I have a Canon printer at home with laser ink technology. recently my brother gifted me an iPhone and while browsing on it, I came across a poster which really liked so I proceeded to print it out since my printer is a wireless one and both my printer and iPhone are on the same wifi. But nothing happened. Do I need to install some software on my iPhone to connect it to my printer? Can anyone here tell me a possible cause and solution for my issue?
Hello Corey, there is no need to install additional software. By using AirPrint you can print wirelessly from your iPhone. Airprint enable you to print web pages, photos, email from your iPhone to Canon printer without installing any additional driver.
In the list of recently used app, a Print icon will display at the time of printing. From here, you can check the print progress. To view the list of latest used applications, you have to press Home button on your iPhone. By doing this, Print icon will display at the bottom of Home screen.
Step 1 : Make sure your Canon printer is powered on. If Canon printer is on then turn it off and then back on again. Now check if your problem gets resolved or not.
Step 2 : Check that your Canon printer is connected to same network subnet as the device on which iOS is installed.
Step 3 : Check your Canon printer has enough paper and ink.
Step 4 : If your Canon printer has LCD monitor then confirm that no error message is displaying on that LCD monitor.
Step 5 : If you have disabled Bonjour on your system then AirPrint will not work. So check the LAN settings of your printer and enable Bonjour.
