I picked a song for an alarm and now every alarm that I create with Siri uses that song. I cannot change the default alarm song back to the default alarm sound. When I need to create an alarm manually I can see the default alarm sound, but every single time I create an alarm with Siri then it reverts back to that one song. It's impossible to change the default alarm sound that Siri uses. I'm using iOS 10.2.

  • It's impossible to change the default alarm sound that Siri uses I believe this is the answer. It may be frustrating, but I am certain that there is no way in changing the 'default' ringtone for new alarms. I think this is not a bad idea at all - maybe you should suggest this as a feature here: apple.com/feedback/iphone.html – pallox Feb 16 '17 at 14:48
  • Well then how did I change the default to a song to begin with? – Chloe Feb 16 '17 at 15:42
  • Seems like I got your initial question wrong. So the song chosen by Siri for new alarms is not the iOS-default ringtone since you changed it once for another alarm. In that case this looks like a funny (well, apperently for you unfunny) bug. I'll try to reproduce this and report back. – pallox Feb 17 '17 at 15:22

    Update: I reproduced the problem. When Siri sets the alarm I always get the song I used once before when setting an alarm. This definately seems to be a bug of iOS 10 and propably previous releases – pallox Feb 20 '17 at 13:00

I had the same issue. Did a hard reset (power and volume down until the Apple logo appeared. That'd be power and home button for all other non-7 devices.) It fixed the problem. It was driving me absolutely crazy.

    What's wrong with just turning it off and on? Power + Home takes a screen shot. – Chloe May 25 '17 at 3:30
