While a growing number of us were busy not printing anymore, Apple and its partners were feverishly growing the number of AirPrint compatible printers

While a growing number of us were busy not printing anymore, Apple and its third-party printer maker partners were feverishly growing the number of AirPrint compatible printers, almost doubling since late last year.

Back in November 2013, the Fairer Platform noted that more than 400 printers supported AirPrint. Today that number has ballooned to 765.

That said, what got me in the mood to count and then create a table in Numbers to display the results was a Canon press release announcing that the new Pixma MG3520 Wireless All-in-One is AirPrint compatible. And, yes, Canon is the top vendor

To use AirPrint, you will need an iPad, iPhone (3GS or later) or iPod touch (3G or later) and a compatible printer connected to a Mac running OS X Lion or Mountain Lion.

See what they did there? Pretty clever.

To see whether or not your particular printer is AirPrint compatible, check out Apple’s AirPrint Basics, which includes the full list.

If your printer isn’t listed, fret not. Get Netputing’s HandyPrint, which quickly and easily makes just about any printer AirPrint compatible and it costs only a buck.
