Handsets - Cameron would be in a better place than I to discuss this, but certainly anything used to connect to his network (T-Mobile) does, and enables access with IPv4 turned off. That includes at least iPhone (the handset I use to access his network), and Android. https://thirdinternet.com/ipv6-on-mobile-devices/

As to other systems, Apple and Linux platforms, and more recently Windows, supports IPv6, and has for quite a while. Issues there tend to be in specific applications (due to the socket interface).
