Questions tagged [airprint]

AirPrint is a brand-name owned by Apple which describes a proprietary technology to make printers easily discoverable and useable by iOS clients. Printer vendors can go through a certification process with Apple to get their devices tagged as AirPrint-compatible. AirPrint technology bases itself on 4 major corner stones: mDNS, DNS-SD, IPP and an Apple-specific PDL (Page Description Language) called URF.
