[How-to] Print from Apple iPad, iPhone and iPod Touch – Using the Airprint Feature

By on February 11, 2013 in iOS Guide with 1 Comment

AirPrintPrinting isn’t a hard task when you have the printer well connected with the drivers too installed, and you just need to hit Print when things are ready, but Apple has got things in a better way with the AirPrint feature that would do the job of printing easier as the newer printers from many brands with the AirPrint feature in them and they wirelessly sync with each other, and from any iOS device like the iPad, iPhone and iPod Touch one can print directly without having to connect it with the wires.

According to Apple, AirPrint is an Apple technology that lets applications create full-quality printed output using Apple’s driverless printing architecture. All iOS built-in apps that support printing use AirPrint. Apps on the App Store that use the iOS printing system also use AirPrint. The various brands whose latest printers are compatible with the Apple’s Airprint feature are:
Brother, Canon, Dell, EPSON, Gestetner, Hewlett Packard, Infotec, Lanier, Lenovo, Lexmark, NRG, RICOH, Samsung and Savin.

To use AirPrint your iOS device needs to be one of the following:

  • iPhone 3GS, iPhone 4, iPhone 4S or the iPhone 5
  • iPad – All generations, including iPad Mini
  • iPod Touch 3rd Gen and Later

What can be printed using the Apple AirPrint feature?

There are several default apps like the Mail, Photos, Safari whose internal pages etc. can be printed. The iBooks app also offers to print the pages using the same feature.

How to print from the Apple iOS device using the AirPrint feature?

To use the AirPrint feature, one has to firstly add the Wireless printer to the list of printers in the iOS device. Once it is added, you need to ensure that the Wi-Fi is turned on, and at the particular page or the file which you want to print, hit the Action icon. After you hit that, there would be an option “Print” which would activate the print feature and the device would search for the particular printer that is available and already added to the iOS device wirelessly.

Make sure that your iOS device and the Wireless enabled printer has to be on the same Wi-Fi network, or else the connection won’t be possible between the device and the printer.
