This is good news for people using iOS-based devices who also own a Canon printer. Canon has announced the release of three new printers supporting Apple AirPrint technology. The AirPrint feature facilitates wireless printing for photos, e-mails, web pages, and other documents as well, without any need to install the device drivers. Thus, the technology is time saving and streamlined for the users.
Canon is a leading provider of digital imaging products. The Canon printers that now support AirPrint are – PIXMA MG8220, MG6220 , and MG5320 Wireless Photo All-In-One inkjet photo printers. The AirPrint technology works with iPad, iPad 2, iPhone 3GS, iPhone 4, and iPod Touch (3rd generation and later) that use iOS 4.2 or later.
Users of iOS-based devices, especially iPad users were intrigued by the limited printing capabilities, as only HP provides AirPrint support feature in some of its printers. Therefore, consumers had a limited choice while purchasing a new printer. Now Canon has also entered the competitive market with these three PIXMA models. AirPrint feature is expected to become a regular feature in all forthcoming Canon models.
If you already possess one of these Canon printers and wonder why it does not support AirPrint technology, then you need not worry. Just upgrade the printer’s firmware to enable the feature. You can look at the complete instructions to check the update on Canon website .
The next time you click a photo from your Apple device, don't forget to take the print out from a Canon PIXMA wireless printer with the AirPrint technology.
