Want to know about how to print from your iPhone device. It can often feel like you’re a couple’s therapist. It can seem like a hassle, but if you can get it to work, the convenience is undeniable. We are going to illustrate through the process of printing from your iPhone or iPad with various methods that are sure to suit your needs.
Start from the very First Method-
How to print using Apple AirPrint
AirPrint-enabled apps let you create and print full-quality documents and graphics without the chore of installing drivers or configuring the printer queue. The needs are rather minimal: You need any model iPad, and iPhone 3 Gs or later or a third-generation iPod touch- as well as the latest version of iOS and an AirPrint-compatible printer with the new firmware.
You can check Apple’s AirPrint bais support page for a vast list of compatible devices, including models from Canon, Epson, HP, Samsung, and a ton of other manufacturers. AirPrint functionality is the same in almost all the iPhone whether it is iPhone or an iPhone 11.
Connect to Wi-Fi
When you are using AirPrint, both printer and iPhone must be connected with the same Wi-Fi network connection. Keep in mind always that there may be multiple networks available in an office setting so you might have to enable the particular AirPrint depending on which one your printer is using.
Select the Printer
Make sure for the connection between your iPhone and the printer by opening an AirPrint-supported app such as Mail, Safari, or Evernote. You can see the reply or forward mail icon. Tap the icon, select Print, and your printer should appear as the selected device by default. If it’s not working, click on the Printer at the top and allow your iPhone to scan for nearby printers.
Select Number of Copies
Here, you can select how many copies of the documents you want and submit it. At least one copy is necessary to have. You can print up to a total of 99 pages at once if you’re feeling trigger-happy.
Once you have selected the number of copies you want, hit the print button in the top right corner of the page appearing on the screen. You can easily cancel your print job or check its status by double-tapping the Home button.
Printing with Non-AirPrint Printer
Yes, you can still print if your printer isn’t AirPrint enabled. The best and most common way this works through an app from the manufacturers and a wireless access point that the printer creates.
Find the button as shown on the above, click on it, navigate to settings-Wi-Fi and search for an open network that includes your same printer’s brand or model name in it.

How to Print Using E-mail
Do you have an idea that not only the peoples who have email addresses? Many of Epson and HP’s new models feature HP ePrint or Epson Email print for printing anytime and anywhere. You can do this anywhere in the world by simply emailing a photo or document file to your printer’s assigned email. Once it’s done, the process is quite easy and straightforward, just requiring you to send an email from your iPhone to the email-compatible printer.
Activate the E-mail Printing
Hypothetically, you have an email-compatible printer, you have to do is activate the email function in the printer. The enabling process will vary from device to device. The printer will be assigned a default email address upon activation, which will likely amount to a series of random characters at a particular domain name. You can change it later. Here, is the benefit that it’s not mandatory that your iPhone should be also connected to the same Wi-Fi as your printer to use email printing. The printer still required to connect via Wi-Fi as opposed to a standard USB cable.
Once you set up properly, all you have to do is email a document or whatever soft copy you want to send from your iPhone to your printer and it will automatically print the file to the default specification. Make sure about the suitable file to upload, because your printer won’t accept all file formats. Check your printer for details regarding the acceptable file and the number of attachments you can include per email.
How to Print Using Other Software
