I am in Europe. None of Apple och Microsoft mobile devices will do IPv6 on 
the mobile side. I don't know if they do special versions for the US 
market, but for general 3GPP networks, it doesn't work.

They try to detect if there is Internet connectivity and check only IPv4, 
they use IPv4 literals and other things. I am not an app developer, I do 
networking, and when I connect IPv6 only to Android or Windows, a lot of 
things stop working. I haven't tried iPhone but I would believe the 
situation is similar there.
