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.
Full list of AirPrint compatible printers
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 Versalink C400DN : An A-List Printer
Since the PC Pro Awards A-List is made up of the very best products on the market, it came as no surprise when the Xerox Versalink C400DN made an appearance. A highly regarded feature of this model is the infallible colour quality alongside the fast print speeds whilst still maintaining a highly-detailed and true-to-life print, these were just a few of the reasons the C400DN scored an impressive 5 stars out of 5 in the PC Pro Awards. Also noted was, alongside the huge capabilities, the way that this printer had been specially designed to fit perfectly into the SMBs environment without disruption
What made this printer stand out?
In a market full of high-performing and robust printers, there were a range of features that made the Xerox Versalink C400DN stand out as being even better designed than the rest. Included in this were the plentiful array of mobile and cloud print options, making it easier than ever to print your documents hassle-free and without delay. Noted by the editors was also the ability to customise and expand the printer effortlessly with the help of ConnectKey Technology, all the while remaining within the budget of SMB’s. The extensive security options such as strict remote-access controls, print and hold features and PIN-secured prints ensure that your printer remains safe, always. Added to this was how the 5-inch Colour Touchscreen provided even greater ease of use by having four ready-to-use ConnectKey apps pre-installed to provide easy access to printer settings, job status and printing from USB devices.
Buyers Lab PaceSetter Awards
Buyers Lab (BLI) is an internationally recognised resource for the document imaging industry's unbiased and reliable information. The printers who reach and exceed the BLI's high standards receive these awards as a testimony to their incredible capabilities, through extensive questionnaires, in depth interviews and a proprietary rating scale.
In 2017 Xerox came out with their most finely tuned, and most solution capable range of printers yet; the Versalink Series, capable enough to receive three prestigious BLI PaceSetter Awards.
Leading Document Security
Xerox have received the BLI PaceSetter Award in the Document Security category for their new Versalink Series for numerous reasons including the outstanding hard drive security these printers boast, as well as the device integrity and intrusion-detection capabilities. They were deemed also as having top-tiered device management security features and exceptional hard drive security and job-protection features.
Best In Class in MFP Platforms and Apps
In this category, Xerox truly excelled in each and every aspect tested. Analysing Platform Technology, Developer Support, Market Approach, and App Portfolio, ConnectKey Technology was highlighted as an innovative tool invaluable for all business types. Emphasised was Xerox's approach to needs such as usability, mobility, security, and customisation and how the built in ConnectKey Technology provides apps for the Versalink Series to provide solutions for all of these needs.

Through testing, it became evident that these printers are designed for the realistic workplace, possessing brand adaptable mobile print applications and hardware compatibility. Added to this, this award recognised the support this range has for a wide variety of file formats and e-mail printing across the collection.
