To print from your iPhone or iPad, you’ll need to use the AirPrint feature. This is a built-in feature that allows you to print wirelessly from your device to a compatible printer. To use AirPrint, simply open the document or file that you want to print, tap the Share icon, and select Print. Then, choose the printer that you want to use and tap Print. Your document will start printing wirelessly! If you don’t see your printer listed, make sure that it’s turned on and connected to the same Wi-Fi network as your iPhone or iPad. You should also check for any software updates that may be available for your printer. Once everything is up-to-date, try printing again.
