Which smartphone models can be used with the Thuraya SatSleeve+ and Hotspot?

The following smartphone models have been tested:

iOS devices (iOS 8, 9, 10 & 11)
• iPhone 4s
• iPhone 5
• iPhone 5c
• iPhone 5s
• iPhone 6
• iPhone 6 plus
• iPhone 6s
• iPhone 6s plus

• iPhone SE
• iPhone 7
• iPhone 7 plus

Note: Even though officially from Apple, the SatSleeve+ / Hotspot app is only compatible with the iOS versions listed above, some users have mentioned that a workaround might work for older versions of iOS:

  • If you’ve previously installed the app on your phone, you'll find it in your device's App Store under the Purchased tab.
  • If you’ve never previously installed, or you're using a new Apple account, just go to the App Store in iTunes on or computer and download SatSleeve+ / Hotspot. It doesn't matter what version that is; you just need to have the SatSleeve+ / Hotspot app as a "Purchased" app on your Apple account.

Now you can go back to the Purchased tab on your device, and you should find SatSleeve+ / Hotspot there. Hit that Install button and you should be offered the option to download a previous version.
