Be sure to review your Bluetooth device’s documentation to make sure you’ve set up the device to pair.
Turn Bluetooth on or off. Click the Control Center icon in the menu bar, click the Bluetooth icon , then click the control to turn Bluetooth on or off. If you have the Bluetooth icon in your menu bar, you can click that and then turn the control on or off. Your MacBook Pro comes with Bluetooth turned on.
Tip: If you don’t see the Bluetooth icon in the menu bar, you can add it. In System Settings, click Control Center in the sidebar, then choose Show in Menu Bar for Bluetooth.
Connect a Bluetooth device. Turn on the device so that it’s discoverable, then open System Settings and click Bluetooth. Select the device in the list, then click Connect. The device remains connected until you remove it. Control-click a device name to remove it.
