IPv6.... the future or the past...?

RIPE (The europen internet registry) says:
With approximately 85% of all available IPv4 Internet addresses already in use by May 2008, experts predict that the remaining stock of unallocated IPv4 addresses will be consumed by around 2011. This may have an impact on new Internet users and users of Internet devices that are not IPv6 enabled. In contrast, the pool of available IPv6 numbers will exceed 340 billion billion billion.

ITU invites to a workshop on IPv6:
The main purpose of this workshop is to raise awareness of the importance and opportunities of the deployment of IPv6...

Apple has support for IPv6 in MacOS X since a long time.

BUT: iPhone has no IPv6 anymore.

Am I missing something?
