How to Print a Web Page on the iPhone 5 with AirPrint

Your iPhone 5 can connect to your Wi-Fi network to reduce the amount of data that you are using, but it can also take advantage of some of the resources that exist on that network. One of the features that it can use is AirPrint, which uses the Bonjour service to allow you to print to a compatible printer without installing any drivers. AirPrint is a built-in feature on your iPhone 5, and is what you need to use to quickly and easily print documents, photos and Web pages from your phone.


How to Print from Safari on the iPhone 5

Not every printer is compatible with AirPrint unfortunately, but many newer wireless printers are. You can see a list of compatible AirPrint printers here. If your printer is on that list and connected to your wireless network, then you are ready to go. If it is not on that list, you can purchase an AirPrint compatible printer here. If your printer is on that list but is not connected to your wireless network, then follow the instructions from the manufacturer to get it connected.

So, to summarize, you should have:

  • iPhone 5 connected to Wi-Fi network
  • Airprint compatible printer connected to the same network as the iPhone 5
