Apple AirPrint With Big Sur
As with all Apple devices, the most efficient way to print is through Apple AirPrint. There’s no need for drivers, just wireless connectivity. All of the AirPrint supported printers we stock are available here.
Please be aware. As simple as Apple AirPrint is to use does come at a cost. Not all printer driver features are available, just the basics. Such as:
- Setting paper sizes
- Choosing what paper is in the printer
- What size to print (It will default to the paper size in the printer)
A quick, simple solution to printing. Without the in-depth features of external drivers.
The ideal solution though would be a fully Big Sur compatible printer.
