    Haven't been able to use either of these features on any of the developer previews on my rMBP 2014. My iPhone is running 8.4.1 and handoff works perfectly when tested with a rMBP 2012 running 10.10.

    If anyone has some steps or fixes to kickstart handoff and airdrop again please let me know.

    Thanks.

    Yes. Toggled it a few times too. Have also logged in and out of iCloud but still no luck. I feel like I am missing something.

    It worked for me, until my iPhone and Macbook Air updated to respective beta 4.

    Both air drop and handoff/continuity are working fine for me on iOS 9/ El Cap beta 4... Are you on the same wifi network with your mac and your iPhone? It doesn't just work over bluetooth, I don't think.

    (I'm using iOS 9 b4 on an iPhone 6+ and 10.11 b4 on a 2013 rMBP, for the record)

    [EDIT] Ayyye, it's working! Don't know what I did, seeing as they wouldn't pair. Whatever.

    Yeah, I have Bluetooth turned on on both, I've got them on the same Wi-Fi network. I've rebooted each to clear up the memory. Should I pair them and see if it works? I know you're not supposed to have to do that with Bluetooth LE, but I guess it's worth a shot.

    Try the run of the mill routine of logging out and back into iCloud on both devices.
    Also, what I found to work, is toggling both BT and WiFi on the offending Mac.

    I was having these issues with DP 1, some on DP 2, but now it all somehow works. As per usual the performance is less then stellar, probably the Bluetooth protocol is also to blame as the whole low energy functionality and discoverability is a hit and miss.
