I am trying to do some testing with t-mobile on my Apple iphone (I currently have an unlocked iphone 6). However, I do not seem to be getting an ipv6 address on my cellular interface. I can see some of my Android devices getting v6 and v4 addresses. I am I missing something here? I was under the impression that t-mobile LTE APN was ipv6 capable.
Does t-mobile not support ipv6 on iOS devices? If yes, can someone shed any light on why? Also, is there any plan to support iOS devices in the future?
Hey vijaygos! That's definitely a great question! We have deployed IPv6 support across our entire network, although whether that is used or IPv4 is determined by the device/software itself as well as the apps you're using.
Still does not answer my question. I understand that the usage of IPv6 is app and device dependent. I explicitly mentioned that I am not getting an IPv6 address on my cellular interface. Which basically rules out any apps. So, this seems to be something specific to device.
Back to my original question, what is the current scenario with iPhones?
We do not have these specific details in regards to the iPhone 6 and iPv6. Apple does have an info page on iPv6, as well as a link to test your browser's capabilities.
The correct answer is still, unfortunately, "No". Their support staff still has trouble knowing what I'm talking about when asked why I can't access IPv6 from my iPhone.
Interestingly enough, I checked my iPhone today, and T-Mobile now *does* support IPv6. It is in the 2607:fb90::/32 address range. The location is Pinellas County Florida.
On my phone it started working last week when the carrier settings updated to 24.2.
