Hackintosh Supported, Compatible Bluetooth Adapters: Updated

Finding a compatible bluetooth adapter for your hackintosh can be rather complicated. This guide should help you select one. All these adapters support bluetooth 4.0 and should work in OSX Mountain Lion, Mavericks, Yosemite, El Capitan, Sierra or above.

USB Adapters

USB bluetooth adapters are probably the easiest to get working. The adapters here should be plug and play, a compatible bluetooth device is required to wake from sleep.
