The blog’s author has accumulated means in a step-by-step tutorial from different creators to connect your AirPods automatically to whatever device your are using currently. Very interesting. I am not sure, if I will go down this absolute automation route but it is definitely food for thought.
I think it should work for any Bluetooth headphones. I did it with my Powerbeats pro without issue. I also just made a simple shortcut to “take” the connection on my iPad or iPhone, I’ve been using both for zoom, conference calls etc so having an easy button to flip the connection is very helpful.
And if you have BetterTouchTool, you can use the same script and create a menubar item. Or if you have Keyboard Maestro, you can use it in a palette. That is if you don’t wanna use up a spot on your dock.
