How to have your iPhone alarm turn on your favorite radio station

How to have your iPhone alarm play a radio station.

A lot of people like to (or at least used to like to, before they started using smart phones as alarm clocks instead of good old clock radios) wake up to a local news station to hear traffic, weather, sports scores and more, or to their favorite music station. Since your iPhone is capable of tuning into just about any radio station you'd think there would be an option to have the alarm automatically tune to one of your choice.

Use Spotify music for an iPhone alarm with SpotAlarm

While the iPhone offers many different alarm sounds, many users prefer to wake up with music playing. Choosing your favorite song or using Apple Music as your alarm works well. Now thanks to the jailbreak tweak SpotAlarm, fans of the streaming music service Spotify can use any Spotify track as an alarm. The tweak is compatible with iOS 8 and iOS 9 on jailbroken devices.

Make it easier to snooze the iPhone alarm

SnoozeHelper with Aeuria LS

For some iPhone owners hitting the snooze button is a morning ritual. The iPhone doesn't make this easy, like some of the old digital alarm clocks with massive snooze buttons on top. Instead, getting a few extra minutes of time in bed requires tapping a narrow band of text on the lock screen that says "Tap to snooze". It can be easy to miss. This situation can now be fixed thanks to the jailbreak tweak SnoozeHelper.
