How to Print an Email on the iPhone 5

AirPrint is a very convenient feature on your iPhone that allows you to print to an AirPrint-capable printer on your wireless network. One of the biggest advantages of AirPrint is that you don’t need to install any drivers or software on your iPhone. Once your iPhone and your AirPrint printer are on the same network, then printer will be available on the iPhone’s Print menu. You may have already used AirPrint to print pictures or Web pages, but you can also use it to print emails.


Use AirPrint in Mail on the iPhone 5

While I initially thought that AirPrint was just something of a fad or gimmick, I have found that it can be very useful at work or when I’m at home and don’t want to bother printing something from my computer. This is especially true when it comes to email, as that has become the primary location where I read most of my messages. And if there’s something important that I want to be able to see or read on a physical piece of paper, then ease and simplicity of AirPrint is hard to top.
