Toggle AirPods connectivity (with a Hotkey!)

“Siri…connect AirPods”
“I’m sorry Jason, I can’t do that”

Dang, another basic personal assistant maneuverer flubbed by Siri!

A quick DuckDuckGo search yielded a suitable AppleScript Josh Johnson of Creative Market had whipped together. See his Medium post for other ideas on how to trigger this. I immediately opted for the Alfred Workflow route as it’s my Launcher of choice for the past few years.

Not one to just disembark the train here I extended the functionality of the script a little to toggle ON/OFF the connectivity and wrapped it all tidily up in an Alfred Workflow.

Revised script, workflow and complete instructions on Github.
