How to connect iPhone to Canon Printer with AirPrint

Many printers, including Canon, HP, Brother, and others, support AirPrint; a complete list is available from Apple and the printer manufacturer. AirPrint allows you to print content from an iOS device wirelessly.

You should connect your iPhone and Canon printer to the same Wi-Fi network. As a result, if you are within range of a Wi-Fi network, you can print whenever you want. The entire procedure is straightforward and quick. Continue reading to know how it works.

1. Use same Wi-Fi for iPhone and Printer

You can connect both devices to the same Wi-Fi network because the Canon printer supports AirPrint. After that, your iPhone will automatically locate and connect to the printer via AirPrint.

2. Choose the iPhone content for print

Open the image, document, or another file you want to print. You can find the print option by tapping the “Share” icon. Then, select the “Print” option and select the AirPrint-enabled printer.

3. Connect iPhone to Printer to Print

Select the number of copies you want to print and other options, such as which pages to print. Then, in the upper-right corner, tap “Print.” To preview the iPhone content, double-click the Home Button and select “Printer Center.”


Double-click the Home Button, enter Printer Center and tap Cancel Printing to cancel a print job. Furthermore, when you connect your iPhone to the printer, some printers display a screen, making it simple to print the files you need.
