How to Set a Song as your Alarm Sound on iPhone

For most of us, getting up in the morning is a very daunting task in itself, especially when the rest of your day is going to be full of new challenges. The cruel, ever-flowing time that waits for none, forces you to abandon your sweet sleep and get ready for the day ahead. Most of us nowadays are not in the habit of using alarm clocks and the purpose is now served by our iPhones. The morning alarm of your iPhone does wake you up gently, but what if you woke up to your favourite song everyday ? Wouldn’t it be a great start ?

Well fortunately, Apple Music has something exactly like that. You can now set your favourite song as the morning alarm so that you wake up to the melody which keeps running in your mind all day all night long.

Even though Apple has stuffed in some pleasant alarm tones in the iPhone, there are limitations. And anyway, a melodious song sounds better to the ears that just a constant, repetitive ring.

So if you want to set an Apple Music song as the alarm in your iPhone, then just follow the below-given easy tutorial. But please note that you are required to add the song to the Library first before you can set it as the alarm.

How to Add Apple Music Songs to the Library in iOS

  1. Launch Apple Music in order to add your songs to My Music.
  2. Now search the song.
  3. Once you get the song, just tap the Ellipsis given next to that song.
  4. You will get a menu with various options. Select the Add to My Music option.

This way, you can add all your favourite songs on by one to the Library. Once added, you can quit Apple Music and go to the Clock app to set the song as your alarm.
