This handy shortcut will allow you to pair your AirPods in just one click, rather than going to Bluetooth>YourAirPodsNameHere>Connect. In the long run it could save you up to 18 min each year!

  1. Open AppleScript or Script Editor, whichever comes up for you.

    • "Are we done yet?" No, thanks for asking.

    • Next, we have to configure the Script. First, have a look at my image and select the group of text I circled. Replace that text with the name of your AirPods. Keep the quotation marks around the name or the Script will not function.

    • For example, my AirPods are named "Jet the Hawk".

    • You may want to rename your AirPods to a different name without apostrophes because I could not get this to work when my AirPods were named "Aaron's AirPods".

    • Now press Command + S at the same time to save the file. Name it Connect to AirPods and save it in Application file format. Save it to your desktop.

    • The first time you run this Application you will need to allot it permissions to control system functions otherwise it will throw errors.

    • Go to System Preferences > Security & Privacy > Accessibility > Privacy

    • Click the lock and enter your admin username and password.

    • Check the box to the left of Connect to AirPods

    • This step is completely optional, you can be done here for it to work properly. Click the App twice in order for it to connect to your AirPods.

    • Creating a custom App icon is totally optional, but here's how you do it.

    • Download Image2Icon from the Mac App Store. It is completely free, no worries.

      • You can download Image2Icon here.

    • Find a good image to use as your App icon, preferably a .png icon.

    • I used this image here as my icon, you can use it if you want.

    • Now, open Image2Icon and drag and drop the image you want as the icon into the Image2Icon window.

    • Drag the Connect to AirPods Application into the Image2Icon window

    • You should see your Application with the icon you selected with now. You may need to right click it and open it thru there because it probably will say it is from an unidentified developer and block it. You will need to be an admin to bypass this too.
