For AirPrint to work, you must have a compatible printer with Wi-Fi. Most major printer manufacturers have AirPrint installed in their latest models.

In order to use AirPrint, the printer must be connected to the same Wi-Fi network as your iDevice.

To print the article you’ve found (or a document or photo on your iDevice), tap the square with the up arrow in it in the bottom center of your screen.

Then, slide the bottom menu to the left until you see the Print. Tap on the Print icon and it will bring up Printer Options. Tap Select Printer and you should see your printer (if it’s compatible) in the menu. Choose the printer, select how many copies you would like, and tap Print. Now, go grab the article hot off the press!
