Set your favorite song as alarm tone on iPhone

The Clock app offers several alarm tones to choose from, but if you are tired of being woken up to the default sounds like Night Owl and By the Seaside, you'll be happy to learn that you can use your own music as the alarm sound. We'll show you how to use a song from the Music app or Apple Music as your alarm sound on your iPhone.

All AirPods, AirPods Pro, and AirPods Max have automatic ear or head detection. Because of this, when you pull out one or both AirPods from your ear, it automatically stops the media playback on your iPhone, iPad, Mac, or Apple Watch.

If you don't like this, we'll show you how to turn this feature off. After that, music, video, or podcasts won't pause even when you take out one AirPod out of your your ear.
