If you are having Bluetooth connectivity issue on your Mac, which is causing Bluetooth accessories such as Mouse and Keyboard to repeatedly disconnect and reconnect to your computer, then we have a solution for you. You can solve many of the Bluetooth Connectivity issues on your Mac by resetting the Mac Bluetooth Module.
Since past few weeks my Apple Mouse and Keyboard started acting up. Both these devices that connect to my MacBook via Bluetooth would automatically disconnect and then connect back to my computer. All this was very annoying to the point I considered buying a new pair.
Before ordering new accessories I decided to see if there is something wrong with my 2018 MacBook Pro’s Bluetooth since surely two separate accessories cannot start malfunctioning at the same time. Turns out I was right, the problem wasn’t with my Mouse and Keyboard but with the Bluetooth module.
