    At least I think it started with 10.3. ;) Anyway, as the title says, when I launch certain apps they prompt me to turn on Bluetooth to connect to accessories. I searched and see it's been reported for years but other than devs writing their apps differently is there a solution to stop this behavior other than turning on Bluetooth? TIA

    I was thinking that perhaps it might have to do something with some accessibility related settings, but trying to look up some more about that message makes it seem like it's related to location/iBeacon type of services:

    Do you have any bluetooth devices that you connect to or have connected to and are perhaps still saved?

    Thx and I'll review the links. Four devices total: Two car stereos, a speaker, and a light control.
