Once you’re in the Bluetooth preferences, you will see a checkbox that says “Turn Bluetooth On.” If it’s already checked, it means that Bluetooth is enabled on your Mac.

If the checkbox is not checked, click on it to turn on Bluetooth. You will notice that the text “Bluetooth: On” appears right below the checkbox.
