    TC has an option to only allow N to connect using the 5GHz.

    I tried connecting to my TC with only N and it wont find the network.

    I seriously doubt the router is not also supporting 802.11b and 802.11g.

    Of course it's possible that newer iPhones are getting a better radio chip that includes 802.11n. N is where all other Apple products are going (if not already there!)

    The current and previous Airport Extremes also have this function.

    2.4 GHz wireless n only and 5.0 GHz wireless n only
