Score a saving on iPad Pro (2021): $100 off at Amazon

    On my iMac, Handoff worked without problems with Yosemite, but since the arrival of El Capitan, no luck.
    Between iPhone (9.1) iPad (9.1) and Watch (2.0.1) no problem. Handoff and instant hotspot work flawlessly.

    But on the mac side (now with 10.11.1), no luck.

    The System informations show that I am handoff compatible

    Handoff is enabled in System preferences

    iCloud is enabled on all devices, which are inches apart from one another and all on the same wifi

    The fact that handoff/instant hotspot work from iDevice to iDevice tend to hint at a Os X problem, so I did a complete reinstall yesterday after the arrival of 10.11.1, but no luck.

    Any idea?

    Note that I already did all the usual raindance (Sign out/in of iCloud, bluetooth off/on, wifi Off/on, PRAM)...

    Note also that 5 months ago, I swapped the wifi/bluetooth module of my iMac (2011 model) for an apple / broadcom BCM94360CD to have Wifi AC & Bluetooth 4.0 and this worked flawlessly under Yosemite, without any modification to the software needed

    I am not experiencing this at all. Did you download the 10.11.1 update that came out yesterday? It could alleviate the problem as it comes with a number of fixes.

    As said in my original post, I am using the latest versions on iPhone & iPad (9.1) and iMac (10.11.1), even with a totally clean install on the iMac (without using the time machine backups to avoid transferring settings and/or bugs from the previous installs)

    And the problem is obvioulsy not universal as my Macbook Air (2015) has no problem with handoff.

    Did you ever resolve this issue? I also swapped the wifi/bluetooth module of my Mac Pro (2010 model) for an broadcom BCM94360CD. Everything worked great on Yosemite but ever since I upgraded to El Capitan it hasn't worked at all.
