How to Print From iPad to Wireless Printer Using iCloud

Apple’s iCloud synchronizes files between your computers, making it possible for you to edit and share your iWork documents whether you’re on your iPhone, iPad or desktop. The option to print is among these sharing options, and is integrated into all of the iWork apps. By default, printing is handled by AirPrint on your iPad. As long as your wireless printer is compatible with AirPrint, it'll automatically establish a connection with your iOS device.

Step

Turn on your AirPrint-enabled printer and make sure it's connected to your Wi-Fi network.

Step

Open "Settings" on your iPad and confirm that it’s connected to your Wi-Fi.

Step

Open the iWork application hosting the document you want to print. For instance, if your iCloud document is a word-processing file, open Pages.

Step

Open the document from the iWork start screen.

Step

Tap the gear icon in the toolbar and select “Share and Print.”

Step

Select your printer’s name and tap the “Print” button.
