add bluetooth 4.0 to older imac

jeff, Amazon
23 June 2015
  • Summary: I purchased this for my Mid 2011 27" imac so that I could have bluetooth 4.0. I was able to disable the onboard bluetooth and get this to work as the default bluetooth device. For the most part is works fine, although I have had a few times when my iphone doesn't get recognized right away.

It works with an iMac Mid 2011 with Yosemite

Magiamusical, Amazon
28 May 2015
  • Summary: To make it work with a iMac (21.5, Mid 2011) with Yosemite turn off the on board Bluetooth in the system preference and plug in the IOGEAR adapter to a usb port and that's it. It worked for me to connect a guitar pedal (iRig Blueboard) to my Mac.

It does not officially support Mac, period!

KR, Amazon
11 May 2015
  • Summary: Some of this product literature says it supports MacOs (manual) some (support site) says it doesn't. My mid 2010 iMac with yosemite saw the adapter and could not activate it somehow. I downloaded kexts, utilities, messed with it for a while but no go. ....I gave it to a friend.
