I updated my mac to High Sierra before 2 weeks ago. Whenever I turn on my mac it says “Bluetooth Not Available”. I asked my friend why my mac keeps on saying “Bluetooth Not Available”. She told some solutions to fix this issue. Here I am going to share those solutions with you.
Solution 1: Restart Mac
- Shut down your Mac.
- Unplug everything that have plugged into Mac (like USB cables, Headsets, etc).
- Wait for 6 minutes.
- Then turn on your Mac.
Solution 2: Reset Bluetooth Module
- Press and hold Shift+Option keys and click Bluetooth icon.
- Select “Debug”.
- Click “Reset the Bluetooth module”.
- Then restart your Mac via Apple menu->Restart.
- Then pair Bluetooth Accessory and check.
Solution 3: Delete com.apple.bluetooth.plist
- Go to Finder->Go->Go to Folder.
- Type ~/Library/Preferences in the pop-up box and then click “Go”.
- Scroll down to find com.apple.bluetooth.plist (the program you have problems with)
