Bluetooth connect problem

Trying to connect my mini I pad to Bluetooth using RPI 3 in OSMC. No luck.
I pad is identified but will not connect. Do I need a Bluetooth dongle? Or am I missing something else? JBC.

What is the intention of connecting the iPad Mini?

I think iPads only pair for A2DP streaming or to keyboards. A2DP streaming will require the experimental audio software found in the forums.

Using it play I tunes music I have stored on the pad in my vehicle. Thought same would apply here thru my Bose v35 hooked into my tv

You need to install the A2DP software then.
