For Seniors: Print a Web Page from Your iPhone 4S

You can print web content from your iPhone 4S if you have a wireless printer that supports Apple’s AirPrint technology (Hewlett-Packard is the only manufacturer that makes these at present). You can print web content using a wireless connection.


  1. With Safari open and the site you want to print displayed, tap the Menu button.

  2. On the menu that appears, tap Print.

  3. In the Printer Options dialog that appears, tap Select Printer. In the list of printers that appears, tap the name of your wireless printer.


  4. Tap either the plus or minus button in the Copy field to adjust the number of copies to print.

  5. Tap Print to print the displayed page.

The Mac applications Printopia and AirPrint Activator 2 make any shared or network printer on your home network visible to your iPhone. Printopia has more features, but is more expensive, while AirPrint Activator is free.

If you don’t have an AirPrint–compatible wireless printer or don’t wish to use an app to help you print wirelessly, just e-mail a link to the web page to yourself, open the link on your computer, and print from there.
