    Hi everyone,

    I have a Mid-2011 MBA, and when I try to turn on handoff, there is no option available. I checked my LMP version, and it is 0x6; but when I go to system preferences > general, I don't see any options. Any insight?

    Thanks so much.

    The consensus is that it MIGHT show up in the official release. FWIW, I also have a 2011 MBA and it's not showing up,

    Supposedly, it works under the Developer Preview

    In the middle of several books.
    Even though I only have a late 2011 MBP, the handoff option did show and was on by default under general settings, in previous DP builds. It stopped showing up in DP 7 & 8 builds.

    It is rather curious that it shows for some people. Clearly, you would think it would show for you gents.

    I am running on PB 3...from what I've heard, it shows up for those running the DPs, but not the PBs

    I'm on PB3 and it's working for me on my 2013 13" MBP, so I don't think that's the case.

    imac with PB3 and handoff does not appear under Settings --> General.

    Thought it was because iphone / ipad bluetooth wasn't enabled, but didn't help
