Use AirPrint to print directly from a wired or wireless device without using a print driver. AirPrint is a software feature that allows for driverless printing from Apple iOS-based mobile devices and Mac OS-based devices. AirPrint-enabled printers allow for printing directly from a Mac or from an iPhone, iPad, or iPod touch.


  • Not all applications support AirPrint.
  • Wireless devices must join the same wireless network as the printer.
  • For AirPrint to function, both IPP and Bonjour (mDNS) protocols must be enabled.
  • The device that submits the AirPrint job must be on the same subnet as the printer. To allow devices to print from different subnets, configure your network to pass multicast DNS traffic across subnets.
  • The Mac OS device must be Mac OS 10.7 or later.
  • AirPrint-enabled printers work with iPad (all models), iPhone (3GS or later), and iPod touch (3rd generation or later), running the latest version of iOS.
