The more you get to use your iPhone Xs or iPhone Xs Max, the more you get attached to the things you store on it. And whether it is a photo or an email, perhaps even a cute PDF presentation or whatever else you have in there, one day, you might want to transfer it on paper. Just because it’s on a smartphone, not on a PC, it doesn’t mean you’re stuck with it in there. Or that you must transfer it to a computer before you can print documents from iPhone Xs or iPhone Xs Max.
Here’s the thing: the iOS software is ready to print wirelessly, from any iPhone Xs or iPhone Xs Max, to any wireless printer out there. The only condition is for the printer to actually be an AirPrint enabled printer. Now that we’ve settled on this essential aspect, let’s walk you through the actual process of how to print documents on iPhone Xs and iPhone Xs Max.
How to print documents wirelessly from iPhone Xs or iPhone Xs Max
The process would mostly consist of opening the documents, using the print button, and selecting the printer. In some instances, you might also have to tweak some settings, but that’s something you’ll learn in time, as you experience with different kinds of documents. Long story short, you must:
- Launch the app containing the document that has to be printed;
- Look for the print option – it should be available from either the Settings icon or the share icon;
- Select the Print option;
- Choose one of the AirPrint-enabled printers that you have at hand (be it Brother, Lexmark, Epson etc.);
- Choose how many copies you want to print;
- Hit the Print button and wait to see what you get!
If you still feel the need for some extra details, allow us to end this guide with a very specific example of how to print an email. Essentially, you must bring up that particular email and look for the Print option. You should be able to get to it after selecting the reply button, which will also give you access to the Print button at the bottom of your page. Use that one and wait for the wireless printer to do its job and transfer the document from iPhone Xs or iPhone Xs Max on paper!
