MacBook Pro retina display - BlueTooth interferring with my WiFi conncetivity

MacBook Pro retina display about 3 years old - when I turn on BlueTooth, it interfers with my WiFi conncetivity causing the browser to freeze while navigating pages on the web

seems to be a proximity issue - when I am very close (same room) as the Wi-Fi
router, there is no issue. When I go into another room, the Bluetooth causes an
issue. I was told that some of the MacBook Pro's had the Bluetooth and Wi-Fi
circuitry on the same board - which they later changed. Has anyone else noticed
the 'proximity' phenomena?

  • Can i buy a macbook pro retina display in US with portuguese keyboard?

    Can Apple or someone else tell me if is possible to buy in Apple Retail Store in U.S. a Macbook Pro retina Display  with portuguese keyboard?

    It's difficult to get one at a shop or Apple Online Store because build-to-order Macs aren't available at them unless they are very popular.
    The only option you have is to call Apple (1-800-MY-APPLE) and see if you can order a MacBook Pro with a Portuguese keyboard. In case you can, this will take days because it has to be ordered and delivered to the USAFD

  • How do I downgrade my MacBook Pro Retina Display from Mountain Lion to Lion?

    I have a brand new MacBook Pro Retina Display that came with OS X 10.8.1.
    I´m an audio engineer so I work with Pro Tools, tons of plug-ins etc... Some of my software doesn't work with Mountain Lion just yet. Some of them haven't upgraded, and some of them I need to purchase a latest version, which is not cheap at all in the audio world. So I'd like to hang on to Lion for a while until I decide to upgrade everything to Mountain Lion.
    I've seen other posts about this ->
    This one in particular managed to make the downgrade. However, he used to have OS X 10.7.4 in his retina display when he bought it. Which is something that doesn't happen in my case.
    If you read the other post you can see that several methods have been tried.
    Is it really safe to completely erase my hard drive and to a clean install of Lion? Will it work perfectly fine on my Retina Display?
    I went to one Apple Store, and the guy asked around and told me they haven't done it before, so since they didn't know whether it was going to work they couldn't do it. He told me to do it myself and if something happened to my laptop, "just bring it in and we'll reinstall the stock OS X again."
    Since the laptop is brand new I don't mind erasing everything, all my stuff is already backed up.
    So help me please?

    The short of it is if it came with 10.8.1 you can't install an OS less than that.

  • Will an Infra-Red Adapter work with a macbook pro retina display so I can use the apple TV remote for presentations?

    I have always used the apple TV remote for my presentations.  I bought a retina display last year for the betterment of my presentations and now I have to stand near my computer and hit a button to change my slides where as before I used my remote.  Will a infra-red adapter work with the apple TV remote in the macbook pro retina display?  Love my computer, but very disappointed not to have a remote for presentations that does not need the internet.  Does anyone have any ideas?

    Yes, I used that and it works great if you have wireless connection.  Im looking for  a remote that worked like the apple TV remote.  My questions is, "Is there a USB infra-red remote that works with mac.  I have found this one: Keyspan EZ1 easy presenter.  It claims with works with PC and Mac and the reviews are good.  Does anyone know anything about it or if it works with retina display macs?

  • I am going to replace my 3 year old MacBook Pro with a new MacBook Pro Retina display machine.  I have been told by Apple that I can use the Migration Assistant ON MY WIRELESS NETWORK (no cables) to transfer data... I've read this can take AGES.. True?

    I am planning to replace my 3+ year old MacBook Pro with a new MacBook Pro, Retina display... I have been told by "chat" on the Apple site that I can transfer my data wirelessly... on my network.. Is is a good option?  I don't want to invest in cables if I can help it... since the old machine has firewire and the new one has thunderbolt!  Will the wireless transfer take forever... as in 30-50 hours???  I've been hearing these horror stories...

  • Macbook pro retina display 15 inch ram upgrade with apple care

    I have a early 2013 Macbook Pro Retina Display 15 inch.
    Doing some research, i do realized that RAMs are not upgradeable due to being embedded to motherboard.
    I was hoping if there any chance to upgrade my RAM from 8 gb to 16 gb through Apple Care that i currently have.
    I would love to hear back any feed backs on any possible way to upgrade your RAMS in MPR 15 inch.
    thank you much!!!

    It's impossible for anyone - Apple included - to upgrade the RAM on a Retina MacBook Pro. With those machines, you have to live with what you originally purchased.

  • MacBook Pro Retina display with scratch/crack in the glass

    Can it be real, that on my new MacBook Pro Retina display I have a little scratch/crack in the glass out of the box?
    You can only see it if you have light (e.g withe) background on the display.
    I hope Apple Care will replace it.
    Does anybody else have the same issue?

    When I bought my iMac and took it home and set it up, I was cleaning the screen and noticed what looked like smears on the inside of the glass. I took a picture of it with my iphone and went back to the apple store. Of course the genuis could not see it in the brightly lit store, so I showed her the picture. I also took a little flash light with me and she was then able to see the marks. She thought they looked like fingerprints under the glass. They swapped out the iMac right there for a new one.

  • Facetime and iMessage on Macbook Pro Retina display slow after Yosemite 10.10.3 Update

    I recently updated my Macbook Pro Retina display to Yosemite 10.10.3 update. I see that the Facetime and iMessage has become relatively very slow. Like for example when someone calls on my phone it takes like more than 15 seconds + to show up on my macbook. Earlier it used to be like instant!
    I started seeing this problem on Yosemite 10.10.3 update only. Also the same is the story with iMessage. When I get an SMS or an iMessage from my friends it takes like a good 30 seconds + to show up on my macbook pro.
    Just for your information, this is the version of macbook i am using
    MacBook Pro (Retina, 13-inch, Late 2013)
    2.4 GHz Intel Core i5
    8 GB 1600 MHz DDR3
    251GB Flash storage
    As Suggested by someone I also tried RESETTING my computer's PRAM. That didn't seem to help either. Can anyone help. If it is a genuine bug in Apple Yosemite, I'd like to file a bug in the community.

  • Flash movie in Safari in Macbook Pro Retina Display zooming issue

    On Macbook Pro Retina Display in Safari browser, zooming any flash application in browser does not work properly.
    I have made a YouTube video showing the problem in action:
    When I zoom in and out using two fingers pinch zooming does not go as expected - it is zooming into bits outside of the zoom area while the zooming is in the process.
    Please fix the issue.
    I have also created an Adobe BugBase bug report here:

    Hi Steffen....!!
    The phenomenon which you just described is absolutely not common in the late 2013 retina macbook. Even I have the same model but I have never noticed such sounds neither during normal operations nor after tilting it.
    I am afraid, but it seems to be a hardware issue. Might be because the fan assembly has become loose due to which its touching the other parts.
    There is also a possibility  that some dirt or small piece of something might have gone inside the macbook through the air vents which may be interfering with the fan mechanism. I think so you can try to open the back cover of the macbook and see if something is interfering with the fans if your macbook is out of warranty. If its covered with Apple care, I suggest take it to Apple store and let them diagnose the issue.
    Hope this helps......

  • (AIRDROP) Macbook Pro Retina Display Can't see Macbook Pro mid 2012

    I was trying to send and receive files from my macbook pro 13' mid 2012 (MBP) to and from macbook pro retina display 13' (MBPR) using airdrop.
    both on Yosemite.
    The problem is, I can't see my MBP from MBPR in airdrop. But the other way around works fine, I can see and send files from MBP to MBPR.
    I've changed the 'allow me to be discovered by : Everyone' on both mac. Bluetooth and wifi are on. I even tried to search onlder mac from MBPR but no result.
    Does anyone have the same problem? Is there any solution for this?

    I am aware there are symbols. My technical issue is the MagSafe2 adapter. What people typically do is connect their laptops to the wall when they're battery dies off. No biggie. I can attach it to the outlet. Well, when I connect the adapter to the outlet, nothing happens. Nothing happens at home, at Starbucks, at McDonalds, at other people's home.
    When I brought this up with technical support in August when I bought it, technical support person said I might have issues with my electrical wiring at home. I've never had issues with electrical wiring at home because my other Apple products work fine when connected to the outlet. My July 2011 MacBook Pro charged without a hitch.
    And I was able to charge my Retina MBP only at night or very early in the morning.
    But this weekend, I couldn't charge it at all. I'm starting to think it might be the MagSafe2 adapter problem.
    I feel rather ridiculous buying the highest-end of the 15 inch Retina MBP. It cost me over $3000. Right now I'm working with my 5 year old Hewlett Packard laptop. At least my HP works, which can't be said about this top-of-the line Apple product.
    Probably explains why Apple stocks are falling. At $3000 I shouldn't be having these type of problems.

  • My iPhone 5 won't connect to my macbook pro retina over bluetooth?

    My iPhone 5 won't connect to my macbook pro retina over bluetooth?

    Ah, sure it actually won't.  I have the same problem, and I contacted Apple Support.  They told me that there is an incompatability between the iphone 5 and MacBook Pro Retina such that Bluetooth pairing is not possible.
    The Support Agent actually had the audacity to tell me this was part of the design of the OS on the MacBook Pro, like Windows people saying, "That's not a bug.  It's a feature!!"
    Personally, I think this is insane.  While I was trying to tether the iphone to the MacBook Pro retina for an internet connection, there are other reasons related to file transfers for which one would want to pair the iphone 5 with the MacBook Pro retina.
    I am hoping this "feature" is fixed in iOS 7, and/or in some dot release of Mac OS 10.8.
    By the way, the personal hotspot feature on my Verizon iphone 5 works great either via a wifi or USB connection.  There are occaisions, however, when one would 1) not have a USB cable, and/or 2) have another wifi relationship between the phone and a network that one would not want to have to "forget" in order for it not to connect to that wifi network.  The Macbook will not find the iphone as a wifi hotspot if the iphone is connected to wifi in the first place.  At least mine won't.
    WWSJS???  What Would Steve Jobs Say???!!!
