Are you trying to print something from your iPhone but can’t find your printer? Don’t worry – it’s actually quite a common problem. But don’t worry, because, in this blog post, we will give you some simple tips to help you find your printer and get it connected to your iPhone.

First, let’s take a look at why you may not be able to find your printer on your iPhone. The most common reason for this is that the printer is not connected properly to the same network as the iPhone. This could be due to a variety of reasons, such as a weak wireless signal, incorrect settings, or an outdated software version.

To solve this issue, you should first check that the printer has its wireless connection switched on and that it is connected to the same network as your iPhone. You should also check that both devices are running the latest software version available. Additionally, if there is a light next to a Wireless icon or button on the printer, make sure that it is on – if it blinks or is off then it means that the printer is disconnected from the network.

Once these basics are checked and confirmed, you can then follow these simple steps:
1. Go to Settings > Hardware > Printers > Create Printer Station
2. Enter a name for the Printer Station
3. Tap Printer then select your printer
4. Connect AirPrint Printer and choose your printer
5. Check again if all devices are still connected and on the same network

Once all these steps have been followed correctly, you should now be able to find and use your printer with your iPhone! We hope this blog post has been helpful in solving any issues related to finding or connecting printers with iPhones – Happy printing!

Connecting an iPhone to a Printer

To get your iPhone to recognize your printer, you’ll need to create a Printer Station. To do this, open the Settings app and navigate to Hardware > Printers > Create Printer Station.

Once your iPhone has successfully connected to your printer, it should be available for printing.

Troubleshooting an iPhone Printer Connection Issue

No Printer Found on your iPhone can happen due to a few factors. Firstly, it could be because the printer and your iPhone are not connected to the same network. Make sure that both your iPhone and the printer are connected to the same Wi-Fi network.

Secondly, make sure that your printer’s wireless connection is switched on and that it is running the latest software. Additionally, ensure that Airplane mode is not activated on your iOS device.

If you have checked all of these factors and still see ‘No Printer Found’, try restarting both devices or reinstalling any relevant drivers or print apps. If this does not work, contact Apple Support for further assistance.

Troubleshooting Printer Detection Issues on Mobile Devices

It’s possible that your phone isn’t detecting your printer because the printer is not connected to the same network as your phone. To ensure that your printer and phone are on the same network, make sure that your wireless signal is turned on and that both devices are connected to the same Wi-Fi network. Additionally, if your printer has a light next to a Wireless icon or button, make sure that the light is turned on. If it is off or blinking, it means that the printer is disconnected from the network.

Troubleshooting Bluetooth Printer Connection Issues

It is possible that your phone is not finding your Bluetooth printer because the printer’s Bluetooth may not be turned on or enabled. Additionally, the device’s Bluetooth may need to be set to the discoverable mode in order for your phone to find it. It is also possible that the printer is already paired with another device and needs to be unpaired first before it can be found and paired with a new device. Finally, if you are still unable to find the printer, it could be due to distance limitations of the Bluetooth connection as some devices have a limited range.


In conclusion, setting up a printer with your iOS device is relatively simple and straightforward. All you need to do is make sure that the printer has its wireless connection switched on, that all devices are on the same network, and that both the iPhone/iPad and printer are running the latest software. Once these steps have been completed, you can easily connect an AirPrint printer to your iOS device. With this setup complete, you can now print documents directly from your iOS device with ease.
