 Why Can’t I See my FIDO BLE Devices on iOS/Mac OS Bluetooth Settings Page?
Answer: According to Apple support, it is not possible to see BLE devices listed on the Bluetooth Settings page. Only Bluetooth 2.1/3.0 devices are listed, such as keyboards and headsets (source). For BLE devices, please use the device’s own app or any other third party apps which use CoreBluetooth. That means user need to find an platform (browsers if use web based services) that support FIDO BLE pairing and communication. In the past, Chrome did support this, however, this feature has been removed unfortunately:
