I have been frustrated trying to change the sound for the alarm on my iPhone Xmax from the jarring default Radar sound to a pleasant Mendelssohn symphony. The symphony shows as the song for the specific alarm but what wakes me up in the morning is still Radar. What am I missing?

Sorry for my delay. If you still have the issue, let me know if you have done the following steps:

  1. Open the alarm screen
  2. Tap edit at top left
  3. Tap the alarm to change
  4. Tap the sound to change and tap save
