TL;DR: Seamlessly connect your Airpods to your Mac with the AirBuddy app, on sale for $8.99 — a 10% savings — as of Jan. 31.
Linking a pair of AirPods to a Mac requires a few more steps than linking them to an iPhone or iPad. While clicking a few more times is not necessarily a pressing issue, if it really bothers you, the AirBuddy app can make things easier.
On the app, you’ll be able to see the current status and battery life of your Apple AirPods via your Mac, the same way you can on an iPhone or iPad. You’ll also have the option to quickly change listening modes, microphone input, and output volume with a simple keyboard shortcut — you won’t have to open System Preferences or the Bluetooth menu.
AirBuddy also gives you an overview of all of your nearby devices and groups them based on their relationships to one another. For instance, if you have your Mac, Magic Mouse, AirPods, iPhone, and Apple Watch all turned on at the same time, AirBuddy will automatically group your iPhone and Apple Watch and Mac and Magic Mouse. Depending on where you open your AirPods case, they’ll either be grouped with your Mac or iPhone.
