I have been waking up to the xylophone alarm sound on my iPhone for years, and I always knew there was something familiar about it. It took a little research but I finally figured it out. It wasn't so much research as it was Chill Penguin's theme coming up on shuffle while listening to my iPod, but isn't that how most scientific discoveries are made?
First, here's the xylophone alarm sound that is included on all iPhones.
And here's the short matching clip from the Chill Penguin theme.
And here are the two audio files crudely combined.
Admittedly, it falls apart near the end but, the first few notes are pretty close. The mystery you weren't even curious about has finally been solved.

Well,it's good to know that there's a little bit of Mega Man in every Iphone in the world!
That's incredible! I don't know how I never noticed that.
Data is amazed!
Wow, they are very similar!
I cant believe Tim didnt figure this out
Now that I know, I can finally move on with my life....once I make that a ringtone for myself.
That is pretty similar. Lets hope a lawsuit doesn't arise from this.
Wow, I would have never noticed that.
Cool! That's an awesome connection!
Well done, Sherlock Holmes!
i will forever hate that mega man song now. after years of waking up to that sound it just makes me cringe at this point lol
Well, that's a thing.
I knew it! Great detective work Kyle.
Why is it only 4 seconds? It's not long enough to make a good judgment as to its accuracy.
This is an incredible find. I've been listening to Chill Penguin's stage music wrong for my whole life.
i relly hope they made it with that in mind becauce thats an epic easter egg
It really reminds me of the Sims for some reason too. It's like a Sims/Mega Man hybrid ring tone.
That's awesome. One of my favorite Mega Man tunes.
Chill was the coolest because you got the dash boots
