Bluetooth is one of the most common methods of transferring files between a mobile device and the computer, but often the Bluetooth version is not compatible, causing connection and file transfer problems. While most smartphones now support Bluetooth 4.0 or higher, you can’t really transfer files if your Windows 10 PC doesn’t support at least Bluetooth 4.0.
For those who don’t know, Bluetooth 4.0 is an optimized version of Bluetooth technology that extends functionality while maintaining compatibility with other devices. It is also called the low power version of Bluetooth because it is also supported by small battery powered devices.
Not everyone knows the Bluetooth profile version of their device, which is very important. However, we can also manually check the Bluetooth version, there are also tools that will help you check the Bluetooth version on your Windows 10 PC.
