One of the most anticipated features of iOS 4 was its wireless printing feature, dubbed AirPrint. The service allows users to print directly from iOS devices. AirPrint was supposed to utilize any printers shared by Macs on the same local network as the iOS device. While this feature was cut before release, third party applications do exist to enable it. Despite AirPrint not being as powerful as it once was, HP has not stopped adding new AirPrint printers to the fray.
There are now eight additional printers that are AirPrint-enabled. The new list consists of seven black and white printers, as well as one color, five of which are multi-function printers.
The total number of Airport-enabled printers is now up to 27 printers. Of the 27, five of them are available to purchase directly from Apple’s website. If you are somebody who needs to print a lot of items but you don’t want to hassle with emailing items and then printing from your Mac, there should be a printer available from HP that suits your needs.
If you have any questions regarding AirPrint be sure to check out Apple’s support document for the technology.Follow @macgasm
