New in iOS 6: set a song as your alarm

By , Jun 11, 2012

iOS 6 beta dropped a few hours ago, and while some of us – including me – are struggling to get it installed, others like iDB reader @aligee97 are busy digging into the beta firmware.

And some little gems have already been uncovered. New in iOS 6 is the ability to set a song as your alarm…

Instead of choosing a ringtone like you can currently do in iOS 5, you can tell your iDevice to pick a song from your music library.

Of course, those of us who jailbreak are no stranger to this simple feature, but it’s nice to see Apple finally baking it straight into iOS.

Let us know if you find anything else new in iOS 6!

    Is it just me, or are there some slight colour changes in iOS6? The status bar is a different colour, is that because of the do not disturb feature being enabled?

    Looks like a cool new update though, shame I’ll have to lose my jailbreak for it! ;)
