You are unable to update/change APN settings on an iPhone as these are locked out by the network. These are done by Carrier updates.

Re: EE APN Settings: Where to find them

This is a full and very interesting posting. 

 

However,  it does not mention the IPv4 / IPv6 question. Some websites that claim to be IPv6 compliant don't work on EE 4g unless you set the phone to run IPv4 only (in the APN settings).   Examples of affceted websites are www.tolkiensociety.org and www.qustodio.com and the qustodio app.  There are many more.

 

I am no expert, but it seems to me that it would be useful if EE 4g would 'automatically drop down' from IPv6 to IPv4 if a website fails to work on IPv6.

 

If you search this community for 'qustodio' or 'tolkiensociety' you can find exampels of these discussions.
