    Please use the Search function of the forums. This has been covered.
    To use a printer with AirPrint in iOS 4.2.x it must be one of HP's branded printers listed on their website that are compatible. More printers and brands are likely to be compatible in the future.
    64GB iPhone 6, 64GB iPad Air 2.

    It has also been covered that there are work arounds to make non-AirPrint compatible printers work.
    Printopia is one such solution. There are others.
    I've always wanted to be smart, handsome and modest. But, I guess I'll have to be satisfied with two out of three . . .

    Also, depending what you're trying to print and the hardware you have available, Google Cloud Print may work for you.
