ToothFairy has updated its app to version 2.6 to include support for AirPods Pro, as well as some other bug fixes and improvements.
According to the developer:
Version 2.6 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.
The improvements listed are:
- Added icons for AirPods Pro, Beats X, Microsoft Surface Earbuds, and an alternate icon for a pair of regular AirPod that are positioned symmetrically rather than offset.
- Adjusted the way battery levels map to gradations in the menu bar gauge.
- Added a button to the About tab to open the ToothFairy manual.
- Worked around a macOS bug that could prevent launching the app after using AirPlay.
- Fixed a regression where the battery level wasn't shown if it was exactly 100%.
- Modernized the localizations.
- Reduced the size of the app.
The update means that users will now be able to see their AirPods Pro within the app once they launch tomorrow. Apple announced the brand new earbuds yesterday, they feature Active Noise Cancellation and cost $249.
