    iPod Bluetooth with flashed iPod 7th Gen

    So I've been trying out bluetooth transmitters for this iPod, and I'm having mixed results. I use Airpods 3. First device, connected by 30 pin, sort of worked, but was soo loud and I couldn't turn the volume down. Refunded for that. Second device, connected by AUX, which I'm using right now...

    Horrible bluetooth input lag 12.6

    So.. yeah. Basically the title. Ever since the 12.6 Monterey update, my magic keyboard and trackpad are laggy as hell. Except when I plug them in, then it's fine. So it has to be bluetooth right? My wired mouse is 100 percent solid. Anyone else with this issue? I'm on a 2020 iMac if that matters..

    BlueTooth Razer Orochi Mouse no longer pairing

    I just dug out my old Razer Orochi which used to work well with my MacBook Pro. Both Mac Studio and MacBook Pro 13" M1 are now running Ventura B7, and I cannot get the mouse to pair. It shows up in pairing mode, but the connect process times out on both systems. Toggling BlueTooth power does not...

    [SOLVED] Apple Arcade on M2 Macbook Air, bluetooth stuttering.

    Hello everyone, I received my M2 MBA, I'm really impressed by its performance (coming from Intel MBP... ). I just experienced something strange that I can't explained. I paired with it my Sony WH-1000xm4 headphones, enabled AAC via the Terminal as I've done already on my previous machine...

    Connect Airpods Pro to Watch without iPhone being nearby

    Is it possible to connect an AirPods Pro (or any other regular bluetooth headset like Sony WI-C200) to an Apple Watch Series 7 Cellular with the iPhone being far away ?

    Very low quality playback on macOS (good on iOS)

    Hello. I recently got a pair of Airpods Pro as a gift and while I use different and better sounding equipment when I'm listening to music, they're very convenient to be used in other instances. The Airpods Pro work perfectly on iOS, but unfortunately they sound horrible when used on macOS...

    Hey gang. When I get in the car, the phone connects to the the stereo and music plays right away. The issue is that if making call or receiving a call I am forced to select which blue tooth device I want to connect to. The only other device attached is my fitbit. I have deleted the connection...

    Dead Apple A1016 Bluetooth Keyboard. Is there a way to revive it?

    The title might be a bit misleading, but let me explain. Two months ago, a friend of mine gave me an Apple A1016 keyboard, that he got for 5€. I couldn't pair it with anything at first, but I soon found out that I have to type in a "secret" PIN (0000 in my case), before I enter the pairing...

    Bluetooth not working

    One of my colleagues has a Mac Mini 2018. I am not in IT but our company doesn't have IT support and because I seemingly know more than most about computers most issues fall to me. I can solve most but this has stumped me. Bluetooth had been working absolutely fine, but has recently stopped...

    macOS 12.4 and bluetooth problems

    MacOS 12.4 has made the reliability of m Apple Wireless Keyboard and Trackpad much worse. I had almost no problems with my 2015 MBP and first/second gen keyboard and trackpad (clamshell mode). The Apple 2021 14" MBP M1 Max and new wireless keyboard and trackpad were far less reliable, with a...

    Monterey and Bluetooth problems with DualShock 4 on GeForceNOW

    Hello I’ve been a user of GeforceNow for a long time, mostly on Big Sur and Catalina, with my DualShock 4, with no issues. Everything just worked, the Bluetooth connection with the controller was reliable, and if some day were issues, those were with the service, not with the controller...

    2021 wireless keyboard and trackpad far worse than 2015

    For years I used the Apple wireless keyboard and trackpad with my 2015 MBP (15" and 13") in clamshell mode. These I think were first gen but not sure - they were what Apple was selling in 2015. Now I have had several months with a 2021 MBP 14 Max with the current wireless keyboard (non finger...

    Setting up the Studio Kinda Sucks (Updated)

    Today was supposed to be fun, and interesting. Instead it was disappointing and frustrating. I “tore down” my 27” iMac setup. Reran all the needed wires, cleaned, etc. Then I set the Studio in place, then the monitor. Powered it on, and let it get through those first boots. Then I plugged in...
