It has not been long since Apple released OS X Yosemite for all supported Mac machines and it looks like some of them have developed problems apparently related to Bluetooth after they were updated to the new software. Some users have contributed countless posts to a thread on Apple’s official support forums complaining about Bluetooth problems that surfaced after they updated their machines to OS X Yosemite.
Macs use Bluetooth for connecting to wireless input peripherals, among other things, and some users are reporting problems even when trying to connect to Apple’s own wireless input devices such as the Magic Trackpad, wireless keyboard and Magic Mouse.
One user writes that he has noticed a persistent 0.5 second of latency, lag when using his Magic Mouse and a Bluetooth Keyboard on battery power, which rectifies itself when his MacBook Pro is plugged in. But not everyone is experiencing the same thing.
Others write that the Bluetooth problems persist on their Macs regardless of whether they are plugged in or not. Some people tried to fix this problem by resetting the PRAM on their machine, but the fix was only temporary and the problems cropped up again.
So far Apple hasn’t said if it is looking into the matter or working on an update so we await an official response from the company’s end. For now there appears to be no permanent fix.
