New Mac utility from Guilherme Rambo that gives you two things. First, open your AirPods case next to your Mac and a window will appear, showing the battery life of the case and the earbuds (just like on iOS). And you can click to connect them to your Mac. Second, a very nice Notification Center widget that will show you the battery life of your AirPods along with any iOS devices that trust your Mac.

Both useful and beautiful. AirBuddy looks like it’s part of MacOS — and it should be. $5 or more, on a pay-what-you-think-is-fair basis. (I paid extra — this is worth way more than $5.)
