What is Apple AirPrint technology?
AirPrint is an Apple technology that helps you create full-quality printed output through WiFi connections without the need to download or install drivers.AirPrint is a feature in Apple Inc.’s macOS and iOS operating systems for printing without installing printer-specific drivers. Connection is via a wireless LAN, either directly to AirPrint-compatible printers, or to non-compatible shared printers by way of a computer running Microsoft Windows, Linux, or macOS.
AirPrint was originally intended for iOS devices and connected to a Wi-Fi access point where the printer is connected to.
Later with the introduction of AirPrint to the macOS desktop platform in 2012, Macs connected to the network via Ethernet connection could also print using the AirPrint protocol.
Recently, HP printers start to support the ePrint Wireless Direct AirPrint feature, which allows you to print from a wireless device directly
