after upgrade to El Capitan, I don't get Instant Hotspot and Handoff to work (I am particularly interested in the possibility to make phone calls using my iPhone 5 from my Mac). It was working on Yosemite.

Now I saw on Apple Support that info about the compatibility:

Handoff and Instant Hotspot

Handoff and Instant Hotspot are supported by the following Mac models, and require OS X Yosemite:

MacBook Air (Mid 2012 and later)
MacBook Pro (Mid 2012 and later)
MacBook (Retina, 12-inch, Early 2015)
iMac (Late 2012 and later)
Mac mini (Late 2012 and later)
Mac Pro (Late 2013)

Now I have a MacBook Pro (Retina, 15-inch, Early 2013) and it does not seem to be mentioned here.

My Question: can I use Handoff and Instant Hotspot with my MacBook Pro Retina?

Becauese I can't seem to be able to set it up (enabled in System Preferences -> General -> Allow Handoff is enabled) in FaceTime.

  • I don't know why it isn't working, but your computer is included in "MacBook Pro (Mid 2012 and later)."
