Seems to me there is a big problem with the new Apple OS upgrades killing Bluetooth! In my case on my MacBook.


I've been struggling with this for 2 days, since I upgraded to 10.8.5 which I needed to go to get the latest iTunes, which I needed to upgrade my iPhone and iPad to IOS7 . . . yes, right down the garden path I walked


MacBook Pro 17", early 2009.


After the 10.8.5 upgrade Bluetooth is Not Available, same as seanluck13.

-System Preferences: no sign of Bluetooth

-System Search: no sign of Bluetooth

-System Profile Information: Bluetooth: No Information Found

-So Bluetooth is absent, removed, not present -- AGHHHHH!!!!!


Apple BT keyboard and trackpad can't be used. MacBook trackpad is worn out and I get wrist strain trying to activate it!


I read on a forum that a fix was to reinstall the system over the internet after a CMD-OPT-R restart. Did that -- 5 HOURS LATER -- NO CHANGE, BLUETOOTH STILL ABSENT !@(%&( )TY(@Q#*!!


Please someone help me before I throw this Mac down the garbage shoot. At the moment that's only a fantasy.

MacBookPro 17", Mac OS X (10.6)
