Now, the iOS 6.1 feature guide does not mention anything about IPv6 support. (iOS new features). All fancy, eye candy stuff alright, but nothing about IPv6… nada…nowhere…
I thought I’d test it out to see if iOS 6.1 can work with IPv6. I setup my home router (already running IPv6 with my ISP on dual-stack) to hand out IPv6 addresses using EU-64 format. Connect the phone to wifi and navigate to network settings::: Apparently, the network settings only show IPv4 details:
All other devices on my network now has got an IPv6 address leased by the router. So I thought I’d test my phone can reach IPv6 sites http://test-ipv6.com/
… and viola … So it seems that iOS 6.1 fully support IPv6 connectivity. I get a 10/10 on the IPv6 test. Dont know why Apple doesn’t show IPv6 address details on the network settings, it also wouldnt let you change anything related to IPv6 at all..
and then … if you want to check address details, there is a small App called “ip6Config” from AppStore. that’s about it.
