I read that Airdrop between iOS is since the MBP mid-2012. Although I have that Macbook I can't see my iPhone and viceversa. What can be the problem or the info that I'm misunderstanding?

PS: I have El Capitan but didn't make a clean installation.

Thanks in advance.

    Do you have the latest software updates, El Capitan 10.11.1 and iOS 9.1? – user24601 Oct 25 '15 at 23:53
  • Yes, they are with the lastest updates – Zrakk Oct 26 '15 at 21:02
  • Actually you can get airdrop working also on other models. I found this solution: Continuity Activation Tool codeload.github.com/dokterdok/Continuity-Activation-Tool/zip/… – ozw1z5rd Oct 14 '17 at 14:44

Found a post which gives this advice:

Turn off bluetooth on your mac, delete: /Library/Preferences/com.apple.Bluetooth.plist turn bluetooth back on

I tried this and can confirm that it fixed the problem for me.
