Printing from an iPad has become a much easier process with the introduction of Apple’s AirPrint technology. This technology allows users to wirelessly print documents, photos, and emails from their iPads to compatible printers.
Before you begin
Before beginning the process of printing wirelessly with AirPrint, it is important to confirm that your particular printer supports AirPrint. This can usually be done by consulting your printer’s manufacturer directly or checking any product manuals you may have received at purchase. As some printer models and brands do not come with built-in support for AirPrint, having this information beforehand can help save time and trouble in the future.
In addition to confirming compatibility, using AirPrint also requires both your iPhone or iPad and the printer to be connected to the same Wi-Fi network and within range of each other. Without a strong signal connection between the two devices, printing documents may take an excessive amount of time or fail altogether. Therefore, make sure that your smartphone or tablet and printer are measuring up before attempting to use AirPrint for any wireless printing needs.
AirPrint allows for printing from an iPad
AirPrint is an amazing feature that makes printing easier than ever on Apple devices. With AirPrint, you can quickly and easily print documents, emails, photos, webpages, and more from your iPad, iPhone or Mac without having to download additional software or use cables. All you need is an AirPrint-enabled printer that’s connected to the same network as your device. To start using AirPrint, open the app you want to print from. You’ll need to find the Print option; look for a Share button or Actions button in the app you are using.
When you tap on Print, a list of compatible AirPrint printers will appear. If the app doesn’t have the Print option at all, check its user guide or help section to see if it supports AirPrint. After selecting your printer and making any adjustments (such as paper size and orientation), tap Print again to begin sending the document over Wi-Fi to your printer. You should now have a perfect printed version of whatever it is you’re trying to print! With AirPrint technology revolutionizing how we share information, printing has never been easier or more convenient.
View a print job
Viewing a print job is an important aspect of managing your printer. Being able to quickly review any jobs you’ve sent for printing gives you the opportunity to make sure everything looks good and is queued properly. It can also be useful for tracking redundant or unnecessary tasks that are being sent through the printer. In order to view a print job on most devices, it is necessary to open the App Switcher and then select the Print Center option.
When using Print Center, all of the recent jobs you’ve sent should appear in a list format for easy identification and assessment. You can review each item with more detail by tapping into an individual job listing, which offers information like document type, required pages and color settings – so if anything has changed since its initial submission, it should be clearly visible here. Most devices use this option as the primary method for reviewing print jobs but some newer models may have their own viewing options within the settings menu – so always make sure to check there too just in case.
Cancel a print job
Canceling a print job is relatively straightforward, provided you have the correct tools. Ensure that your printer is connected to the same network, either wirelessly or through a wired connection, as your device before beginning. If it is not, you will need to connect it before attempting to cancel a print job. Once connected, open up the App Switcher and tap on Print Center. From there, simply tap Cancel Printing and the current printing job will be canceled without having any effect on future jobs.
AirPrint is unique in that it only works with Wi-Fi or wired network connections; unfortunately, devices connected to USB ports of Apple Airport Base Station and Time Capsules can’t use AirPrint and neither can devices connected to your computer via Bluetooth connection. Additionally, AirPrint cannot streamline multiple printer cultures like drivers may be able to do with non-AirPrint printers. Despite this slight limitation, AirPrint remains one of the most efficient ways to quickly complete jobs across all modern mobile devices.
