Science says waking up to your favorite song is the best way to kick-start your day. Your favorite song might be a default ringtone on your iPhone or a customized tone made from your favorite song. Whatever it might be, this guide will explain how to make a song your alarm on iPhone. 

Method 1. How to Set A Song as An Alarm on iPhone

Setting the alarm with music is a little bit different from setting ringtones on iPhone. Instead of accessing your Settings app, setting the alarm with music requires you to access your Clock app directly. Here're the steps.

Step 1. Open your Clock app on your iPhone.

Step 2. Tap "Alarm" at the bottom of your screen.

Step 3. Tap "+" in the upper right corner. Then tap "Sound."  

Step 4. From the "Sound" page, you can choose an Apple's default alarm sound or tap "Pick a Song" to choose the song you downloaded to your music library. 

Step 5. If you tap "Pick a song," you need to tap "Songs" under "Select Music."

Step 6. Choose the song you wish to set as an alarm and then tap "Back."

Step 7. Tap "Save" to finish the process.

Method 2. How to Make A Song Your Alarm on iPhone [Custmized]

When you set a song as your alarm clock, your music will start to play at the beginning of your song when your alarm goes on. Then, it will repeat and repeat until you turn it off. That may raise a problem: What if you want your alarm to start in the middle of the song rather than starting at the beginning? 

To do this, you have two options: iTunes and an iPhone ringtone maker. But we don't recommend using iTunes since the process of using iTunes to make a ringtone is quite complex and you might mess with the process for several hours. Thus, you have only one option left. That is to use some iPhone ringtone makers such as EaseUS Ringtone Editor.

While generating a ringtone, you can adjust the sound volume, edit the length, or add fade-in and fade-out effects to your sound. After making a custom ringtone successfully, you directly export it to your iPhone and set it as a ringtone, notification sound, text tone, or other services that require a ringtone. 

To make a custom ringtone with EaseUS Ringtone Editor, you can download it on your computer and follow these steps to do it. 

Step 1. Connect your iPhone to the computer > Run EaseUS Ringtone Editor > Drag and drop the music file to the editing bar, or you can select a song from your computer by clicking "Browse."
