You do not require a server that supports IPv6 to resolve the issue.

Apple are only enforcing that the client app works on a device that is 
operating on a IPv6 only network, not that the app only connects to IPv6 
servers.  Your app can still connect to IPv4 networks, as the IPv6 only 
network provider will have DNS64/NAT64 translation in place for 
connecting to IPv4 networks.

The problem will usually be because you are using hard-coded IPv4 IP 
addresses rather than relying on DNS to resolve any hostnames, or that 
you are using some networking component that doesn't support IPv6 in 
your app.  What sort of network calls are you making from your app, are 
they only HTTP/HTTPS?

Charles
