Version 2.8.2 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.

  • See multiple Bluetooth devices at once, including their battery levels.Added new device icons for AirPods 3, AirPods Pro 2, Beats Fit Pro, Beats Studio Buds, Galaxy Buds Live, AfterShokz Aeropex, Sony WF-1000XM4, and Sony WH-1000XM4.
  • Device SettingsOrganized the device icons in the pop-up menu into groups and added tooltips.
  • Worked around some macOS issues that could prevent a Bluetooth device from being set as the current sound output device in various circumstances, such as if it was already connected to an iPhone.
  • Advanced SettingsUpdated the menu titles from Preferences… to Settings….
  • Made various code modernizations, including the way keyboard shortcuts are saved to the preferences file.
  • ToothFairy now requires macOS 10.13 or later.
  • There is now a RunConnectionScriptWhenSettingAudioOutput esoteric preference for the Run shell script after connecting/disconnecting option.
