http://www.internetsociety.org/deploy360/blog/2015/06/apple-will-require-ipv6-support-for-all-ios-9-apps/

If I were to guess from that article, it sounds like OSX will come with a 
mode where it can create an IPv6 only wifi, and then do DNS64+NAT64 
towards an IPv4 only connection to the outside.

If that is indeed the case, this is great, a lot more people will easily 
be able to test easily if their applications work well in a DNS64+NAT64 
environment.
