How to Add Printer to iPhone

Wireless printing lets you print without even having to get up from your desk. After connecting your phone and printer, configure them properly so that you can print webpages, emails, documents, and more. Many printers today come with AirPrint compatibility. The AirPrint feature in iPhones makes it easy to print without any additional apps or software. Printers are added to the device through the Printer Options menu. Access the Printer Options menu through the Settings application. 

Even wireless printers that do not have the AirPrint feature can still be used for remote printing via iPhones. The apps for such printing vary with different manufacturers. Refer to the printer user guide for finding the app. The first and foremost step in this process is to connect the printer to a wireless network. This is how it is done.
