Updated/Better Answer: 1) This new script doesn't flash. 2) For reasons unbeknownst to man and logic (or just me), applescript sometimes/almost-always fails to Turn Bluetooth Off, if the System Preference window is in the background. Instead of turning off, what actually occurs is that Bluetooth immediately re-enable itself, so the pane is in a fresh ...

I am not sure sharing an Internet connection over Bluetooth works on osx. If it does, it should work like this: Go to System Settings > Sharing Select "Internet Sharing" but do not click the checkbox yet on the right, select 'share your connection from:' 'Wifi' below, check 'Bluetooth PAN' if it exists Now check the Internet Sharing checkbox on the left. ...

Bonjour Prior, to Yosemite this could be done via launchctl, so using: sudo launchctl unload -w /System/Library/LaunchDaemons/com.apple.mDNSResponder.plist would turn Bonjour off, and to turn it back on: sudo launchctl load -w /System/Library/LaunchDaemons/com.apple.mDNSResponder.plist Unfortunately /usr/sbin/mDNSResponder is not found on Yosemite. A ...

These troubleshooting steps helped me resolve this on one account: delete all pairing records in BlueTooth (Or at least all iOS pairing records) and then power down the Mac. disable the setting to disable "iPhone Cellular Calls" in the FaceTime part of the settings app. power down the iPhone 5 and start it back up. Don't launch any apps on the phone ...

Connected only means the devices are connected via BT pan. Your WiFi connection to Internet is not been shared. That could be caused by DNS server settings problem. When you configured the IP settings "manually" did you set the specific DNS sever IPs respective to your InternetServiceProvider (ISP)? Also---Try going into network settings>change your ...

Bluetooth needs to be in advertising mode for Yosemite's Handoff to work. To disable Handoff in Mac Yosemite: Select System Prefs > General and uncheck "Allow Handoff between this Mac and your iCloud devices".

I had the same issue. So I changed the batteries on the keyboard, turned the keyboard ON and then restarted the computer. It connected then. I found that if the computer is dotted up and not the keyboard it won't connect. Hope this works.

From ArsTechnica: Unlike Handoff, the feature [phone calls] doesn’t appear to use Bluetooth at all, and unlike AirDrop, it doesn’t require your device to support peer-to-peer Wi-Fi connections. Unlike so many of the other Continuity features, this one looks like it should work fine even if you’re using an iPhone 4S with an iMac or MacBook Pro from 2007. ...

My mid-2011 mb air supports Bluetooth LE and Bluetooth 4, yet apple has prescribed that it shall not support handoff. The LMP Version required for handoff, 0x6, is also supported. Why apple decided to not include support for handoff/continuity our mb air models when we have the hardware in place to run it needs further explanation from apple.

Follow this guide, works on the release from yesterday as well, my Macbook Air 2011 is working great. It's a workaround for sure, and if you are not comfortable with editing kext files... Run! http://forums.macrumors.com/showpost.php?p=20015070&postcount=609

I found a answer for you on our sister site. Connect an iPhone to Arduino over Bluetooth There are several ways to connect Bluetooth LE devices to the Arduino. One I've used is the RedBearLabs BLE Shield.

I've had this same exact issue with a Bluetooth apple magic mouse. The culprit for me was the rechargeable batteries that I was using. Before I changed the batteries it would constantly lose connectivity and then connect again a few seconds later. It was very frustrating. Did your keyboard and touchpad come with any drivers? If so are the up to date?

It uses Bluetooth to locate the Air Drop enabled device & create device to device Wi-Fi link (Wi-Fi Direct) to transfer files

As far as I know, they are using different BT profiles so It's not possible. HC-05 is using SPP which iOS does not support.

I was able to overcome the problem with this quick fix. So whenever you loose bluetooth connectivity just run the following commands in the terminal $ sudo kextunload -b com.apple.iokit.BroadcomBluetoothHostControllerUSBTransport $ sudo kextload -b com.apple.iokit.BroadcomBluetoothHostControllerUSBTransport You will regain connectivity.

Yes, some Bluetooth headphones, speakers and hands-free car audio systems have Siri functionality, the Bluetooth device acts as a speaker/mic with action buttons, one commonly found being the Call button. So, in answer to your question, yes it's possible with the right equipment.
