    Anyone else having trouble setting up handoff ? I have a iphone 6 and macbook retina 2012, turned on bluetooth for both devices..(but I can't seem to pair the two devices )

    Do I need to pair these devices in order to use handoff ? It says that my macbook pro is not supported to pair..

    There are many many posts about this, so I will submit the fix that worked for me in several threads in the hope that it helps people:

    I was struggling yesterday, and was having very mixed results ranging from handoff not working at all to it working on my iPhone only. I found an article offering a suggested fix, and it worked for me.

    It appears to me that the "missing link" is the FaceTime setup (this was the only article I found that referenced FaceTime settings).

    In my case, I had to sign into FaceTime using my AppleID (which I believe was set in the past, possibly disconnected at some point). Anyhow, it does make sense that this would be a potential gap in Handoff functioning, and it corrected my issue immediately.

    Good luck...this is clearly not an example of "it just works".
