I have the same problem with my MacBook Pro Retina 13" 2014 on Yosemite 10.10.3 and 10.10.4 with Apple AirPort. My problem is not depended on bluetooth state at all. Wife's MacBook Air have no problems at all, looks like it does not support 802.11ac at all - only 802.11n. So I think the problem is in 802.11ac. Just found how to fix it – this is not good ...

I have a Macbook Pro 15" 2011 and an IPhone 6 plus. These headphones worked perfectly with the iphone 6 but would stutter with the macbook which has an older bluetooth adapter. I had a spare usb bluetooth 4.0 adapter lying around the house which I bought for very little money off amazon and with that connected the headphones work flawlessly again. Some ...

Yes, as @Buscar웃SD said, you can use an external Bluetooth adapter. On my Macbook Pro 13" I had to use Apple's Bluetooth Explorer to set my USB adapter as the active controller. This page describes how to download and use Bluetooth Explorer.

After trying to run the scripts suggested by other answers, unloading and reloading both the kext and the bluetooth daemon, my bluetooth still wasn't responding. However, I have discovered that if Yosemite sleeps with VMWare running and bluetooth doesn't work when the OS is woken up, closing VMWare rectifies the issue. It seems that the drivers in VMWare ...

thanks for the suggestion. I have now tried the hardware diagnostics test, however the short and full tests both cam back clear so no issue with the hardware. I bought it from an auction site that specialise in liquidation stock and repossessions e.t.c so have no idea who previously owned it. I would assume it would be illegal to sell somebody's computer ...

I assume you mean the early 2015 MacBook 12". Apple has stated they now only support Windows 8 and higher on the new MacBook 12". It also appears Apple has dropped emulated BIOS support in Boot Camp, meaning Windows can only be installed in EFI mode on the MacBook 12". This would make sense as emulated BIOS is an overhead to maintain and EFI is mature on ...

You can't easily downgrade your iPhone. This is discussed here on AD.SE. Searching on Google I see some people claiming it can be done, but I can't and won't confirm myself because of the bricking risks involved. Good news is, from threads at the Apple forums, it looks like you just have to pair your iPhone and speaker again. In your phone go to Settings ...

This (http://forums.macrumors.com/threads/how-to-stop-itunes-from-opening-with-bluetooth-speakers.1666895/) worked for me -- In Finder go to Applications and show package contents on iTunes.app. Inside the MacOS folder there is a unix script called iTunes, I renamed it iTunesclosed. Also renamed ituneshelper.app to ituneshelpdisabled.app Remove the ...

I don't know of any one OS X app that can do all of that for you, but here are a few recommendations. Turn your Mac into an AirPlay Speaker Airfoil from Rouge Amoeba works great for me to stream podcasts, music, radio, etc. from iOS devices to my MacBook Pro (Mid 2012). Note that you'll need to also install Airfoil Speakers which is a free, separate ...

I tried pairing an Android (4.2.x) phone (Alcatel One Touch Idol X) to a MBP: no love. I couldn't use the MBP as an audio output directly. It appeared to be a way to use the phone as a Bluetooth modem but I don't have a SIM for it so I did not try. There are apps on the Google Play Store that allow Android to use AirPlay (I tried AllCast with dubious ...

Thanks to Tyilo from the comments on the accepted answer, I have modified his script to install sleepwatcher and append to the script some code that will not only unload the Bluetooth driver (com.apple.iokit.BroadcomBluetoothHostControllerUSBTransport), but also restart blued, Apple's Bluetooth daemon. The script can be found here: ...
