Connect a Bluetooth Device

You can make wireless connections to devices such as mice, keyboards, headsets, and cell phones by using the Bluetooth networking technology. Bluetooth works by creating a temporary wireless network between your Mac and the device. Networking requires special equipment, but with Bluetooth devices, the networking is built in, so no extra equipment is needed.

For Bluetooth connections to work, your Mac must support Bluetooth (all newer Macs do) and your device must be Bluetooth enabled. Also, your Mac and the Bluetooth device must remain within about 30 feet of each other.
