Your iPhone 5 has a feature on it called AirPrint that allows you to print to any Airprint capable printer on the same Wi-Fi network as your iPhone. This is accomplished with a service called Bonjour, and the HP Officejet 6700 supports it. So once you have connected your Officejet 6700 to a wireless network, it is ready to print files from your iPhone.
Print iPhone Pictures on the Officejet 6700
We are going to focus this tutorial on printing pictures from the iPhone, but you can follow a similar process to print other items on your phone, such as emails and documents. Basically any app that offers a Print option can use AirPrint. With that in mind, follow the steps below to send a picture from your iPhone 5 to the Officejet 6700.
Step 1: Tap the Photos icon.
Step 2: Select the Camera Roll option.
Step 3: Tap the thumbnail image of the picture that you want to print.
Step 4: Touch the Share icon at the bottom-left corner of the screen.
Step 5: Select the Print option.
Step 6: Touch the Printer option at the top of the screen if a printer other than the Officejet 6700 is displayed. If the Officejet 6700 is displayed, you can skip to step 8.
Step 7: Select the Officejet 6700 from the list of AirPrint capable printers. (I have multiple Officejet 6700’s on my network, which is why there are more than 1 displayed).
Step 8: Touch the Print button.
