5 Tips to Get the Most Out of the New iOS 13 Printing System
The new iOS 13 printing system has just been released, and most people are raving about how easy it makes the process of printing directly from your phone or tablet. With that said, though, it’s not exactly the easiest feature to take advantage of if you don’t know what you’re doing — so if you’re not sure how to get the most out of this new release, these five tips will help you get on your way in no time!
Open the settings
To get started, open your Settings app. Navigate to General > Photos & Camera and tap Photos and Camera. In this menu, turn on AirPrint Activation in the lower left-hand corner of the screen. From here, you can choose which features are available for printing. Once done, tap Done in the upper right-hand corner of the screen. Now that AirPrint is activated, all photos taken with your device camera will automatically be compatible with printers that support Apple’s new feature!
Choose Printing under General
Select a printer from your list and go to the settings app -In Settings, select General > Printers & then press + (iPhone) or + (iPad) -You’ll see a new Printer button with a + sign. Tap that. It will open up more printing options for you. One of those options is Choose what kind of paper. You can choose any kind you want here, including labels. And it’s not just the label side of things either; if you have label stock in your printer, it will automatically detect it. If you don’t have label stock in your printer but need to print on stickers, Apple has provided an additional option in this screen: Select Label Sticker Paper as the type of paper so that they show up as an option when you are browsing through your various sheets of sticker paper
Scroll down to Printer Options
In your Printer Options settings, you’ll have the option to decide how many copies you want in your print order. This is especially handy if you’re sending a lot of items at once and only need one copy or if you just need one at a time. You can also change this setting from automatically to manually. If you do so, you’ll be able to choose from any of the preset options for number of copies each time. The best part about all of these features?
No matter what you set up now, it will carry over into future orders! So if you usually order three copies but are going on vacation and won’t need anything until after you return, that’s no problem – as long as 3 is still your default. Your printer will keep printing with 3 until you adjust it again.
The other good news is that these changes are applied globally – to all printers across your device. So when someone prints from their iPhone, they’ll get the same great print quality no matter which printer they use!
Change your default printer
- Open Settings on your iPhone.
- Go to Printing and click Default Printer.
- Select Xerox Mobile Document Scanner. 2. Click Set.
- Return to the settings page and tap on Ink near your default printer setting in order to adjust ink quality settings if desired, before tapping Done.
Turn off automatic scaling
This is how you turn off automatic scaling:
Open Settings and tap General – Under Display & Brightness, find the toggle for Auto-Scale Apps (For This Display). Tap it to disable it. The next time you print from an app on your iPhone or iPad, select a printer and specify any print settings that are available. The app will then take these into account when printing.
