Will My Mac Support Handoff In OS X Yosemite?

Question:

How do I know if my Mac will support Handoff in OS X Yosemite?
- Asked by Jake A. July 23rd, 2014

Answer:

In order for your Mac to use Handoff in OS X Yosemite, your Mac needs to have at least Bluetooth 4.0. To find out if yours does, launch the Terminal app on your Mac (it's inside Applications > Utilities) and then paste in the following command:

system_profiler SPBluetoothDataType | grep LMP

Hit enter and look for something called "LMP Version" in the results. You want to see a version of 0x6 or higher. If you do, then your Mac has Bluetooth 4.0 and will support Handoff in Yosemite.
