Most of us use our iPhone, iPad or iPod Touch as an alarm clock to wake up. Have you ever thought of waking up hearing your favorite song? iOS users didn’t have this feature till the arrival of iOS 6. But now, we have it. You can now set a song as alarm tone on your iDevice with iOS 6 or above.

In earlier firmware versions, i.e. till iOS 6, the iPhone and iPod Touch users were able only to select a tone from a default list of tones which Apple provided (I said “iPhone and iPod Touch users” because the iPad didn’t have a clock app).
