Through satellite connectivity, Thuraya SatSleeve supports the diverse communications needs of iPhone users – from corporate and NGO users to frequent travelers and adventurous explorers, the manufacturer said.

Ensuring connectivity through phone calls and SMS via satellite mode, Thuraya SatSleeve brings satellite communications to the iPhone. Simply dock the iPhone into the SatSleeve to access satellite connectivity. Available in 12 languages, the SatSleeve App allows users to easily integrate iPhone address books for satellite calls and text messages.

Thuraya SatSleeve comes equipped with an emergency call button - phone calls can be made to one predefined number even without your iPhone docked. An additional feature is that SatSleeve acts as a backup battery for the iPhone, allowing for longer periods of operation.

Thuraya’s satellite network covers more than 140 countries, or two-thirds of the globe. With the high penetration alerting capability (HPA), Thuraya SatSleeve enables calls to be received even with the satellite antenna stowed, maintaining connection at all times.

The SatSleeve App is available as a free download from the Apple App Store.
