Interesting question. I would imagine that you would need the printer driver installed on the phone. That would, of course, allow you to print from that specific printer but what if you wanted to print from any arbitrary printer? Loading a bunch of arbitrary drivers would be lots of overhead and there could also be licensing issues involved. If there were a generic wifi print standard that vendors could/would adopt then maybe...?


I know nothing about iPhone programming but I can say that more and more printers are supporting direct PDF printing which means that if you can get the file to the printer it would simply print. This doesn't allow for paper tray select etc. but could work. Keep in mind that this isn't the best option for the home as direct PDF printing is typically only supported on workgroup/network printers and not always found on devices that you'd find in the home. If you could get a PDF to Postscript converter installed this might do the trick but I'm guessing running something like Ghostscript on an iPhone isn't really feasible!


There is new support for wireless printing in iOS 4.2.
