Did the list of iOS 6 features show that the next iPhone has LTE?

    Think I might be stabbing in the dark here but I saw on the picture which lists new iOS 6 features this. IPv6 Support for wifi and LTE. I don't know what IPv6 support is but does this show anything or am I speaking crap? :')

    I thought the iPad 3 supported "LTE" already? That is, it's already an option on shipping hardware.

    With that said, the iPhone "5" has to support LTE, it's pretty obvious or else it will be a HUGE disappointment for everyone.

    Why would they discuss or show a phone feature when talking about iOS?

    IPv6 is the next-gen internet protocol.


    iOS already does it for Wi-Fi, so I suppose them having added support for it on LTE is new.

    Still, at this point if the iPad has LTE, it would be hard to believe that they would release the new iPhone without it. It's becoming the standard of cellular providers.

    I'm expecting LTE, as Apple now allows FaceTime over cellular.

    While the next iPhone will likely be LTE it will not be for this reason. The 3GS, 4 and 4S will still be 3G but support FaceTime and it does say over Cellular and not over LTE. Also even the next iPhone would have to support over 3G since LTE is not available everywhere.

    Yup, and for some reason we skipped right over IPv5, since most of us are still on IPv4. I can't imagine anyone is going to remember IP addresses in v6. Unless you're the rainman.

    But American 3G is notoriously slow, and when Apple's flagship device moves to LTE, the rest of iOS follows.

    I have no idea what 480p, 720p or 1080p are, but Apple mentioned something about "iOS6", and all these numbers are divisible by 6. Does that mean the phone will have LTE in it?

    FaceTime in it current form barely works over Verizon's 3G network. I'm hoping there are modifications to allow lower quality or better compression or something. Over LTE it's fine.

    Btw I know this because I keep my iPhone tethered to a Verizon LTE tablet.

    Nope. iOS 6 supports IPv6 over LTE != iPhone 5 has LTE. The 5 probably will have LTE but the two statements are entirely different things.

    We didn't skip over IPv5 at all. It's just that IPv5 was an experiment that didn't really go anywhere.

    And I can remember IP addresses in v6. Just not SLAAC ones.

    Lots of things and ideas are R&D or experimental but unless it is actually used then it would be considered "skipped".;)

    Well, the point is, it had an IP protocol number assigned. Namely, 5. So the next one is 6. These sorts of numbers are never withdrawn.

    Alas, my first tests on my iPad do not indicate that it has an IPv6 address when connected via LTE.
