    I have a mystery device that is listed as "connected" (both in System Profile and in the bluetooth menu) but does not appear as a paired device (i.e., that I could delete):

    Devices (Paired, Configured, etc.):
    54-30-5f-4d-f6-fb:
    Address: 54-30-5F-4D-F6-FB
    Random Address: Yes
    Resolvable Address: Yes
    Services:
    Paired: No
    Configured: No
    Connected: Yes
    Class of Device: Low Energy
    AFH: On
    AFH Map: 1f
    RSSI: -42
    Role: Peripheral
    Connection Mode: Active Mode
    Interval: 0 ms


    How do I go about identifying what this mystery device is, and how do I get rid of it? Importantly, there are other entries for my trackpad, keyboard, and phone, so I have no idea what it is.

    Thanks in advance,

    Just here to say I have this too! I think it must be a bug.

    I looked up the device MAC address here: http://aruljohn.com/mac/54E43A and it shows it as belonging to Apple.

    It's not my iPhone or iPad but it may be the actual Bluetooth stack for my Mac mini - haven't checked yet. I also wondered if it was connected to running VMware Fusion - do you have this installed?

    I'm running 10.10.3 on a late 2012 Mac mini.

    I did try searching for your mystery address on the site I linked but nothing came up - but the addresses do both start 54-

    Anyone else got this too?

    Turns out its my iPad so I suspect yours is something similar too. Why its there I don't know as I have never paid it with my Mac. I suspect its not meant to be visible as its used for handoff etc.
