Make sure you have an AirPrint canon printer. Your iPad will need to be connected to an AirPrint-compatible canon printer in order to print anything. To see if your printer is AirPrint compatible, go to official website in your computer’s web browser and look for your printer’s model number.
You can press Ctrl+F (Windows) or ⌘ Command+F (Mac) and then type in your printer’s model number to speed up this process.
If your printer isn’t listed on this page, look for “AirPrint compatible” (or similar) on the printer’s packaging or documentation.
If you determine that your printer isn’t compatible with AirPrint, you can’t use it to print from your iPad.
Turn on your canon printer. Make sure the printer is plugged into an electrical outlet, then press the “Power” button on the printer.
Skip this step if your printer is already on.
Disconnect the canon printer’s Bluetooth or cable connections. In order to connect to your printer via AirPrint, your printer cannot be connected to your computer via Bluetooth, nor can it be connected to a router via an Ethernet cable.
You can disconnect your printer from a router by unplugging the connected Ethernet cable from the back of your printer.
Connect your canon printer to Wi-Fi if necessary. If your printer isn’t already connected to a Wi-Fi network, use the printer’s menu to select a strong Wi-Fi connection.
This step will vary depending on your printer model, so check your printer’s manual or online documentation for specific steps on connecting to Wi-Fi.
Open your iPad’s Settings. Tap the Settings app icon, which resembles a grey box with gears on it.
Tap Wi-Fi. It’s near the top-left side of the screen. Doing so opens your iPad’s Wi-Fi menu.
Make sure you’re connected to the same network as your printer. Your iPad needs to be on the same exact wireless network to which you connected your AirPrint printer.
Stand near your AirPrint printer. For optimal results, you’ll want to be within a few feet of your printer, though it’s usually safe to have the printer in another room.
Part 2: Printing with AirPrint
Open the app you want to use. Tap the app icon for the app in which the item you want to print is located.
For example, if you want to print a photo, you would tap the Photos app icon.
Not all apps support printing, but the majority of the iPad’s built-in apps should allow you to print.
Open the page or document you want to print. For example, if you’re printing from the Photos app, you’ll tap the photo you want to print.
If you’re printing a web browser page, you may have to tap ⋯ to open a menu before proceeding.
Tap the “Share” icon. It’s usually in one of the corners of the screen, though you may find it in the URL bar or the ⋯ menu if you’re using a browser. You’ll see a pop-up menu appear at the bottom of the screen.
Tap Print. This printer-shaped icon is in the bottom row of the pop-up menu.Opens the Print menu.
You may have to swipe from right to left across the bottom row of app icons in the pop-up menu to find the Print option.
Tap Printer. It’s a field at the top of the menu. This will open a list of the compatible AirPrint printers within range.
Select your printer. Tap the name of the printer with which you want to print your item.
If you can’t find your printer, make sure that the printer is on, connected to Wi-Fi, not connected to Bluetooth, not hard-wired to a router, and within range of your iPad.
Tap Print. It’s in the top-right corner of the screen. Your item will begin printing.
Depending on your printer, you may have the option to select a color or black and white printing, a page range, and so on before tapping Print.
