Despite the dongle is endorsed by Jim, my iPhone SE (running iOS 11), just couldn't see the dongle on the Bluetooth device list.
Am I missing anything? Your experiences and wisdom are much appreciated.

Connection issue has been fixed by downloading GeekOBD_Vgate (free) and running it prior to launching LeafSpy Pro.
A Bluetooth 4.x LE OBDII adapter will not show up on a Bluetooth list until AFTER an app has connected to it.
So if you are expecting to see the adapter listed before starting LeafSpy it will not happen.
Unlike the older Bluetooth where you first had to pair with it on the Bluetooth Settings page that is no longer needed. There is really no need to ever go to the iOS Settings Bluetooth screen unless, for some reason, you have turned off Bluetooth. Just run the app.
You finally saw it on the list of connected devices because you ran an app that used it. Same thing would have happened if you just ran LeafSpy directly.
Bluetooth 4.x LE is plug and play where "play" means run the app.
