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.

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.

Analysing Platform Technology, Developer Support, Market Approach, and App Portfolio, ConnectKey Technology was highlighted as an innovative tool invaluable for all business types.
