    I have 2 MBP, an Ipad Mini and my Iphone 6 that all worked pretty well with handoff and continuity.
    But now with the iphone 7 on ios 10, ive gotten no love.
    No handoff, no air drop, nothing. MBP and iphone 7 are paired, all icloud is up to date (actually signed out and in of icloud on iphone 7, and had all my apple pay cards removed, forgot that one :(
    But still nothing

    Any thoughts? Anyone else experiencing problems with with continuity?

    Mine still works great...airdrop, handoff, calls, hotspot, and SMS all work. Here is Apple's support document about Continuity. For handoff specifically, it says you have to be on the same wifi network, with bluetooth turned on, and signed into iCloud with the same AppleID. Handoff has to be turned on in Settings > General.


    If you're sure the settings are all correct, perhaps you should restart the phone.

    No problems to far. Is it turned on in your IP7 settings?

    I just got my iPhone 7 and restored it from my 6s. the phone won't see my mac mini or iPad pro the old phone saw them both. the iPad and mini see each other. handoff seems to work from my phone at least to open the safari page. I tried paring the phone and mini on bluetooth and I see the same code but get the message the mac mini is incompatible. the mini is the newest model. I checked my wises iPad and phone (no 7 yet) and they do airdrop fine.
