You are not the only one. It is the iPhone 5 which features a new bluetooth 4 platform as opposed to 2.1 for the iPhone 4s.

Make sure that your macbook is compatible with bluetooth 4.

Hmmm, iPhone 4S is bluetooth 4, not 2.1. There is an issue with the 5's - that causes all sorts of issues including delayed microphone connection, spotty connection, failure to recognize some bt devices. Seems it could be a hardware issue as not everyone is experiencing the problems.

I had the same question dealing with connecting ip5 to mid - 2012 MacBook Air and turns out Apple doesn't want you to connect and transfer like that. Please see the attached screen capture of macrumors community explaining this.
