When the Fairer Platform last checked back in July 2013, Apple AirPrint was supported by 765 printers across 19 brands. Sometime over the intervening months, that number finally surpassed 1,000.

To be precise, as of this writing, Apple lists 1,029 printer models from two dozen makers now support AirPrint. Although there is certainly some overlap — various brands catalog the same printer model under different names — that is still quite an accomplishment

Over the last year, the total has increased by 264 printers and five brands (bold).

Printer Brands That Support AirPrint

Brother, Canon, Dell, EPSON, Fuji Xerox, Gestetner, Hewlett Packard, Infotec, Kyocera, Lanier, Lenovo, Lexmark, NRG, NTT, Oki Data, Olivetti, RICOH, Samsung, Savin, Sharp, TA Triumph-Adler/UTAX, Toshiba, Xerox and Zink

As you might expect, the top printer brands are also the top AirPrint supporters — Brother, Canon, HP and Epson. Others, such as newcomer Zink, catalog only a couple compatible models.

Of course, not every printer from the brands listed support Apple’s wireless printing tech, but the list is clearly getting longer. Obviously, given the growth in both printers and brands, AirPrint compatibility is a competitive advantage for both Apple and the two dozen brands listed — kudos.

AirPrint launched in the Fall of 2010 as part of iOS 4.2 and requires at least OS X 10.6.x.
