Apple Inc. has released to developers a beta version of its AirPrint software that works with printers from Hewlett-Packard Co.
The software automatically locates printers and can send text and images to them without installing drivers or downloading additional software.
AirPrint is designed for the iPad, iPhone 4, iPhone 3GS and iPod touch. It works with current and future HP ePrint devices.
The package will be included in the free iOS 4.2 software to be released in November.
“We’re pleased to work with Apple to bring Apple’s AirPrint to our fall lineup of ePrint printers in time for the holiday shopping season,” Vyomesh Joshi, executive vice president of HP’s Imaging and Printing Group, said in a statement.
