AirPrint is a software feature that allows you to print from wired or wireless Apple iOS-based mobile devices and Mac OS-based devices without the need to install a print driver. AirPrint-enabled printers allow you to print or fax directly from a Mac, an iPhone, iPad, or iPod touch. You can use AirPrint to print from a wired device or a wireless device without using a print driver.

Note:

  • 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 10.10 or later.
  • AirPrint-enabled printers work with all models of iPad, iPhone (3GS or later), and iPod touch (3rd generation or later), running the latest version of iOS.

To Configure the Printer For Use With AirPrint:

  1. Access the printer's Embedded Web Server (Web Interface). See the Related Content for additional information.
