How Can I Print From My iPad?

The iPad comes with built-in wireless printing capabilities, but you may want to install a third-party app to get more sophisticated controls. By default, you can only set the number of copies to print when using the iPad’s native printing feature. However, it is still possible to print photos, e-mail messages, websites, and docs from your iPad. If you want more control, you can install a third-party app, such as AirPrint.

AirPrint allows you to print to most compatible printers via your iPad. To use the iPad’s built-in printer, you must share a Wi-Fi connection with your printer. Then, you can select an AirPrint printer from the printer list. Select AirPrint from the Share menu in your iPad’s app. Once you have selected the printer, you can start printing. Some printers even support multiple AirPrint connections.

Apple iOS also enables you to print wirelessly. The device’s print preview window shows you a list of discoverable Bluetooth printers. You can choose a printer from the list by tapping on the square icon with an upward pointing arrow. From here, you can choose the file you wish to print. You can also scan documents directly from the iOS device using the printer’s scanner. Once you’ve completed scanning, you can print it.
