Hi,

I have a MBP 13", running OSX Yosemite (10.10) Beta 3.

I'm trying to pair a Apple Magic Trackpad, and the bluetooth connection seems to be seriously patchy.

Previously, I was able to get it to pair after many attempts. However, after around 15 minutes, OSX said "Connection Lost" for the trackpad.

I removed it, and tried to pair it again. After a while, same message ("Connection Lost") again.

Now, it doesn't seem to be pairing at all. It appears, but if you click Pair, it just sits in Connecting for a while.

Is anybody else away of major issues with Yosemite and Bluetooth trackpads at the moment?

Any known workarounds?

Cheers,
Victor

Also on PB 3, haven't had any issues with any Apple bluetooth devices (keyboard, mouse, trackpad).

Have you tried changing the batteries?

Starting with beta 3 and continuing with beta 4, my Magic Trackpad repeatedly disconnects from my 2012 Retina MBP. I have re-paired the trackpad and did a PRAM reset to no avail. I filed a bug report with Apple following beta 3.

Yosemite / Magic Mouse still broken in GA release

Just installed the Official Yosemite release and my magic mouse doesn't work. When it DOES connect it is lethargic and unusable, but most times the MacBookPro just loses connection to it and then it cant see it! :mad:
