    Handoff stopped working after leaving my iMac and coming back. It was working fine and then I went outside with my iPhone. When I came back, handoff is no longer working. Any ideas on how to reconnect?

    Perhaps this is a bug that is fixed in 8.1....

    Been using the beta of Yosemite for a couple of months and handoff has steadily been improving for me. Been experiencing the same thing though. Sometimes it helps to turn off and on wifi and bluetooth on either the mac or the iphone or both.

    Turning off/on bluetooth on my iPhone seemed to work. Hope this is fixed in 8.1

    Same here. Turned off bluetooth, iMessage and iCloud now my mac can see new docs / emails from the phone but the phone does not show anything I am working on while on the mac (pages, safari or email). Seems to be one way.

    It is very erratic. When I walk away from my iMac the connection seems to break and handoff stops working. Then it sometimes starts to work again on the iPhone. But the iPhone to iMac handoff does not start to work (e.g. no handoff icon in the iMac doc.)
