Handoff/ Continuity


[link to this post]
 
Apparantly it needs Blootooth LE, which is only on new (~<2 yr old Macs)

there was talk (on other forums) previously of whether an LE dongle would work?!? it apparantly didn't with developer versions... does anyone know if/ how it will work between a newish iPad air and a non-LE MacBook

[edit]
where did my edit go?!?

p.s. the MacBook is clearly capable of running Yosemite...

At the minute no. There have been various hacks attempted and no doubt someone will come up with a solution. that will either use a BT dongle or replacement of the BT board in the Mac. I'm on a 2009 Mac Pro so well out of the range. Some links with other links.

I have an iPhone 5s and an iPad Air... Both now on iOS 8.1

I am still struggling to get then to handoff mails, let alone anything exotic like a Keynote...

Thought I had it just a few mins ago, when an e-mail I started on the iPad, opened on the iPhone, but after making changes it didn't want to reverse the direction and I have not been able to find an icon of which several commentators talk when they have reviewed Yosemite.
