Apple announced the release of its AirPrint Wireless Beta for iPad, iPhone and iPod Touch devices. The AirPrint Wireless Beta will only be available to Apple iOS Developer Program members and will be included in the next free iOS 4.2 software update which is scheduled for November.
If you are not sure what AirPrint does, it is Apple’s powerful new printing architecture that matches the simplicity of iOS—no set up, no configuration, no printer drivers and no software to download. It has the ability to automatically detect printers on the near local networks, and print text, photos and graphics on them via WiFi connectivity. The ePrint enabled printers by Hewlett Packard will be the first devices that will support “printing detect” on the iOS devices by Apple.
