Use a song as an iPhone alarm
Hey, I'm Donald Bell and I have a love-hate relationship with the iPhone's default alarm clock sound Marimba.
Sounds like a cuckoo clock that Jimmy Buffett would use to remind him that it's Margarita time.
On the other hand at this point I've heard it so many times it actually works as a kind of Pavlovian trigger to get me out of bed.
if you can't stand to listen to the Marimba one more time, here's a quick tip for setting the iPhone to play your own music as your alarm.
Now if you're starting from scratch, head into the iPhone's clock app and hit the plus button to create a new alarm.
Set the alarm down here at the bottom and then up here where it says sound, click Marimba and you'll be taken to another screen where you can choose from other ringtones or pick a song from your music library.
To do that, pick a song and then you'll be taken to your music library which you can sort by song or
artist or album to find something that you like.
Now once you find the right song, tap it and you'll hear a preview of what it'll sound like.
Raise the volume level to get a sound that's gonna loud enough to wake you up and then tap the back button to stop the preview.
The sound selection should now show the title of the song you selected.
Now to set the alarm, tap the save button and then you're all set.
Now what if you wanna change an existing alarm or you've gotten used to setting alarms
Here's what to do.
Open up the clock app and make sure you're in the alarm tab.
Hit the edit button at the top and then find the alarm you've already set.
Tap it and it should take you to that same menu we saw before we can select the sound and then hit save.
That's all there is to it.
Now instead of waking up to this, you can wake up to this.
I just made your life more awesome.
