I had my uninsured iPhone stolen and have bought a cheap Panasonic Eluga 500 as a makedo until I save up enough for another iPhone. Why can't I pair this phone with my iMac over Bluetooth. I have a truly ancient Nokia that pairs so why not this Panasonic? Are there certain brands that Apple doesn't like?
If you open Bluetooth to iMac and iPhone and also use the same Apple ID on both, these two device will “automatically” connect to each other.
But the usage of those connections are heavily limited. Here’s some example
- Personal Hotspot
and some few more that I tend to forget.
