Apple’s AirPrint announcement benefits HP e-All-in-One customers

Update November 22, 2010:
It's here! Apple today announced that AirPrint wireless printing is now available as a free software update with Apple iOS 4.2. This means that if you are an iPad, iPhone, or iPod touch user, you will now see an embedded print function within apps on your device and will be able to automatically find and print to a printer without the need to install drivers or download software.

HP's existing and upcoming ePrint enabled printers are the only printers to support direct printing from Apple iOS devices - no other printer company offers this capability. Here is the complete list of HP ePrint enabled printers that offer compatibility with AirPrint. More info about this exciting development can be found at http://www.hp.com/go/airprint.

 

Apple logoApple today announced AirPrint wireless printing as part of the company's iOS 4.2, a free software update for iPad, iPhone and iPod touch users available next month. With AirPrint, people using Apple devices will find a print function automatically enabled within the apps on their device and they will be able to select a printer on their network and print to it without the need to install drivers or download software.


HP’s existing and upcoming ePrint enabled printers will be the only printers to support direct printing from iOS devices at launch – which makes a lot of sense given HP’s stated vision of making it easy customers to print anytime, anywhere. Our ePrint enabled printers already make it possible to send a print job to the printer via email, but now Apple’s AirPrint will make the print option readily available by embedding a print option into the many apps Apple offers customers of the iPad, iPhone, and iPod touch devices.


I’ve been impressed with previous attempts of getting Apple products to “play” with HP printers. Awhile back HP released a mobile app for iPhone and iPod touch called HP iPrint Photo that basically enables wireless printing of photos on your device to any HP WiFi-enabled printer. It’s installed on my iPod touch and my kids think it’s “magic” when I send photos to print from the iPod to the printer in the next room.


The release of iOS 4.2 will make it just that much easier to print photos and documents directly from the apps – and I’m so pleased that HP will be the very first printing company to offer this capability.


Some Q&A about AirPrint and HP printers and the post on HP's Corporate blog give additional detail.

I have an iPhone and it will not print with my new hp 6500A, even though AirPrint is supposted to be supported.  Apple refers me to HP who refers me to the router people.  No one can help me get this to work.  I can print wirelessly from a Win laptop but not from the iPhone and HP can't/won't troubleshoot this.  I'm about ready to just return the printer.

Well we have a B110 series FFBCAA that is an ePrinter.  But we have just been told by Apple that this is not an air printer and that only printers with e-aio after ther name are air printers!   So be careful of what you buy as things still seem confussed.

I'm am pissed.  I purchased a C309g in October. I have an iPad and I gave away a perfectly good HP Printer to buy a wifi printer afer I heard that 4.2 iOS would support Printing.  I dind not know I would have to buy a ePrint Printer for it to work.  In fact the Store did not have any printers advertized as ePrint.  I bought a new printer for nothing and wasted my money.  Thanks HP and Apple!

Thank you. We've reported your concern.

I just recently updated my iphone and ipad as well to the 4.2. I had a hp printer but it did not support the new apple software. There are about ten hp models that currently support the new software. I have the hp photosmart premium all in one c310 and it works great. You can also purchase the plus.

I'm very frustrated! I have the C309n. I have both the iPad and iPhone 4, and both running 4.2 iOS. While iPrint Photo 3.0 works fine on both devices, the AirPrint can't locate any printers. Also, another person I know has the C309a. They can't use either program to print.

I had the same problems on the D110.  But, here's how to fix it.  You have to install e-print (assuming you have the option).  Once that happened and I enabled it, I went back to my iPhone 4 and found the printer immediately.  Try it!

When I updated my iPad and iPhone to iOS4.2 and found the ability to Print, I hurried out and purchased a HP C310a printer. The C310a was on HP and Apples list of supported printers for AirPrint. I have discovered neither of my iDevices are able find the new HP C310a. I called HP for support, I was told HP does NOT support AirPrint, They told me to call Apple. I asked the HP rep if I could conference Apple in on the call. HP was very clear that they DO NOT allow 3 way calls. Apple did try to help, but was unable to. HP was not at all interested in helping me get the printer they built and sold to function.

I have a 1 year old B209a, will there be an update for this printer, so I can utilize the AirPrint?  What a bummer if not.

I have the Color LaserJet CP1518n.  Will the HP Wireless Printing Upgrade Kit enable Apple's AirPrint Capability?  If not, what other options do I have?

So, I just started using my new HP OfficeJet J4680 All-in-One WiFi printer 10 days ago.  Will there ever be the capability to use AirPrint from my iPhone to talk to this printer?  I won't be buying any new printers anytime soon as I have 7 HP printers in the house already. It would be nice to have some update to the printer firmware or something in order to make it possible to use my 4680.

Waited all this time playing with round-about software & now find only HP eprint printers work with "AirPrint." Boo...These are new just released printers. I have a C309n Wireless Photosmart Prem-web printer that is the best I could buy this summer. What a rip!!!!!!!!

Hi all, I just updated this post to reflect the most current info... if there are issues with your printer, I'd encourage you to check out the HP printer support forums - http://bit.ly/ePrintSupport. And if you have questions about your Apple product, please feel free to contact Apple's customer support. Good luck - and happy printing!

I agree with Eric... our support forums are the best. And, last I checked, the D110 firmware update was still slated for November. No exact date. So pleased to see the amount of interest in this topic, thank you.

Jonathan and Barney, thanks for asking about firmware updates.  We check for that information on the ePrintCenter support forums.  I'd recommend asking printer related questions there as you'll probably get an answer more quickly!

Nah the D110 still doesn't work with Air-print directly works Via Windows with 10.1 Beta 2 or OSX 10.5 Beta / Itunes 10.1 Beta 2. Any update on ETA on new D110A Firmware that allow for it?

Barney
Barney (Oct. 7, 2010)

Any Update Yet, I've ordered a Photosmart C310 But the shipping date is 6-8 days away according to My Vendor..  Has anyone had luck getting airprint to see a Photosmart D110??

Barney
Barney (Oct. 4, 2010)

Liza , Is there an Update for the d110 Firmware or something special we need to setup on the Printer for it to work.. I ask because i'm an registered apple IOS developer and I'm running ios 4.2 beta 2 on an iPad 3g , iphone 3Gs and an iPhone 4 ... all have airprint available and None of them are finding My d110

For those of you wondering whether the D110a will be compatible with AirPrint when it becomes available... I confirmed with the product team and PR that yes, it will be compatible. Thanks for your interest!

The firmware on the HP Photosmart Plus e-All-in-One B210, HP Photosmart Premium e-All-in-One C310, and HP Photosmart Premium with Fax e-All-in-One C410 are ready for AirPrint as of today.

Will the firmware update for the existing hp printers be released before iOS4? I am a developer and have the D110a and would like to be able to test.
