Wireless Printers compatible with iPad

The 10 Best AirPrint Printers

When Apple first included its AirPrint printing utility—which allows printing from an iPhone or iPad to a compatible printer on the same Wi-Fi network—in an iOS upgrade in late 2010, only a handful of HP printers were supported. Fortunately, AirPrint compatibility has greatly expanded in the past few years, and most of the new Wi-Fi-enabled printers we test are AirPrint compatible.

AirPrint, which is built into Apple's iOS operating system, is among the simplest ways to print from an iOS device, requiring no special software or apps. You initiate a Print command from your iOS device, choose between AirPrint-compatible printers on your Wi-Fi network (if you have more than one). Tweak a few settings if you want, or just go ahead and print.

Starting with iPhone 3GS, Apple smartphones have been AirPrint-enabled, and most recent printers from major printer brands, including but not limited to Brother, Canon, Dell, Fuji/Xerox, HP, Lexmark, Ricoh, and Samsung, are AirPrint-compatible. (Apple has a omplete list of AirPrint-compatible printers available.) AirPrint printing functionality is the same no matter which model iPhone you own (provided that it's 3GS or later); it will work with iPads and iPods touch as well. With AirPrint you can print documents from Apple programs, such as Photos, Safari, Mail, and iPhoto, as well as other email clients, Office documents, and many third-party apps.

Although there are other ways of printing from an iPhone or iPad, including manufacturers' and third-party printing apps, or software installed on a PC on your network, AirPrint is the simplest and most reliable choice, provided your printer supports it, and AirPrint capability is a big plus for a printer. Here are our top 10 printers and multifunction printers (MFPs) that are AirPrint enabled.

If your wireless printer has something called AirPrint, just turn it on and you can connect your iPad easily. If not, you'll need an app to make it work.
