T-Mobile was reportedly banning customers on their network from utilizing iOS 15’s iCloud Private Relay function a few days ago. Given that there have been stories of providers in Europe doing the same, it didn’t seem like such a far-fetched concept, however, T-Mobile subsequently said that it was due to an iOS 15.2 fault.
Things seem to be getting more difficult now, as Apple has subsequently sent a statement denying T-assertions. Mobile’s According to the firm, none of their carrier partners have disabled the functionality, and no modifications in iOS 15.2 have been made that would prohibit the feature from operating.
“No modifications were made to iCloud Private Relay in iOS 15.2 that would have toggled the functionality off,” Apple says. Users should check their Settings to verify whether Private Relay is enabled on their device or for a particular network.”
T-Mobile has also issued an amended statement, implying that the problem may be with the Limit IP Address function. “We wanted to update what we had previously published. When clients upgrade to iOS 15.2, Apple does not adjust its settings. Customers who previously turned off iCloud Private Relay or Limit IP Address Tracking in their Cellular Data Options Settings may see an error message. More information about this feature is available on Apple’s support website.”
