Ran into this today. We strongly test against IPv6 as we have users worldwide, but Spaces managed to slip by.

Riding on this one, an important “ISP” : Apple during app review process. You can check official Apple docs on this matter:

For what it’s worth, Digitalocean’s stance on IPV6 (for instance: no support on load balancer - which is super problematic for kubernetes infra) makes it a nogo for mobile app backend.

Hey friend,

Currently we’re only utilizing IPv4 for Spaces. You could reverse proxy it over IPv6 though.

Curious though, does your ISP provide you IPv6 only? If so, do you mind if I ask what ISP and where you’re located? I’m curious to follow such trends to make sure that we’re keeping up with growing implementations.
