    I simply can't get AirDrop to work between Yosemite DP 4 and iOS 8 beta 4, on my rMBP and my iPad Air. With previous betas, I could only get my iPad to find my Mac sporadically, but never the other way around.

    Does it work for any of you?

    EDIT: Oops! Please move this to the OS X Yosemite section.

    I'm not running iOS 8 anymore, but when I did, I had to kind of let both my Macbook and the iPhone sit for a minute before I could AirDrop between them.

    Try turning it completely on, and not just for contacts?

    In my case, iPad mini(Retina), iPadAir+iOS8(iOS beta5), iMac(Late 2013), MacBookPro(Ealy 2011) +Yosemite DP5, and Mac mini(OSX9), AirDrop worked well between iMac and iPads. But it did not work between MacBookPro between iMac and iPads.

    Strangely, AirDrop still worked MacBookPro(Yosemite DP5) and Mac mini(OSX9).
