Handoff not working with Yosemite and iOS 8

I have three Macbook Pros in my household.  Two are mid 2012 models and the other a late 2012 model.  Each is supposed to support the handoff feature of Yosemite and ios8.  Everything seems to work properly between my daughter's late 2012 MBP and her iPhone 6.  But on the other two MBPs in our family the continuity feature does not work on either of them.  Receiving and sending calls works fine.  But the continuity does not work even though all three MBPs and all three iPhone 6 are on the same wifi network.
I've tried all the suggestions that I could find.  Toggling off and on the various settings on the MBPs and the iPhones.

Thank you for responding to my issue.  I spent the better part of two hours trying to get this to work.  Bluetooth is enabled on all devices. Each computer is set in Preferences/General to allow Handoff.  All computers and iPhones are on the same WiFi network.  I toggled all of the major settings off and on.  Rebooted each of my computers several times. I finally conceded defeat.  Then my daughter asked to have a try at it.  She worked on the first MBP for about thirty minutes and informed me that she had gotten continuity to work.  And indeed, on her MBP late 2012 she is able to use the continuity features in both directions between her computer and her iPhone 6.  But it only works with Mail and Safari.  I asked how she accomplished this feat.  She said she turned off "everything" on her computer and iPhone (WiFi, Bluetooth, "Allow handoff" under Preferences/General) and then rebooted both the iPhone and the computer.  She then turned everything back on.  This worked for her.  So we tried the same thing on my MBP and iPhone 6.  Now continuity works partially. Email activity is mirrored on both the MBP and the iPhone regardless of which device initiates the continuity activity.  But Safari activity on the computer is mirrored on the iPhone but not in the opposite direction.  There is no continuity function for Pages in either direction.  The telephone connectivity works fine on all of my devices– 3 MBPs, Mac Pro, iPad Air, 2nd gen iPad and 3rd gen iPad.

  • My iPhoto will not work with Yosemite, and it says that it was purchased under a different account, but that's not the case.  Any ideas why I cannot update iPhoto?

    my iPhoto will not work with Yosemite, and it says that it was purchased under a different account, but that's not the case.  Any ideas why I cannot update iPhoto?

    How did you buy iPhoto? Did it come preinstalled on your computer with Lion or later, or did it come with Snowleopard on system installer disks?
    Which version of iPhoto?
    If you have a version of iPhoto '11 and it is showing on the Purchased tab of the App Store, with your Apple ID, then delete iPhoto from the Applications folder  (don't empty the Trash) and download iPhoto again from the Purchased tab.
    If that does not work, contact The App Store Support  from the Quick Links on the AppStore main page.
    Only apple Support can fix problems with apple ID.

  • FaceTime no longer working with Yosemite and IOS 8.1

    I have used FaceTime flawlessly for some time with no issue.
    After I upgraded to Yosemite on my MacBookAir and IOS8.1 on 5S and iPad air, I've had a problem connecting.
    When I get a call, all the devices ring (as they should) but it will not connect on the first device I pick up on.  It says connecting
    but all the other devices keep ringing and finally it says I have a missed call.  The connection does not happen.  If I turn off
    all devices except one, it will work...... do we have a bug here??

  • Adobe Photoshop Elements 12 does not work with Yosemite 10.10

    My Adobe Photoshop Elements 12 does not work with Yosemite 10.10 nor does my Premier Elements 12. When I try to start them up I get the error message. After uninstalling and reinstalling a few times its still the same. Strangely enough PSE 11 seem to work with Yosemite.  I uninstalled my Premier Elements as well and it behave the same way. How do I get a new copy of Premier Elements 12 to reinstall?

    Just to further test what is happening to my iMac on Yosemite is I downloaded the trial version of Photoshop CC and when I go to launch it it gives mr the same error message as when I try to launch PES 12 or Premier Elements 12. So whatever the problem is it involves all three and so upgrading to Photoshop CC doesn't even help.  Could there be an Adobe file damaged or missing somewhere that is common to these and yet does not effect Revel and Lightroom?

  • Is their a fix for photoshop elements 11 move tool? Not working with Yosemite OS upgrade.

    Is their a fix for photoshop elements 11 move tool? Not working with Yosemite OS upgrade.

    Hi,
    We sincerely apologize for the problem customers are facing while using a trackpad with Photoshop Elements 11 & 12 on Mac OSX 10.10 (Yosemite).
    We have been actively working with Apple to resolve this problem as quickly as possible. We're hopeful this will get completely resolved in an upcoming update of Yosemite(MAC 10.10).
    In the meanwhile, you have two options to work around this problem:
    1. Option1: Use a mouse instead of the trackpad
    2. Option2: Install a plug-in which should workaround the problem
    Plug-in installation instructions:
    1. Close Photoshop Elements
    2. Download this zip file to a location you can easily find (e.g. your desktop)
    3. Unzip the file, WhiteWindowWorkaround.plugin, and move it to the Plug-In folder:
    • For Elements 12 – //Applications/Adobe Photoshop Elements 12/Support Files/Plug-Ins/
    • For Elements 11 - //Applications/Adobe Photoshop Elements 11/Support Files/Plug-Ins/
    You can verify the plug-in is installed by launching the Photoshop Elements Editor and choosing Help > System Info... Scroll to the bottom of the text in the dialog and look for the plug-in name "WhiteWindowWorkaround.plugin".
    Note: This plugin is a temporary workaround and should be used until this issue is addressed in Mac OSX 10.10 (Yosemite). Please remove this plugin once the issue is officially resolved by Apple.
    If you are using a stylus in conjunction with a trackpad, you might see issues with your trackpad. Workaround in this particular case is to use mouse instead of the trackpad.
    Hope this helps!

  • Polarioid pogo printer not working with ipad and iphone

    And I can not believe how that truly *****... I am traveling through the states and bought the pogo to print on the road... Only to find out that it does not work with ipad and does not work with iphone... Unless I jailbreak my phone which I don't really want to do...
    Apple wants us to go mobile and clouding and all those things, yet, when we do go mobile and try a mobile life style, we are encountering so much technical crap that we loose the will to live...
    I could have spend the hundred dollar for the pogo to have pics printed out in every kiosk in the country...
    WWhen is Apple going to come to its senses about little life savers like the pogo and bluetooth???????
    Is anyone aware of a work around so I can print on the go? And a solution that does not involve a programmers brain because my single braincell is not working while traveling... It needs to be easy!

    To cut through all the rage and anger and "knowing" who wanted what, the Pogo has been out for a year or so, well before Mr. Jobs' passing, and Apple did not make any mention of supporting printing on anything other than Airprint compatible printers.
    Since Airprint is a Wi-Fi/ethernet thing, Polaroid would have to make a significant redesign to the Pogo.  Considering that the first iPhones only supported Bluetooth headsets and Apple didn't provide any indications about increasing Bluetooth support, Polaroid's decision for the Pogo to be Bluetooth was obviously not with iOS devices in mind.  This is why initially Polaroid had links on the FAQ to tell Apple to add Bluetooth printing support (so that in effect, asking Apple to pay for the expenses to make the iPhone compatible with the Pogo, rather than Polaroid paying to make the Pogo compatible with iOS.)
    I come from a photograpic background.  I got the Pogo as soon as it came out.  I quite literally was on Polaroid's website every day checking to see when I could order it.  Having "instant" sticker prints is wonderful at family picnics with all the kids.  While it would be great to be able to get Pogo prints from anyone's iPhone, I stopped holding my breath when Apple announced Airprint, which came well after the Pogo was released.  So I took that as the sign that it was probably never going to happen.  (I knew that the Pogo wasn't iOS compatible when I bought it so not having compatiblity is not a deal-breaker for me.  But, yes, it would be nice.)
    I now use a Polaroid Z340 since it's a 14 megapixel camera that prints larger 3x4 Zink prints.  Polaroid makes the GL10, which is basically a Pogo using the same printer as the Z340.  But it's still Bluetooth only.   So while I sympathize with the desire to have a really compact portable printer like the Pogo, iOS compatibility just does not seem to be on the horizon.  IMHO, it would be more realistic that Polaroid create an app to do Bluetooth printing.  But considering Polaroid's financial issues, I'm not holding my breath

  • I have aperture 3.4.4, which does not work with Yosemite. Is there a way to upgrade my Aperture version, or do I have to buy Aperture again?

    I have aperture 3.4.4, which does not work with Yosemite. Is there a way to upgrade my Aperture version, or do I have to buy Aperture again?

    If you own any version of Aperture 3, you are entitled to a free update. Only it can be tricky, if your version is not associated with your AppleID, because you bought it with a serial number.
    Have you checked, if you can see an update at the App Store Updates page? Or an "Accept" button on the Purchases tab of the app Store?
    Contact the AppStore Support and request a redeem code, to be able to buy the update for free. You will need to provide a proof op purchase of Aperture.
    Use this link: http://www.apple.com/support/mac/app-store/contact/
    Apple sent redeem codes for Aperture 3.6 to several users who had bought the version on disks, if they could provide a serial number.  See for example this discussion: (The post marked as the solution)
    Re: Aperture update not possible after update to Yosemite
    It is really unfortunate you missed the window of opportunity with Mavericks MacOS X 10.9.5, when the update was easy.

    I'm using Final Cut version 10.1.4 with Yosemite 10.10.2 and whenever I open FCP it opens for about 5 seconds (not allowing me to click anywhere) before closing with the message  "Final Cut Pro quit unexpectedly. click reopen to open the application again.

    I have had this problem for close to a year. I have an Extreme base station, two Airport Express's and multiple G4 Mac's with up to date software. I have spent a huge amount of time trouble shooting, resetting, reapplying software and finally calling Applecare without any help. It would be great to get this problem solved.

  • Site list update not working with TED and Zenworks for Servers

    Product: Zenworks for Desktops 7Sp1 and Zenworks For Server/TED 7Sp1HP5
    Subject: Site list update not working with TED and Zenworks for Servers ,
    all on Linux
    Description: We have an exiting environment with 6 ZfS Servers and now we
    brought up a new Server for another location. I configured all same as on
    the other Server and the new one created all NAL-Apps at the new location.
    But in the Application Site list on the golden App is this Application
    missing. So I clicked on the Link up site list on the Distribution Screen
    in C1. On ApplicationSite list the App from the new location is missing.
    So I removed all and added the new from the new location and now i see all
    in the application site list.When I install an app on the client on the
    new location NAL is connecting alway th the same (wrong location-server
    and i get an msi error 1612 or id=53272 with path=\Wrong serverpath to
    file.
    I looked on the other tab on C1 at the golden app an I see the backlinks
    are going to all other servers without the new one. Software installation
    on other locations are ok
    Regards

    Andreas,
    I forgot to mention that you can also set the loging level on the Distributor and the Subscriber to 6. to do this at the Zenworks Server Management prompt type "setconsolelevel 6" if you want to capture this to the log file ted.log then use "setfilelevel 6"
    Next delete the Distribution from the Subscriber and then re-push the channel.
    What we are looking for here in the log is the creation of the object and the linking information about the gold object. it should look like this (not the failure part ;-))) )
    In this excerpt you will see the entry
    Golden App =
    This should be were the link is to
    You can check this both ways in the Golden App and in the Distributed Application.
    Here is a log from me that shows this info as an example of what you should be looking for.

  • ICloud Safari History not syncing across my devices with Yosemite and iOS 8

    I have a MacBook Pro with the latest update of Yosemite installed, an iPad 2 with iOS 8.1.1, an iPhone 6 with iOS 8.1.1 and other things seem to be syncing like my bookmarks, reading list, and all other iCloud data as well as iMessages and text messages. But the one thing that does not seem to be syncing is my browsing history in Safari. This is supposed to be a new feature of Yosemite and iOS 8 and it is working for a friend of mine but not me.
    How can I fix this? I've tried going into iCloud settings on all three devices and turning off Safari sync and then turning it back on but no luck.

    I spoke with Apple support again this weekend. The first support specialist told me that Safari browsing history was not a feature at this time. When I sent a screenshot of the notes of what updated in Safari 8.0.2 on December 11, 2014 from the AppStore, I got transferred to a senior support specialist. They had me try things like log out of icloud and then reset my network settings on my devices. But that unfortunately did not work. My next step which I did not have time to do, is to see if it is my iCloud account by creating a new iCloud account, logging out of iCloud and then resetting my network settings and then logging into iCloud with the new iCloud account and see if Safari history syncs.
    I'm not sure what they will do for me if it is my iCloud account because I have so much on that account and have email addresses that I don't want to lose. And if it isn't the iCloud account they said it is probably my devices but I am not sure what they will have me do to try to fix it if it is. Set them up as new? I don't really want to do that, it takes forever to get everything back on the device.

  • Unable to use iMessage on Mac with non-IOS contact with Yosemite and IOS 8.1

    I have an iPhone, an iPad running IOS 8.1, and a Mac running Yosemite.  I have set up all 3 to use iMessage, entering the codes as requested.  The 2 IOS devices work fine and the Mac works fine on messages to contacts with iPhones but non-IOS contacts remain red and are not accepted and if I try to send a group message with a non-IOS contact I get  "XXX cannot be added to the group chat - XXX is not registered with iMessage".  I have tried deleting and replacing the contact and it still will not accept her.  I understood that this would be fixed after updating to Yosemite and IOS 8.1 but the upgrades have not resolved the problem for me. 
    In my Mac iMessage preferences:
    1-I am signed in with my Apple ID and the account is enabled. 
    2-In the "You can be reached for messages at" field, I have my iPhone number, preceded by a +1 and the area code and 3 email addresses (icloud, me, and gmail)
    3-in the "Start new conversations from" field, I have my cell phone number  - also with a +1 and area code.
    4-I have checked all of my Apple ID and iCloud details and they are all correct. 
    All other Handoff features appear to be working correctly.  Any help or suggestions would be appreciated.  Thanks very much -

    It will suggest and look like it will auto-complete until you type further.
    As 204 is unlikely to be the full number the issue does not arise.
    For instance if I start typing my name every option that I have listed with my name over three Contacts card (for my three computers) and some Accounts not linked to Address Cards are listed
    Of course this lists also shows cross connections between the accounts making the list longer.
