Share This:

The ability to print documents and photos from your iPhone is an incredibly useful feature, but sometimes the print jobs can get stuck in the queue. If this has happened to you, don’t worry – we’ve got your back! In this post, we’ll explain how to view and manage your iPhone print queue.

First things first, you’ll need to create a printer station on your iPhone. To do this, open the Settings app and tap “Hardware”, then “Printers” and then “Create Printer Station”. Enter a name for your printer station and then select a printer from the list. Once you have chosen a printer, click “Connect AirPrint Printer” and choose your device.

Once your printer station is set up, you can view the print queue by opening the Settings app again and selecting “Bluetooth & devices” followed by “Printers & scanners”. You should see a list of available printers; select yours and then click “Open print queue” to view what is currently printing or waiting in line to be printed.

If you find that jobs are getting stuck in the queue for no apparent reason, it might be because you need to update your printer driver. If you recently installed a Windows update on your computer, it is worth checking if there are any available device driver updates too.

By using these simple steps, you should now be able to easily manage your iPhone print queue with no problems at all!

Accessing Printer Settings on an iPhone

Once that is done, you’ll be able to access all of the printer settings associated with your chosen printer from this screen.

Finding Queued Print Jobs

Here you’ll see a list of printers that are connected to your computer. Select your printer and then choose Open Print Queue.

Troubleshooting Issues with Printing from an iPhone to a Wireless Printer

Unfortunately, not all wireless printers are compatible with iPhones and the iOS version you’re using. To print from your iPhone, you need an AirPrint-enabled printer that supports Apple’s driverless printing feature. Without this compatibility, your iPhone won’t be able to connect to the printer and send a print job. To check if your printer is compatible with AirPrint, you can visit Apple’s support page for more information.

Printing Directly From an iPhone to a Printer

Yes, you can print from an iPhone directly to a printer. To do so, you will need a printer that is compatible with AirPrint technology. AirPrint allows you to easily connect your iPhone to a compatible printer over Wi-Fi. Once connected, you can print directly from your iPhone without the need for additional software or drivers. If your printer isn’t compatible with AirPrint, you can still print from your iPhone by downloading the printer’s app on an iPhone or iPad, or by connecting your devices with a USB cable and adapter.

Troubleshooting Printer Queue Issues

There could be several reasons why your documents may be staying in the queue and not printing. It could be due to a lack of available printer or computer memory, or because the printer is too busy processing other documents. Additionally, your printer’s settings may be preventing it from printing certain documents. To troubleshoot this issue, try restarting your connected devices and then try to print again. If the problem persists, you may need to upgrade your printer to a more robust system that can handle a higher volume of documents.


In conclusion, printing from your iPhone is a breeze. With AirPrint, you can print wirelessly from any iOS device to any compatible printer. To make sure everything runs smoothly, it is important to create a printer station and connect your printer with AirPrint. Additionally, it is helpful to view the print queue in Windows to ensure that your jobs are not stuck in the queue due to outdated drivers or other issues. With these steps, you can ensure that you always have successful printing experiences with your iPhone.
