Are you an iPhone user trying to figure out how to print from Safari? You're in luck – it's actually really easy. With the recent iOS 13 and iPadOS update, Apple moved the Print function to the Actions list that sits below the rows of icons. In this article, we'll walk you through the simple steps of printing a webpage from your iPhone using AirPrint.
First off, make sure your printer is AirPrint-enabled. Most newer models are, so check your printer model or its documentation if you're not sure.
Next, open the app that you want to print from and locate the Print or Actions button. It should be located within the app's Share Sheet or Action Sheet. Scroll down and tap on it.
From here, select No Printer Selected and choose an AirPrint-enabled printer – if you have multiple printers set up on your network, they will all appear here for selection. Some options may appear at this stage depending on your printer model – make sure to check them out as some may affect how your document is printed.
If everything looks good, select Print at the top right corner of the page and wait for your document to be printed!

Troubleshooting the Lack of Print Option on Safari on iPhone
Since the iOS 13 and iPadOS update, Apple moved the print function to the actions list that sits below the rows of icons in the share sheet. To access this option on Safari, open a web page and tap on the ‘share' icon at the bottom of your screen. Scroll down through the options until you see ‘Print'. Tap on it and select your printer from the list. You can also customize your print settings before printing out your document.
Troubleshooting iPhone Printing Issues
If your iPhone isn't giving you a print option, it may be because the app you're using doesn't support AirPrint. AirPrint is Apple's wireless printing solution that allows you to print from an iOS device without having to install additional software. If the app you're using doesn't support AirPrint, then you won't be able to print from your iPhone. To check if the app supports AirPrint, look at its User Guide or Help section. If it does, then make sure your printer is AirPrint-enabled and connected to the same network as your iPhone before attempting to print.
Printing from an iPhone Without AirPrint
Printing from your iPhone without AirPrint is an easy process. First, you'll need to download a printer app that is compatible with your device. Next, turn on Wi-Fi for both your printer and iPhone. After that, go to the Settings menu on your phone or tablet and select Wi-Fi. Locate your printer under OTHER NETWORKS and tap on it. Now you can pull up the document, image, or webpage you want to print, then hit the Share icon. You should be able to select the printer app from the list of options, and then press Print to start the printing process.
Printing a PDF from Safari on iPhone
To print a PDF from Safari on your iPhone, you'll need to first save the file as a PDF. To do this, open Safari and jump to the website you'd like to save. Tap the Share button at the bottom of your screen. At the top of the Share Sheet, tap Options > and choose PDF instead of Automatic, then tap Done. Now you can select Copy to PDF Expert to save the entire webpage as a PDF.
Once you have your file saved as a PDF, you can use AirPrint to print it out. Make sure your printer is compatible with AirPrint and is connected to the same Wi-Fi network as your iPhone. Then open up your saved PDF in an app like Files or Adobe Acrobat Reader and select Print from the options menu. Select your printer from the list of available printers and hit Print again to complete the process.
