iOS 4.2 AirPrint: List of Supported Printers

As all of you Apple fans know the iOS 4.2 has been delivered. I have to say, I was beginning to doubt Apple but I was wrong. They have delivered the update as promised in November, next time though I want to know a date if it’s going to be a month or two in advance. We did in fact inform you of the time that it would be updated and since then we have talked to you about an iOS 4.2 review as well as the AirPlay along with its limitations.

One of the most anticipated parts to the update is the AirPrint, the thought of being able to print off your photographs wirelessly has had iPad and iPhone users chomping at the bit to try it out. Unfortunately this doesn’t work with all printers so we thought we would be helpful and bring you a list of compatible printers. Currently there are 10 that will work there will be an additional 6 printers added fairly soon.

The 10 printers that currently work are as follows. The HP ENVY100 e-All-in-One, HP Photosmart Premium e-All-in-One and HP Photosmart e-All-in-One, the LaserJet Pro CP1525, HP Photosmart Premium Fax e-All-in-One, HP Photosmart eStation, HP Photosmart Plus e-All-in-One, the HP LaserJet Pro M1536dnf and finally the HP LaserJet Pro CM1415f.

The guys over at pcmag.com have had a chance to play around with the new features and will also give you a list of all of the additional 6 printers that will be being added, to reach their article click here.

What do you think of the AirPrint, are you encountering any problems with using it? Let us know in the comments below.

    It looks like an awesome feature, but the limited ability to use it was not so obvious. It seemed like in Apple's advertising it would work with ANY wifi-enabled printer on the same wifi network as the idevice being used, but I now understand this is not the case. I will EVENTUALLY bring myself to replace my fully functional printer/scanner/copier (that does print from my iphone & iPad via 3rd party app) for an AirPrint compatible one….just can't see it happening any time soon.

    The AirPlay feature also looks amazing, but unfortunately will not work with my 1yr old appleTV, only the brand new one. Is it just me, or is it insanely annoying that Apple's new software makes even recently purchased hardware very limited on the capacity to support future updates (i.e. iPhone 3G)??

    Only 9 out of the 10 compatible printers are listed.

    The hyperlink where it says "to reach their article click here" is not active (2nd to last paragraph).

    I'm really mad that the investment I made recently in the apple tv with hard drive is not supported by any of these recent software updates. I have no idea how apple cam get away with this for the so many loyal customer they have that have invested a their products have been launched ! A real disappointment for sure and one that will at some point soon start to push away am loyal customer base. Davidfgrubb@hotmail.com

      Go on Amazon.com or list your current model on craigslist to sell back. It'll be gone in a few days and upgrade to the new model. This is what we all do. You don't ever keep old products from Apple too long. Set up a seller account on Amazon.com right away.

    I find AirPlay awesome!! I played movies and music from my iPad and iPhone with no effort. I first had to update the software on my newly purchased Apple TV, but then immediately discovered it on my iPad and could select any movie to play. What happens is you start playing your movie on the iPad and ten you can switch to the Apple TV by clicking on an icon that looks like a triangle with an arrow which opens up a drop down that allows you to select the device you wan to play the movie on. After seconds it transmits the move to the screen of your TV and your iPad goes black. Very cool!

    I agree. It is too risky to fully depend on Apple however tempting. I have just bought a Sony Vaio S3 with Windows 7 which is a good alternative and relativey cheap for a commercial machine.

    Are they kidding me… all HP junk printers? I have a Canon wireless printer (the other great brand). Why are they so up HP's @$$ on this one. Hurry and get more printers because I am never buying an HP again.
