    This seems to be a strange iOS 7 limitation, if this is what it looks like: It's only running iOS 5 and 6 (and NOT iOS 7 !?) that one can install clock alarm tones from a 3rd party?

    Is this really so?

    And if it is: why on earth has Apple made this limitation?!

    I hope someone can say this is not so - and also explain how to install an alarm tone running iOS 7 on the iPhone 5? I would like to use an mp3-file as a sourse.

    I'm running iOS 7.0.4 on my iPhone 5.

    I can go into the alarm settings and at the top there's an option to "pick a song", then you can choose an MP3 in your phone's music library. It's been this way for a couple OS renditions.

    I never knew this existed myself because I always had Siri set alarms for me. Whatever ringtone I had set was the song that played.
