Wireless Printers for iPad – AirPrint Enabled Printers

Posted on 26 June 2011 by admin

 

What is AirPrint?
Airprint is a technology designed by Apple to allow you to wirelessly print directly from your iPad. Whether it’s an email, presentation, photo, document or web page, they can all can be printed out wirelessly from anywhere in the home, just by tapping the screen. The preinstalled Print Center app allows you to send the item to be printed, then instantly get on with other tasks such as surfing as the print out is dealt with in the background. Of course it’s not just the iPad that can print wirelessly. All devices with the iOS 4.2 update or above are capable such as the iPhone or iPod Touch.

Any AirPrint enabled wireless printer on your home network is automatically detected by the iPad, making it easy and simple to start printing in minutes. AirPrint printers are currently manufactured by all the major players in the printer market – Canon, HP and Epson to mention a few. You can learn more and check out all compatible printers on the Apple AirPrint page here.

I was curious to see how iPad technologies integrated with wireless printers, and the main printer I found to be capable was the HP CN245B Photosmart

It’s an odd thing, Apple seem to re-invent the wheel for every new product they develop, and the iPad is no different. Printers looking to integrate with the iPad need to have AirPrint enabled… there is a list of printers which integrate with iPad below – hope this helps! All HP curiously!

HP Envy e-All-in-One series (D410a)
HP Photosmart Plus e-AiO (B210a)
HP Photosmart Premium e-AiO (C310a)
HP Photosmart eStation (C510) ** Awesome Printer
HP LaserJet P1102w Printer

    its surprising though the amount of people who have printers that arent airprint enabled, i have an hp that only got in 2012 and don’t want to spend extra replacing a perfectly good printer to get one that is airprint enabled
    there is an hp eprint app or the print n share app which i found to be more versatile
