What is AirPrint?
Apple AirPrint allows full colour, top-quality printing from iOS devices such as iPhones and iPads directly from within many Apps available from the Apple App Store.
To take advantage of AirPrint, your compatible printer must be connected to the same wireless network as your iOS device or Mac computer.
AirPrint enables users to print wirelessly from within applications on Apple devices to AirPrint Compatible Printers connected to a wireless network. You can use your iPhone, iPod Touch or iPad to easily print via Airprint without the need to install drivers or configure the printer queue. Just tap 'print' and select your AirPrint compatible printer, and print!....It's that simple.
What You See is What You Print
If you can open it on your apple device, chances are you can print it with AirPrint and an AirPrint compatible printer. Airprint works with Safari, Mail, Photos, iWork, PDF's in iBooks and many third-party AirPrint compatible apps available from the app store.

There are also a wide variety of third-party apps available to enable wireless printing through Apple devices, even to machines that are not natively AirPrint compatible printers. By sharing a printer installed on an Apple Mac or Windows Pc over a wireless network any printer may be able to take advantage of the AirPrint features. (An additional third-party app may be required to be installed on the local machine)
*For full AirPrint support, a printer firmware upgrade may be required which is available directly from the relevant manufacturer website.

Xerox WorkCentre 3615 review: a lightning fast mono laser printer
The Xerox WorkCentre 3615 was released at the same time as its younger brother the Phaser 3610 and is intended to be an upscale version that produces many of the same results with a few vital additional features. See all mono printer reviews.
Like the Phaser 3610, the WorkCentre 3615 is a mono laser printer for small to medium size businesses but it also includes full multifunction capabilities which add fax, scan and copy to the basic print mode. See also Best Printer 2013.
The unit feels rugged and strong, weighing in at 21.5 kg and occupying a roughly square space of 495 x 492 mm. Styled in the trademark Xerox two-tone blue and cream, there are plenty of options here for expanding your input volume to suit company demands. There is one flimsy part of the machine, however, which is the front panel that has to be tugged quite smartly to reveal the toner cartridge.
A 60-sheet Auto Document Feeder sits on the top, a drop-down multipurpose tray that holds a further 150 sheets is built into the front and the main input try in the base contains 550 sheets. As with the Phaser 3610, this can be expanded with a further three trays to make 2,350 sheets in total.
Auto duplex operation comes as standard with both normal printing and via the ADF. Print functions are handled by the exceptionally bright and clear to follow colour touch screen and connectivity can be established via USB 2.0, Ethernet or (optional) Wi-Fi.
The WorkCentre 3615 has an almost identical speed ratio to the Phaser 3610, averaging 45 ppm for single sheets and 24 ppm for duplex, which are some of the fastest rates in this class. Graphics and images manage to avoid the exaggeratedly dark tones that bedevil many MFPs of this type and scanned images - which are saved as JPEGs, TIFFs and PDFs to PC folders, network files or USB memory sticks - retain authentic colours and vibrancy.
The ink quality on black text documents is deep and distinct and depending on your required print volumes, toner cartridges come in three versions: Standard (5900 pages at 2.47p per page), High (14,100 pages at 1.77p per page) and Extra High (25,300 pages at 1.32p per page).
