AirPrint from Apple simplifies printing over a wireless network, removing the need to install drivers or software. Launched with 12 compatible printers in 2010 – soon after the introduction of the iPad and in response to users’ concerns about its inability to print – AirPrint has since become an integral part of the Apple ecosystem and there are currently over 4000 compatible printer models.
AirPrint is ideal for workplaces where there are lots of Apple devices to print from, cutting down on the amount of time that would be spent setting up each one to print.
