As it said in the question, you cannot put ringtones to new iPhone 7 from your old device by restoring with iTunes or iCloud. Because you can’t backup ringtones to iTunes or iCloud. So what can you do to sync ringtones from iPhone to iPhone?

With iTunes, you can sync all purchased items from old iPhone to new iPhone. In this way, you can transfer some purchased ringtones to your new iPhone 7.
