    Hi there,

    I'm trying to re-pair my iPhone as a fresh device to my system. However, it looks like deleting it didn't fully delete it. Take a look at my screenshot. How do I get rid of the "Kev6" option in the drop-down menu when it's not available in the devices preferences. "Kev6" is my iPhone. If I add the iPhone, it lists it in the device preferences, but then I get TWO entries in the drop-down. Any way to just remove all devices / delete all history and just start from scratch?

    There used to be a Bluetooth setting for "name" and "displayed name".
    I've had a keyboard manage to get set where the two are different, and in OS X 10.10, BOTH those names'd show up in my list of bluetooth devices, even though there was only one keyboard; very confusing.
    Try renaming your keyboard. I think that's a contextual menu item now. Doing so might eliminate your mystery device.
