Connect AirPods to Mac more easily with this app

If you have AirPods, then you must agree that connecting your wireless headsets with iPhones and Apple Watches comes close to being "magic" (as the company's own campaign advertised). But for those who also own a Mac, the bridge between AirPods and Ma computers is not always as fluid as on iOS.

Of course, even if not the same, the connection between headphones and Macs is a few clicks away, either through the menu bar or through System Preferences; But imagine if there was an application that would simplify this process on the Mac? It exists, and it's called ToothFairy!

The app, developed by C-Command Software, helps when connecting not only AirPods, but any other audio device via Bluetooth (including peripherals such as keyboards and mice). Natively, you need to open the Bluetooth or volume options for Apple W1 chip audio devices in the menu bar and choose the gadget which you want to connect to the Mac; With ToothFairy, just click the icon you assigned to each device to connect quickly.

In addition to improving the pairing process between wireless devices and macOS, the app also improves the quality of the audio connection primarily by ensuring that macOS uses the AAC output codec instead of the SCO in the app settings. The software also supports multiple connections if you have several Bluetooth devices.

As an alternative to native macOS, ToothFairy also offers hotkeys to quickly connect and disconnect gadgets or wireless peripherals. For Beats AirPods or headsets with the W1 chip, you can set them to prevent accidental disconnection by pressing shortcut keys several times.

Ideally, Apple would improve the connection between AirPods and macOS to work as easily as on iOS, which would help (especially) people who plug and unplug wireless headsets into Macs several times a day. As this has not happened yet, ToothFairy is a very simple app that does it all very well.

The app is also available to Setapp subscribers.
