I agree. Apple does it really well, no doubt about it. This is because
they control both the software and hardware.

Google/Android ├žan not do it well enough, since the Android OS version
compatibility with the hardware is somewhat dictated by the hardware
manufacturer. This isn't always helpful. :-(

        For ex, there are numerous android apps that are not supported
        on many android devices. :=(

Anyway, this is why I think that dual-stack home networks (and UEs) will
be with us for a long time.

Cheers,
Rajiv

Like you, I would like to be optimistic about many v4-only apps and
v4-only devices becoming dual-stack sooner than later.

But knowing that a significant (50%+) of android devices may not support
IPv6 (just like my brand new Samsung Galaxy 7'' tablet (just bought over
the weekend) being v4-only) and may not be upgraded by their users to
the
right software, and that Skype etc. apps are out there, my optimism
fades
away.

The upgrade problem isn't that hard to solve. As soon as users want to use
something that doesn't work without the upgrade, the upgrades get
installed.

Apple does a great job of this...

Every time they release an iOS upgrade I really don't want, they manage to
also release an update to software that I do care about. That software
update
inherently requires me to accept the iOS upgrade.
