In addition to the new static and dynamic wallpapers, iOS 7 golden master (GM) which was released to developers on Tuesday, just after the iPhone event, also includes the new “textured” ringtones and text tones that were mentioned during the event.
If you don’t want to wait until next week, you can download the new ringtones and alert tones, courtesy folks at Macmixing, who have managed to extract them from iOS 7 GM.
You can follow these simple steps to download the new alert tones and ringtones on your device.
