For this you will need to corroborate the following:

  • That the printer you have available is compatible with AirPrint. You can see the compatible models on the official Apple website.
  • That your iPhone or iPod Touch is 3GS or higher, or an iPad.
  • The correct update of  iOS and Firmware of the printer so that it works correctly.
  • Your iPhone, iPad or iPod Touch and the printer are connected on the same Wi-Fi network.

How to print from my iPhone with AirPrint in a few steps

Once you have confirmed it, you must have the app installed on your iPhone. In case you don’t have it yet, you can download it from the Apple Store.

Keep in mind that you can print from any app available on your mobile device, such as Mail, Safari, Photos, Camera, Maps, Page, Documents, etc.

To start printing, you must position yourself on the document. At the bottom of the screen you should have the option to “Share”. It is represented by an arrow to the left or an arrow sticking out of a square, this will depend on the device you have.

In case you do not have the option to share, you must look for the icon of the three dots to access the document menu.

The next thing will be to scroll down the options and click on ” Print “, represented by a printer icon. Then you will have to click on ” Select ” to choose the app to print and look for the option ” AirPrint “.

The app will open and from there you can configure the printing, either the size, the number of copies, which pages you want to print, in case the document has several pages.

When you have finished preparing everything for printing, click on the ” Select ” button that you have to the right of ” Printer ” at the top of the screen. Find the printer and click on it.

Once you have everything ready, click on the ” Print ” button , you have it in the upper right corner of the screen of your device.

After you have given the order to print, you can see all the printing tasks and cancel some if you wish.

To see the print tasks, open the app launcher and select ” Printing .” If instead, what you want is to cancel a printing order that you have given by mistake, open the app selector, click on ” Printing “, find the task you want to cancel.

When you click on it, you will see the detail: name of the document, number of copies, the printing mode and the state it is in. At the end of the list you have a ” Cancel printing” button . Click on it to confirm the cancellation.

How to print without AirPrint from your iPhone

If, on the other hand, you are not lucky enough to have an AirPrint compatible printer , you do not have to rush to buy one. We always give you a solution. Keep in mind that the process has a little more steps, but it is just as simple.

In order to do this, you will need to have the help of some third-party apps. Some printers even have their own applications to make your work easier.

Keep in mind that it doesn’t matter what process you use to print a document wirelessly. Both device and printer must be connected to the same Wi-Fi network.

If you have a low quality internet and you don’t have a good connection from your cell phone, don’t worry because there are ways to increase the Wi-Fi signal from your iPhone phone.

In order to find any other app to install on your iPhone, you must look for information about the printer that you have available. Go to their website and search for their apps for mobile devices.

You will find most of the apps compatible between printer and IOS device in the official Apple Store stores. They are generally paid applications. Some of the ones we can mention are:

  • Brhoter iPrint & Scan
  • Printer Pro Lite
  • Print Agent Lite

Regardless of the app you download, you will need to configure it on both the device and the printer so that they can be synchronized to print. The steps to follow will be the same as with AirPrint.

With Apple technology you can not only print wirelessly from your phone, but you can also control your Mac computer from your iPhone cell phone.
