Three existing printers get AirPrint compatibility with new firmware

Sometimes it takes certain manufacturers a long time to integrate support for iPhone and iOS features into the products they offer. This is the case with Canon and Apple AirPrint. AirPrint surfaced last year with the 4.2.1 update to iOS and Canon still has very few options for AirPrint native printing using its AIO printers. AirPrint allows iOS device users to print directly from the mobile device.

Using AirPrint, you need no drivers or software for printing documents, photos, web pages, and other stuff form the iPhone or iPad. Canon is finally updating some of its other wireless AIO printers to support AirPrint. The models getting AirPrint support include the PIXMA MG8220, MG6220 and MG5320 printers.

Canon also notes that AirPrint support will be featured on most of the printers that it launches from now on. AirPrint requires your iOS device to be running iOS version 4.2 or later to work. The printers will require a firmware update to get the new feature and the firmware is available for download on the models I mentioned above right now. HP already offers AirPrint on a number of its wireless printers.
