    I really only had it for ease of use of iPhoto. Take a pic on my phone and it would go right into iPhoto on my MacBook. I was told that now I have to go into iCloud under the Shared section and look at it in My Photo Stream. It's not important, but I was just wondering why I couldn't get them to pair. I was getting network errors and errors saying my MBA wasn't a supported device.

    Is this how it's supposed to be?
    Not sure as I've never heard of what you are describing as far as transferring photos to iPhoto. I've tried pairing my phones with a Mac before and it didn't work. But then I realized that it wasn't needed for Continuity or Handoff or any of those cool features.
    One thing you could try if you don't want to use My PhotoStream to get photos to the Mac, is to use Airdrop. This would get them onto the Mac and from there you could add them to iPhoto.

    I guess when it was working it wasn't supposed to be working! LOL

    Everything is good now that I understand how it's supposed to be used. Thanks for the help.

    Does your Mac meet the requirements listed via the following link?

    I am in the same boat here. I am trying to pair my iPhone 6 to my rMBP 15 (late 2013) and they cant pair. The message is very strange:

    "Connection Unsuccessful, XXXXX MacBook PRo not supported, Forget Device"

    I am trying to share the Wifi my Mac is connected to, over Bluetooth so that I can browse through my iPhone. This doesn't seem to be a so crazy thing what I am trying to do. And the message doesn't make any sense....It sounds like an Apple glitch, I am using iOS 8.3 and OSX 10.10.3.

    for what it's worth, I couldn't get an iPhone 6+ and an iPhone 6S+ to pair to a couple of macs, but when I enabled Personal Hotspot on a given iPhone and connected to hotspot (from bluetooth symbol on menu), it seemed to fix the pairing problem!

    [on one of the phones I did install authy before starting this, but I didn't really know what I was doing and I'm 99% sure it didn't do anything...]

    when you try to airdrop photos don't let the phone time out or go to sleep, i did that and it failed the second time i sent photos via airdrop i kept my finger on the screen so it wouldn't time out and was finished sending..it delivered the photos to another phone perfectly..about 75 photos

    I may have solved it. Make sure your personal hotspot switch is turned on. It is in your settings.
