I upgraded the built-in WiFi cards for my 2008 and 2012 Mac Pros. It got me Continuity and the higher 802.11ac speeds, along with AirDrop (peer-to-peer WiFi). To enjoy 802.11ac speeds (up to 1300Mbps if you're sitting right next to it), you need to also upgrade your router or access point (hereafter referred to as AP). You also have to have a fast enough ...

I had the same problem and FINALLY found a workable solution. Run this in your terminal. After this you just need to manually connect to your bluetooth audio system. sudo defaults write /Library/Preferences/com.apple.Bluetooth.plist DontPageAudioDevices 1

I have found yet another unofficial solution! it worked for me and i hope the same to you. i believe the macbook utilizes bluetooth in the background for handoff and FaceTime. i believe it searches occasionally for data or cues that are sent from secondary devices or stays quietly paired with a device you may already have (causing gaps in bluetooth ...

If you use the bluetooth menu item, disconnect from any devices that you don't want to show the message. You could also automate that UI control with Automator. Open that and then make an automation action that uses the "Watch Me Do" tool to record the things you select. That way you could assign a keyboard shortcut to have both devices disconnect and ...

Apple will give you instructions on how to enable bluetooth diagnostics if you reach out to their support organization.

If left on overnight, perhaps the work machine runs a script of some sort every night and applies changes that affect the functionallity of bluetooth. Symantec shouldn't be related to the symptoms your machine is experiencing. It is also possible that the bluetooth chip is faulty (but that's rather unlikely). Are others experiencing the same or is it just ...

I don't think that this is possible. If one has a Bluetooth headset connected with his iPhone, all audio will be played through the headset, not the iPhone. You can keep the devices paired and disconnected and that will save a lot of time when you switch to and from bluetooth headsets. Since the software won't do what you hoped, an option would be to look ...

Have one additional mouse with the cable. First go to System Preferences -> Mouse, set up Bluetooth mouse, click your mouse, remove it. Then turn Wi-Fi off. Then search for mouse again and Mac will find it. Now it works!

The battery status of bluetooth connected devices is usually displayed when you click on the bluetooth menu bar icon (the icons in the top right). I might be slightly mistaken: It could also be in a submenu of said menu. You might need to enable the icon. This can be done in System Preferences/Bluetooth → Show Bluetooth in menu bar.

Yes it happened to me also. After you launch the app, wait a few seconds and it will give you the option to join Apple Music, or go to your music. Click "Go To My Music" and you will be all set. If you don't see these options make sure you have an Internet connection and wait a few seconds.

As a sidenote, the phones WiFi chip seems to be defective, WiFi will work no matter how old the iOS-version is. Maybe try resetting network settings in Settings - General. Anyhow - I believe your only option will be to use a cable to get the pictures off the phone. Have you tried all the computers you have at home? Some devices give out more juice than ...

J.Y Han's answer for Mavericks 10.9 no longer works with Yosemite 10.10. Go to System Preferences -> Bluetooth. Now, instead of right-clicking the device, hold down CTRL and left-click. You will now see a menu with an option to rename the device.

Resolution: I installed Yosemite on an external drive so that I could find all the system files related to audio (using EasyFind, a great search utility for Mac), compare them to my existing system for any file size mismatches, and then replace the offending file(s). The offending file was found in /Library/Audio/Plug-Ins/HAL and was most likely ...

After changing 2 magic mouses, I found out that the constant disconnection was due to loose battery contact. I slot some paper in between the batteries to limit their movement and the disconnection issue is solved.

So, I solved it by going back to OSX, removed the trackpad from the Bluetooth settings, then disabled bluetooth. I paired the trackpad with a tablet to test, and it paired, so I logged back to windows 10, then it paired with the '0000' code. Strange, but it worked.
