Since upgrading to iOS 10 and macOS 10.12 at about the same time, I can no longer handoff calls from my iPhone to my Mac.

When a call comes in I get the notification window appearing on my Mac, as before. When I click the "answer" (or whatever it is) button, it pauses for a moment, gives an error message, and then the iPhone disconnects the call.

BT is turned on on both devices, both are connected to the same WiFi, Handoff is turned on on both machines. Any ideas?

  • I visited about a half dozens such pages and they all said the things I put in the OP - that is, compatible hardware, same network, BT turned on, all the switches turned on. If you know of a page with better testing steps, by all means, post away! – Maury Markowitz Oct 24 '16 at 17:41
  • Well, for starters, posting the actual error message instead of just "an error message" would be very helpful. – tubedogg Oct 24 '16 at 19:05
  • And now it works perfectly. Apparently a bug in macOS 10.12. – Maury Markowitz Oct 25 '16 at 12:27
