AirPrint now supports more than 300 printers
AirPrint is Apple’s technology for enabling wireless printing from an iPhone, iPod touch or iPad, and it’s built into OS X 10.6 and later. Although fewer people feel a need to print, the mothership and its partners haven’t stopped development — now, more than 300 printer models from Brother, Canon, Dell, EPSON, Hewlett Packard, Lenovo, Lexmark and Samsung offer AirPrint support.
When was the last time you printed a map or coupon? Chances are, if you have an iPhone, iPod touch and/or iPad, you no longer have much (any?) need to.
And, you’re not alone. Apple’s iThings in general and the iPad in particular have been credited with saving a lot of trees, which is a good thing™.
AirPrint compatible iThings: Any iPad, iPod touch (3rd generation or later), iPhone 3GS or later running iOS 6
That said, if you still need to print from time to time, AirPrint is even better and now supports more than 300 from Brother, Canon, Dell, EPSON, Hewlett Packard, Lenovo, Lexmark and Samsung — w00t!
You can view the full list of compatible printers on Apple’s AirPrint 101 Knowledge Base article.
And, if you don’t see your specific model, fret not as Netputing’s handyPrint (nee AirPrint Activator) supports hundreds if not thousands of printer models — it’s free and very, very easy to use.
