    With the developer beta preview release and iOS 8, will I be able to use this feature right away? Mostly interested in the ability to place and receive phone calls on my Mac and also the ability to send and receive traditional SMS messages straight from iMessage app.

    I think it might require Bluetooth LE. At least I can't for the life of me get Handoff going on a mid-2009 macbook pro. (I've installed iOS 8 on an iPad so no phone usage).

    Yeah, something is funky with it. I see my Mac Air in bluetooth and vice versa, my Air sees my iPhone 5 but when I try to connect it says, "Unsuccessful, make sure the Macbook Air is on and in range" meanwhile the two are right next to each other.

    Same happening to me

    At least the above post is reassuring, since he's running a 2013 Macbook Air...hopefully my MBP isn't too old for it

    handoff failure..

    Same happens to me with MBA 2013 and iPhone 5.. however I found that if I try to make the bluetooth connection with my iPhone to my mac book air it connects fine.. then on my Mac bluetooth I see a strange bluetooth connection that is not my iPhone or at least it doesn't seem to think it is.. it says 4418-9b-a6-dd-5d and shows as a connected device? Handoff still does not work at this point either.. so no luck there.. any ideas?

    Continuity and Handoff

    Have a 2012 rMBP and iPhone 5s on 10.10 and ios8

    Airdrop works fine but Continuity and Handoff - nothing. First thing I noted was the 5s and rMBP can't connect via Bluetooth - so could this be the issue?.

    The only other issue is my iPAD 3 does not have Pano in the camera but I am impressed by the exposure control - that was a long time coming.

    These features might not be fully implemented into DP1, just as Dark Mode has not been added yet.
