    Wow!
    I have the Mac mini (mid 2011), and it has hardware that actually supports Continuity. Apple just decided they wouldn't support it. Glad I can continue using it!

    Damn you're fast :p

    Yes CAT works fine with Sierra, just get the latest version from github.

    Please report whether or not the new features like auto-unlock work. I can't test this because I don't have any device on iOS 10 and won't for some time.

    Been with the CAT community since the beginning.. But to be honest I've not been active on GitHub the last year

    We are not going to be able to report on the Auto-unlock feature for a while as I believe that is tied with the Apple Watch and there is no public beta for that as far as I know.

    Thanks for the thread. I was wondering if CAT would still work. As soon as I can get Sierra downloaded, I plan on giving it a test drive and see how I like the new OS.

    I wonder if the "Auto-unlock" will be limited to the watch, or whether they will also include the iPhone. I can't imagine it being limited to just the watch.

    Can't get CAT to install, even though I click on "install anyway" from the Security and Privacy options window.

    I downloaded from your attachment. I also downloaded from Github. Same result. No longer have the option to install from anywhere. I would think that clicking on "open anyway" would work.

    Right-Click the app and choose "Open", from there you have the option to open the app!
    I have the problem that I got "Operation not permitted" errors while modifying the kexts. Seems to be a SIP problem.

    Thanks for the tip. Got it installed. To turn off SIP, boot to Command +R > Terminal > enter csrutil disable

    At work at the moment can't respond instantly, but yeah, SIP should be disable off course.

    Handoff isn't working. Text forwarding and Airdrop from and to iPhone 6 and MBP is working. Have logged out and back in (iCloud) on MBP as well as iPhone.

    I just tried signing out and in on with iCloud (again) on MBP and iPhone 6, and still no handoff. The handoff option in General Preferences is checked, and everything in "About this Mac" looks correct, as far as I can remember. Don't know what is going on.

    In the CAT tool to check "System Diagnostics," everything reads "OK" except the following... Can't remember if it was that way in El Capitan or not.
    --- Post Merged, Jun 14, 2016 ---
    I got Handoff working. :cool: I went back and looked over the thread I had started last year for El Capitan. Last time we had problems, cloudpaird was not running. I checked Activity Monitor a little while ago, and sure enough, there was no cloudpaird activity. I followed the steps again per this post from the thread and Handoff is working again.

    @sysfloat - If there is anyway CAT can be updated so we don't have to do the manual fix, it would be much appreciated. Without your work last time, we wouldn't have still been kicking around.
