So, Uhm, Soon You’ll Be Able To Use AirPrint With 6 More Printers

We thought AirPrint would make us print again, thanks to the power of iOS 4.2 and printers shared through OS X or Windows. It turns out achieving stable driverless printing ain’t that easy even for Apple, and the engineers at Cupertino were forced to remove support for AirPrint on OS X 10.6.5. We’ve already heard this story.

Steve Jobs promises more is coming soon and a few alternative solutions to print via OS X have surfaced, but as it stands now AirPrint officially works only with 7 HP printers out of the box.

The good news is, HP is adding support for 6 more printers with a firmware update that will be issued on December 27th, Business Insider reports. Among the models that will support AirPrint:

  • LaserJet Pro M1536dnf Multifunction Printer
  • LaserJet Pro CM1415fn Color Multifunction Printer
  • LaserJet Pro CM1415fnw Color Multifunction Printer
  • LaserJet Pro CP1525n Color Printer
  • LaserJet Pro CP1525nw Color Printer

Happy now? No? Well, you can always ask Schiller. Seriously, he troubleshoots.
