We are absolutely, definitively, completely and utterly out of IPv4 addresses, warns RIPE

>IPv6 to IPv4 adapters!

Given how many client systems have included an IPv6 stack for circa two decades, the problem is slightly different, namely getting ISP's to both support IPv6 and supply routers with IPv6 enabled.

In fact we are probably at a point where an ISP could supply a IPv6 WAN only router and many consumers would not experience any issues. This would largely remove the need for domestic IPv4 address allocations (could let people have one at extra cost if they discover they have devices that only support IPv4 for Internet access).
