Apple Files Driverless Printer For IPads and IPhones




Apple seems to makes our life easier, month by month - they have recently filed patents for methods of driverless printing from documents held on iPhones and iPads. Rumour has it that one method relies on the printer obtaining the information from the Cloud - and the other will obtain all the information required straight from the printer.

What an excellent printing development this would be; the eternal trauma of finding the correct driver, and the often never filled promise of simply plugging in and printing which never seems to go that way.  Apple say the document would have to be in the correct format to print, but this would happen without the user needing any knowhow. No specific date has been set when this highly productive set up may be rolled out and used commercially, but no doubt excitement is building already.
