Scanning and emailing documents from your iPad has always been a hassle – the process always seemed to take longer than it needed to, and you had to tediously drag and drop files into an email or document reader. But with new iOS apps like Scanbot, that all changes!

What is AirPrint?

AirPrint is a feature of the iPad that allows you to print documents, photos, and other materials from your iPad. You can use AirPrint with any printer that supports printing from a digital device.

How to enable AirPrint on your iPad

If you have an iPad and use it for work, chances are good that you also use it for personal purposes. This means that you probably have prints of documents or photos that you want to email or print from your iPad. Unfortunately, Apple does not offer a built-in way to do this right out of the box. However, there is a workaround that can be enabled in just a few minutes.

First, open the Settings app on your iPad. From here, select “Print & Scan”. You will now see a list of devices connected to your iPad. In the section labelled “Printing”, tap on the plus symbol next to “AirPrint”. This will display a list of printers that are available to print to from your iPad. Tap on the printer that you want to use and then select “Share” from the menu that appears. Now, you will need to go back to your document or photo and select “Send To” from the toolbar at the top of the screen. Tap on “AirPrint” and then enter your AirPrint ID (which is typically found in the Sharing Options under System Preferences).

Finally, tap on
