphones apart from the herd is with special ringtones, dating back to the original iPhone and its iconic Marimba melody. The iPhone X is no different. It features an exclusive default ringtone called "Reflection", so that everyone around you will know that you shelled out for the pricey new gadget as soon as it starts to ring.

If you're looking to status signal without dropping $1579 (or just really like the way "Reflection" sounds), there's a way to get the new ringtone on your current iPhone right now for free. Here's how to do it (courtesy of Gadget Hacks).

How to Install the iPhone X Ringtone on an Old iPhone

Before we get started, it's probably worth listening to Reflection for yourself to decide if it's actually worth the effort. Here's what it sounds like:

Still interested? Great. The first thing you'll need to do is download the Reflection audio file onto a Mac or PC. You can grab the ringtone from MediaFire right here.

Next, connect your iPhone to that computer via USB and launch iTunes. Then open the folder with your downloaded copy of Reflection and drag the file into iTunes. Drop it in the left side of the window under Tones, which should show up below your iPhone's name.

Once that's done, pick up your iPhone and head into Settings. Tap on "Sound & Haptics" and then "Ringtone". You should see a new option titled "Reflection". Select that, and you're all finished. Now see if you can fool a few people into thinking you have an iPhone X.

    Does this process work with High Sierra, latest version of iTunes and iOS 11.1? There was a pop-up window with a message mentioning apps and ringtones now being somewhere else (that I missed the main message of) when I opened iTunes and I can't get this process to work.
