AirBuddy brings the same AirPods experience you have on iOS to the Mac. Open your AirPods case next to your Mac to see the status right away, just like it works on your iPhone or iPad. AirBuddy lives in your Menu Bar and can also show battery information for your iPhone, iPad, Apple Watch, Mouse, Keyboard, and more.

If you don’t see its widgets listed in the “Edit Widgets” screen, try clicking “Clear Widget Cache” in AirBuddy Settings under “Advanced”.
