    Hello, guys. For some reason I can't connect my AirPods to Mac mini late 2012, the respring icon in the top bar stops spinning as shown in the picture. I've tried everything, but nothing helps me. I know for sure that it can't be an issue with the wireless module 'cause Wi-Fi works. My Mac is running High Sierra.

    Do you have any USB3 devices attached? If so, remove them and try to pair again.

    If that fixed the problem, then you have USB3 interference which is notorious for wrecking bluetooth.

    Does a wired keyboard count as a USB 3 interference? If so, that might be the reason, because I'm out of ideas rn

    No a keyboard is fine.

    A typical culprit would be an external USB3 drive. If that's not it, sorry I don't know.
