Version 2.6.1 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:

  • Improved the details in the AirPods Pro icon.
  • Added another variant of the AirPods icon that’s slightly smaller, because some people prefer that size and also to help differentiate for those who have multiple pairs of AirPods.
  • The game controller icon no longer shows a wire.
  • You can now hold down the Option key when opening the icon pop-up menu to see the filled versions of the icons.
  • ToothFairy is faster at detecting when a device’s connection has been dropped without macOS noticing.
  • The How can I switch back to an iPhone or other Mac? section of the manual now tells how you can make a Siri shortcut to quickly switch an iOS device to a given audio device.
  • Updated the Adding a Device and Why isn’t my device connecting? sections of the manual.
  • When the Preferences window is already open, choosing the Preferences… menu command for a device will now select that device.
  • Closing the Advanced sheet now preserves the selected device.

ToothFairy 2.6.1 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.
