How Do I Check Bluetooth Signal Strength?


Is there a way to check the strength of a Bluetooth signal?

You can check Bluetooth signal strength via the Bluetooth preference pane in System Preferences. Once connected to a Bluetooth device, simply put your mouse over it and hold the Option key. A negative number will appear with a graphical representation of the signal strength. The closer the number is to 0, the better the signal strength.
