I have a 15" MBP mid 2010. I also have a 3rd gen iPad 64GB wifi which I have recently discovered (following update to IOS 8.xxlatest) is unable to work with AIR DROP. I thought about upgrading to the iPad Air 2. Fortunately, I didn't as I now discover that my MBP might not work with Air Drop either.
I find NO reference on my MBP to "handoff". My wireless card is the BCM43xx 1.0. According to another community supplied "Continuity Tool", it says I need a new Wireless card. Since this is not a 17" (never seen one), there are NO additional ports to add in a newer wireless card. My wireless in-house network seems to function just fine.
When I click on Air Drop on the side panel, I see my wife's MBP show up. However, I click on it and nothing happens. What am I missing?
QUESTION: Do I need a newer wireless card for AIR DROP to work. I am running Yosemite.
Air Drop should work with my two MBPs. Question is, will they?
