How do you make a song your alarm on iPhone without Apple music?

Answered by Michael Wilson

To make a song your alarm on an iPhone without Apple Music, you can follow these steps:

1. Choose a song: First, you need to have a song on your iPhone that you want to set as your alarm. This can be a song you purchased from iTunes, downloaded from a music app, or even a song you have in your iPhone’s music library.

2. Trim the song: If the song is too long, you can trim it to the desired length using the default iOS music editing feature. To do this, open the Music app on your iPhone and find the song you want to use. Play the song and note the start and end times you want for your alarm. Then, go to the Clock app.

3. Set the alarm: Open the Clock app on your iPhone and navigate to the Alarm tab at the bottom. Tap the “+” button to create a new alarm or select an existing one to edit. Choose the time you want the alarm to go off.

4. Set the alarm sound: Under the alarm settings, tap “Sound” to choose a custom sound for your alarm. Scroll down and select “Pick a song” from the options. This will open your music library.

5. Select the song: In the music library, you can search for the song you want to use as your alarm by using the search bar or browsing through your songs. Once you find the song, tap on it to select it.

6. Adjust the start and end times: After selecting the song, you will see a waveform editor screen. This screen allows you to adjust the start and end times of the song specifically for the alarm. Drag the start and end markers to the desired positions, corresponding to the part of the song you want to use as your alarm.

7. Save and set the alarm: Once you have adjusted the start and end times, tap “Save” in the top right corner to save your custom alarm. The selected song will now play as your alarm at the specified time.

It’s worth noting that these steps may vary slightly depending on the version of iOS you are using on your iPhone. However, the general process should remain similar.

By following these steps, you can easily set a custom song as your alarm on your iPhone without relying on Apple Music. Enjoy waking up to your favorite tunes!
