Your iPhone 5 can do a lot of things, but one feature that might be preventing you from using it more often is the difficulty that comes with printing from the device. So if you have a picture on your iPhone 5 that you want to print, it is something that you may be putting off until you have an opportunity to connect your iPhone to your printer and offload your pictures that way. But what you might not realize is that you can print pictures directly from your iPhone 5 in iOS 7, and it doesn’t even require you to download any printer drivers to your phone. Many Apple products have a feature called AirPrint that simply requires you to have a compatible printer and you can print a number of different files and items directly from the phone.
Printing iPhone 5 Pictures
Note that this tutorial will assume that you have an AirPrint-capable printer. You can see a full list of AirPrint printers on Apple’s site here. If your printer is not capable of AirPrint, then you can email the picture to yourself and print it from a computer that is connected to your printer. If you have been thinking about buying a new printer and want one that is compatible with AirPrint, then this HP model is a good choice. So continue reading below to learn how to print a picture from your iPhone 5 to your AirPrint-capable printer.
