Enabling AAC and aptX Codecs for Bluetooth on MacOS

To see which codec is currently active, press the Option/Alt key before pressing the Bluetooth icon in the menu bar. If the Bluetooth device supports on of the superior codecs, type one of the following commends in the terminal to enable it.

sudo defaults write bluetoothaudiod "Enable AAC codec" -bool true
sudo defaults write bluetoothaudiod "Enable AptX codec" -bool true

To disable, replace true with false.
