To setup Bluetooth keyboard:

  1. Go to System Preferences app → Keyboard → Keyboard.

  2. Click on Set Up Bluetooth Keyboard... button shown at the bottom.

Now, the Bluetooth icon may have been removed from System Preferences app.

To get the Bluetooth icon back again:

  1. With System Preferences app, click View → Customize... in the Menu bar.

  1. Select the checkbox besides the Bluetooth icon and tap Done button shown in the toolbar.

  1. Voila! Bluetooth icon is back again in System Preferences.
