Optus today announced the Optus Thuraya SatSleeve, which transforms a smartphone into a satellite phone, is now available for iPhone 6.
The Optus Thuraya SatSleeve enables iPhone and Samsung Galaxy users to quickly turn their handsets into a satellite phone with one simple click.

- SatSleeves include an SOS button that allows users to make a call to a pre-programmed number of their choice, even if the iPhone is not connected to the SatSleeve; and
- The SatSleeve enables users to access the contacts in their handset, making the SatSleeve user experience even more simple.
SatSleeve technology is now available for a range of smartphones including iPhone 6, 5s, 5, 4s and 4, as well as Samsung Galaxy S5, S4 and S3 handsets.
