It seems like not a day goes by that I’m not using my iphone for something other than placing an actual telephone call. Anymore, I rarely ever use it for that function. Communication via text or email is so simple. For me it is mostly used for hand held access to the internet, GPS and a good camera that slips into my pocket. Did you know you can print from most of these applications to your wireless printer? The technology and features of iPhones, and many smartphones, have become so convenient that many people are eliminating their home phone lines all together. Who needs wires to slow you down? Not me as I’m in the middle of running to do half a million different things.

It’s true that those wires served their purpose at one time. Just like that bulky parallel cable running from your PC to your printer was needed in the past. Well the times they are a-changin’ and Canon has introduced a pair of new Pixma All-In-One inkjet printers that offer AirPrint support for your various Apple devices. No more searching for cords or downloading drivers just to print and hang that candid picture you took of your co-worker when they thought no one was looking, like we did below.

Canon has pledged that, from this point forward, the majority of its Pixma printers will support AirPrint. This ensures that owners of these new devices will be able to wirelessly print photos and documents from their iPhones, iPads and iPod Touches running iOS 4.2 or newer. A seamless user experience is what this technology is promising and what we all crave in our daily lives.

Back in September 2011, Canon had released the first of its printers to support AirPrint and already carries those Canon Pixma ink cartridges. So when you are in the market for a new printer, you might want to take a second look at a Canon Pixma series printer, and see if you too can print directly from your iphone.
