I keep reading that Apple already randomises MAC addresses for privacy purposes, but then how do its devices stay logged in to 'captive' WiFi, or more problematically, paired with Bluetooth devices?

Are the addesses only randomised for broadcast / new pairs?

I only know about the WiFi, once you start the attempt to connect to the SSID it uses your real mac. So the probing uses random MAC address

Registration is open for Startup School 2019. Classes start July 22nd.
