Bluetooth Continuity/Handoff

Recommended Posts

Hi everyone,

I have a mid-2011 iMac 27".  This means that my system's Continuity/Handoff function is limited. If I am not mistaken, this is because of the Bluetooth version my system supports.  My question is can I get the full Continuity/Handoff function if I get one of those Bluetooth USB dongles sold in Amazon, instead of me getting a new iMac.  I see there is a version that supports Bluetooth 3.0 and another that supports Bluetooth 4.0.

Any help would be very much appreciated.

Thank you.

Hey @Francis_Reyes, I tied doing this on my old 2011 MacBook Pro and was never really successful, but it's supposedly possible. The tool that was recommended is https://github.com/dokterdok/Continuity-Activation-Tool. It looks like they say this is "mostly working" with macOS Sierra. When I tried it I remember it being really important to get the correct dongle as only certain ones seem to be supported. If you do try and get it working can you report back here to let us know? Thanks.
