Canon PIXMA AirPrint support

Many printer manufacturers have been adding AirPrint support recently, and another to join in is Canon. The company has announced that three of its all-in-one PIXMA printers now support Apple’s AirPrint. The three models are the MG8220, the MG6220, and the MG5320. Canon has posted more information regarding updating your PIXMA printer(s) in order to add the new support feature, as a firmware update may be required in some cases in order to be able to now use AirPrint.

Apple introduced AirPrint boasting support for numerous printers, but that number is sadly quite slim. Too many printers still don’t support this great feature that allows users to print from iOS directly to a networked printer. However, at least companies like Canon are making the effort to support AirPrint in their printers.

If you own a printer that doesn’t (yet) support AirPrint, there are quite a few available workarounds such as Printopia and FingerPrint. Or, if you’re one of the lucky ones who owns one of these PIXMA printers (or any other supported printer for that matter), enjoy the new ability to take advantage of what AirPrint has to offer.
