There are two versions of AirDrop. The Mac-to-Mac AirDrop that was introduced in Lion works with old Bluetooth modules. The Mac-to-iDevice AirDrop that was introduced in Yosemite only works with newer modules (2012 or later).

its not hardware. I degraded to 8.3 and now it is consistently dropping Bluetooth to both my car and headset. That never happened before. Thanks Apple. Let's. Yosemite degrade was locking system for a couple minutes after it was sleeping.

If your playlists are synced to the Watch. To check, put the Watch in Airplane mode and then try to play your music. If it plays, it's synced. If not, search Apple for how to sync playlists.

Unfortunately, this is not possible. In previous versions of iOS you could change a setting in Keyboards, however it doesn't seem to work in iOS 8. Sorry :(

Unfortunately, this is not possible. The reason you can Airplay with your phone and not your Mac, is due to the fact that the Jawbone Mini app appears to convert the Bluetooth speaker to an Airplay device as shown here. https://jawbone.com/kb/articles/JawboneappiOS.html and here ...

Bluetooth and AirPlay are completely different technologies. You can't send audio over wifi (AirPlay) to a device with only BlueTooth reception. If you want to AirPlay to this particular speaker, you'd need to physically hook it up to an iOS or OSX device or an AirPort Express or create your own AirPort receiver with something like a Raspberry Pi that you ...

OK, I got this idea: maybe it's the headset that is preventing the pairing from happening (remember I removed the pairing on the Mac, but on the headset it might still be somehow locked with the previous pairing for this specific device). When I read the manual a while ago I remember there was a way to clear the pairing settings. So I did that, and voilá!, ...

In System Preferences under 'Bluetooth', try turning Bluetooth off and then on again. Under 'Devices' your Mac should start discovering Bluetooth devices within range (make sure you are within range of your speakers when you do this). If that doesn't work, make sure your speakers are connected to power or that their batteries are new/charged.

You cannot use the same Bluetooth device profile with more than one deivce at the same time. You won't be able to do what you want to do. For a listing of all the different profiles, see this Wikipedia entry. But I can have multiple Bluetooth devices paired to my iPhone. I have a keyobard, a headset and speakers. Each uses a different profile. Your ...

The question you are asking seems unclear, but I think you are asking if you can share internet connectivity from your computer to your iPhone (or other iOS devices) via Bluetooth. In this case the answer is no this is not possible, however you can share via Wi-Fi. You can share (tether) your iPhone, or Cellular iPad's data connections to your computer via ...
