iOS 4.2: Wireless printing for iPad, iPod Touch and iPhone

The latest beta of Apple’s iOS 4.2, which is expected to be released around November time, is coming with printer support and the new feature AirPrint. This enables wireless printing from the iPad, iPod Touch and iPhone over Wi-Fi. According to reports from Mashable the first devices to support AirPrint will be HP’s line of ePrint enabled printers.

Currently the software is only available through Apple’s iOS developer program, and they have announced it will be available for the majority in roughly 2 months. Once it has been launched, printing will be accessible on the devices above without the need to install drivers or software.

AirPrint allows you to manage all of the pages you print and other functions by using the Print Center. By using this you can keep track of your printing progress and coordinate your print queue. AirPrint is also said to support a wide range of print functions through the iOS 4.2, including page range selection as well as single-sided and double-sided printing.
