Apple to Unveil Wireless Printing Technology This November

September 25, 2010 | by

Printing Media may be having a hard time fighting against Online Media but as far as printing your personal and official

documents are concerned the biz is running high.

HP launched an advanced futuristic bleeding edge all-in-one that will print as well as compose recently. It even has a vividly colored display. Apple decided to take the next turn. Apple declared that it is finally giving away a beta version of its AirPrint wireless printing for iPad, iPhone and iPod touch to members of Apple’s iOS developer program amidst a lot of controversies.

According to Apple officials, a software update awaits their devices this fall. This update will not only get the better of the devices but also add a brand new feature. Reportedly, post November all the popular mobile devices from the house of Apple will support Wireless Printing Technology. Apparently, the iPad, iPhone and iPod Touch will under-go this update. It will enable users to print photos, documents, or graphics without wiring their gadget to some printing device.

A test version to the upcoming release of iOS 4.2 update was unleeashed to the developers team on Wednesday and that included the AirPrint feature that is supposed to automatically identify Wi-Fi enabled printers on local networks and connects.

Apple senior vice president of worldwide product marketing Philip Schiller reported to the press that,

iPad, iPhone and iPod touch users can simply tap to print their documents or photos wirelessly. AirPrint 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.

HP and Apple are working hand on hand in this project as both will be mutually benefitted. HP executive vice president,Imaging and Printing Group, Vyomesh Joshi, said in an interview,

We’re pleased to work with Apple to bring Apple’s AirPrint to our fall lineup of ePrint printers in time for the holiday shopping season, Making it easy for our customers to print anytime, anywhere, is a key priority for HP. iPad, iPhone and iPod touch customers are going to love how easy it is to print using our new range of ePrint printers, creating high-quality printed pages in an instant.

In recent times Apple has been facing lot of arguments and criticisms and Steve Jobs addressed this first and foremostly by declaring that Apple is not perfect. The iPhone has been facing signal transmission issues while the iPad faced pressure when people claimed that it lacked proper port support for the printing devices. Apple’s take on this complaint resulted in the announcement to unleash the update that will facilitate its users to print without wires. Now that’s a pretty nice way to handle the mob. Totally eradicating the issue and then streaming down the traffic in altogether a new direction towards a new horizon. What do you think?
