New in iOS 6 is the ability to play a song from your iTunes library as the sound of alarm in the Clock app. Gone will be the monotonous ringtones. To setup, tap the “Sound” option when editing an alarm. Then tap on “Pick a song” to bring up your music library to select a song to play for the alarm. This will work nicely if you connect your iOS device to a speaker dock. You can do the same on the iPad as there is a Clock app in iPad starting with iOS 6.
