My Mid-2012 Mac Pro doesn't have Bluetooth 4.0. I haven't been able to use Continuity on it, ever.
That doesn't bother me too much.
But, I was looking to upgrade to the Magic Trackpad 2 today, and saw that it requires Bluetooth 4.0, and so now I'm looking to upgrade this relatively recent Mac Pro with some newer hardware.
Some things I've discovered and questions I have to ask:
- How to get Continuity working on an older unsupported Mac - It says Continuity, but since it's basically adding BT 4.0, it should be the same thing. And if I can get Continuity, too, cool.
- dokterdok/Continuity-Activation-Tool - Great, but I have to disable SIP to run the tool, and I may not get the right kind of Bluetooth dongle.
- Looks like the best bet would be to find BCM94360CD. Yes? The card? Just replace it and I don't need to do anything else?
- Those cards seem tough to come by, and they might require a mini Pci-e adapter? That feels like too much effort.
- Will just a Bluetooth dongle let this trackpad work if I don't care at all about Continuity?
The last question may very well be the one I care most about.
