WiFi=yes, Bluetooth=no.

Apple doesn't make the Bluetooth interface open to apps.

Android phones/tablets can control scopes via Bluetooth and Sky Safari Pro.

Orion makes a Wi-Fi that works with an IPOD. I don't see any reason it wouldn't work with an IPAD. It is called a Starseek Wi-Fi telescope control module.
