If I can also add one comment here, on Mac OS, Corebluetooth API doesn't provide MAC address. We can infer the information from CoreBluetoothCache entry in /Library/Preferences/com.bluetooth.apple.plist, but the entry is created if device has been connected at least once if I'm right.

Reason being probably that if device uses a "private resolvable random address", address will change frequently so that device cannot be used for tracking.
