Thank you for your post and welcome to the Bose Community.
I'm sorry to hear that you're having some trouble connecting your QC35 II's to your MacBook laptop.
The Bose Connect app is not available on macOS. To connect, please use your traditional Bluetooth settings to initiate the connection.
If you have any problems with this, let me know and I'll be happy to help.
