For Mac OS 10.9 and iOS 7, the CoreBluetooth APIs should be virtually identical.
However, Xamarin.Mac 1.8.0 is missing the CBPeripheralManager and CBPeripheralManagerDelegate classes (and perhaps other, I did not check). These classes ARE available (and usable) from Objective-C.
This may be an "automated binding" failure, since IOBluetooth.h is not usable from C++ code. See http://openradar.io/15312520. Note that the openradar bug is not completely correct; the failure occurs if IOBluetooth.h is used from any Objective-C++ code, not just in C++11 mode.
Just to add more detail here, I've got a nice bit of CoreBluetooth code (written in pure Objective-C) that compiles cleanly on OS 10.9 and iOS 7, and exposes each device as a Bluetooth Central and peripheral.
I have checked this issue and observed that classes CBPeripheralManager and CBPeripheralManagerDelegate classes are missing from namespace MonoMac.CoreBluetooth.
