AirPrint does not work after IOS 17 upgrade

To get your iPhone to recognize your wireless printer, follow these steps:

  • Ensure your printer is AirPrint-enabled. Check your printer’s specifications or Apple’s official support page for AirPrint compatibility.
  • Connect your iPhone and printer to the same Wi-Fi network. This is crucial for AirPrint to work.
  • Disable any VPN connections on your iPhone as they can interfere with network communication. Navigate to Settings > General > VPN & Device Management to turn it off.
  • Turn off the Private Wi-Fi Address feature if it’s enabled. Go to Settings > Wi-Fi, tap the information (i) button next to your network, and switch off Private Wi-Fi Address.
  • If your printer supports Wi-Fi Direct, you can connect your iPhone directly to the printer without a Wi-Fi network. Check your printer’s manual for instructions.
  • For non-AirPrint printers, download the printer’s official app from the App Store and follow the app’s instructions to set up a connection.
  • If issues persist, restart both your iPhone and printer to reset the network connection.

Remember, your iPhone and the printer must be on the same network, and sometimes printers may require a firmware update to ensure compatibility with the latest versions of iOS. If you continue to experience issues, consult the printer’s user manual or contact the manufacturer’s customer support for assistance.
