Version 2.5.1 of ToothFairy is now available. ToothFairy is a Mac menu bar utility that lets you connect AirPods to your Mac with a single click or keypress. It also works with other Bluetooth headphones and with input devices such as mice, keyboards, and game pad controllers. You can see at a glance which devices are connected, as well as their battery levels. ToothFairy can also make music and videos sound better by using a higher quality codec for audio output.

This is a free update that includes the following changes:

  • The battery gauge uses twice as many gradations as before to show the battery level more precisely.
  • The Control-click menu now shows the battery percentage on a separate line, to avoid having such a wide menu item.
  • If you rename a Bluetooth device, the name now updates in ToothFairy without having to relaunch the app.
  • The Bluetooth devices are now sorted by name in the Preferences window.
  • Adjusted the battery level tooltip text so that it doesn’t look funny if only one of the AirPods is connected.
  • Worked around a crash on macOS 10.15 that could occur if the system asked you for permission to allow ToothFairy to control your Bluetooth device and you declined.
  • Worked around a potential crash that could occur if a Bluetooth device’s name couldn’t be loaded.
  • All the settings are now documented in the manual.

ToothFairy 2.5.1 works with macOS 10.11 through 10.15 and requires a Bluetooth device. For information about previous releases of ToothFairy, please see the version history.
