How to Print Photos Directly from the iPhone and iPad Easily

Apple’s AirPrint is a simple and easy way to print things right from your iPhone or iPad without having to connect any wires or transfer files. For beginners, this can be a boon because instead of transferring files from your iPhone/iPad to the computer just to print them, you can now simply use AirPrint to print photos, webpages etc.

In this quickie, you’ll get to print photos from your Photo albums directly on any AirPrint-capable printer that’s around your house.

How to Print Photos Directly from the iPhone and iPad

Step #1. The first step is to make sure that your iPhone and the printer are both connected to the same Wi-fi network.

AirPrint works on the principle of discovery (iPhone finds and connects to an AirPrint device) so they need to be on the same Wi-fi network.

So connect your iPhone to the Wi-fi network and turn on Wi-fi of your printer too.

Step #2. Now, open the camera roll or any album from the Photos app. Pick a photo to print.

If you want to print multiple photos at once,  you should tap on the Edit button on top-right and then select the photos you want to print. Unlike email, there is no limit to how many photos you can get printed.

Step #3. If you’re printing just one photo, tap on it and then tap on the share icon on bottom-left.

If you’re printing multiple photos, tap on Share after selecting the photos to be printed.

Step #4. Tap on Print. This takes you to the print screen.

If you have connected your printer to the Wi-fi network and it is AirPrint capable, it will be auto-detected and shown.

All you do now is select the number of copies and hit Print.

That’s all for now!
