Why won't Apple support printing to mobile 3 rd party printers

Why won't Apple support printing to mobile 3 rd party printers

It's up to the printer manufacturer to provide an app for printing from. Many do, and any support AirPrint which is what iOS devices use for printing.
It's not Apple's job to create printer drivers for every third party printer on the market. Printer manufacturers provide drivers with their products.

  • Why won`t apple support siri on iphone 4 ?

    Why won't apple support siri on iphone 4 ?

    We are just users like you. So we can't answer that question. However, there are hundreds of posts about it, so a search of the forum might be enlightening.
    The iPhone 4 is four generations out of date. Have you noticed that when any company releases a new product or version of a product it has features that previous versions did not? If it didn't then what would be the point of coming out with a new version?

  • Why won't Apple support Flash?

    I posted this same question on an Adobe Flash forum and the answer I got was that Apple has to approve Flash for its operating system.
    If this is true, why won't Apple do this? Not supporting it means we, the customers, lose out on a great deal of internet content--which we simply can't view in the Safari mobile browser.

    As a non-techie user, this is seeming like a chicken-and-egg sort of thing: the Apple people point to Adobe. Adobe people point the finger at Apple.
    In either case, I and other users seem to be on the loosing end of things. 
    David.
    Please show us where we might see a copy of the Adobe Flash Player for IOS then, and we will know who's the chicken, and who's the egg.

  • TS1702 Why won't apple support my 1st edition iPad any longer. Apart from greed?

    Why will apple no longer support my iPad 1.
    I am no longer able to read magazines I have subscribed to because the app now needs iOS 6.
    And apple won't let me upgrade my software.
    Rip off I thinks.

    Neither Apple (nor any other company) will support a product forever. The iPad one is, by technology standards, obsolete. It has nothing to do with corporate greed - unless you define greed as making a profit.
    Your iPad still works, apparently. If you wish additional functionality, buy a new one - it is your money and decision.

  • Why won't apple support the charging cable I bought?

    I bought a cheaper charging cable online. It worked just fine before the ios7 upgrade. Now the software won't let the cable charge my phone because I didn't pay apple $30 for it. This is ridiculous and the opposite of why I was an apple fan before. Not to mention how overpriced the apple cable is. Not cool.

    Apple has no obligation to support someone else's product. Why you would expect that is beyond understanding.

  • Why won't Apple support "text blocking for teens while driving"?

    I was watching the Today show and they did a spot on teens and texting.  Did you know that 18 teens die PER DAY because of texting?  Fortunately, there are many products out there that can block texting and phone calls (except 911) while the car is moving.  Unfortunately, Apple will not support any of these products.  Why?  Are they not concerned about the safety of our teens?

    This is a user-to-user forum. You're not actually addressing Apple here. Submit your feedback using the Feedback page:
    http://www.apple.com/feedback
    You might also want to contact your carrier and have them block text messaging on your teenagers' phones if they have demostrated they can't use texting responsibly.
    Best of luck.

  • I have firefox 10.0.2 installed but everytime I open up firefox I get a message that says I am not currently using this version and I need to update to the latest version and why won't firefox support printing mac coupons

    my firefox info shows that I am using 10.0.2 but I keep getting a repeated message when I open it saying I'm not using the most recent version.
    Even tho the mac coupon printer says firefox supports this install it doesn't allow me to print it.

    Hi cleopt,
    You may see that message below the Google search box on www.google.com/firefox which is the old Firefox default home page. That page is no longer being maintained by Google.
    You should try changing your home page to:
    about:home
    If you don't know how to change the home page, you should take a look at the Knowledge Base article [[How to set the home page]].
    Hopefully this helps

  • Why won't Apple support iBooks on Mac

  • Why won't Apple Mobile Device Support install with itunes setup??

    Why won't Apple Mobile Device Support install with itunes setup?? I keep trying to reinstall, and installs everything but Apple Mobile Device Support. How come. will someone please help me?? I updated windows, and thoroughly removed everything before i reinstalled itunes. I don't know why it's Apple Mobile Device Support isn't going on there. HELP! Is there anyway i can just download and install Apple Mobile Device Support by itself???!

    For general advice see Troubleshooting issues with iTunes for Windows updates.
    The steps in the second box are a guide to removing everything related to iTunes and then rebuilding it which is often a good starting point unless the symptoms indicate a more specific approach. Review the other boxes and the list of support documents further down the page in case one of them applies.
    Your library should be unaffected by these steps but there is backup and recovery advice elsewhere in the user tip.
    The section Install missing components has advice on breaking down the iTunes installer into the individual .msi files which might prove useful if a component such as Apple Mobile Device Support won't install normally.

  • TS3274 why won't my ipad print?

    Why won't my ipad print ?

    Hello Karwen,
    Thanks for using Apple Support Communities.
    For more information on this, take a look at:
    AirPrint Basics
    http://support.apple.com/kb/HT4356
    Has power and is turned on. If it has power, turn the printer off and then on again to see if that resolves the issue.
    Is connected to the same Wi-Fi network as the iOS device.
    Has the latest firmware version installed.
    Has paper with enough ink or toner installed.
    Is free of any errors displayed on the printer's control panel.
    Best of luck,
    Mario

    About AirPlay and Airplay Mirroring
    AirPlay Mirroring requires a second-generation Apple TV or later, and is supported on the following Mac models: iMac (Mid 2011 or newer), Mac mini (Mid 2011 or newer), MacBook Air (Mid 2011 or newer), and MacBook Pro (Early 2011 or newer). For non-qualifying Macs you can try using Air Parrot.

    Thanks to the $15 Beamer, AirPlay streaming is still possible on Macs  that do not support Airplay and mirroring.
    Another solution is the Air Parrot.

  • Why won't my iMac print consistantly to my compatible HP 6500A? I've checked for updates and downloaded the lasted software...still can't print. All my other Mac devices find the printer but the iMac is hit and miss. I'm operating the Mac OS X Lion 10.7.

    Why won't my iMac print consistantly to my compatible HP 6500A? I've checked for updates and downloaded the lasted software...still can't print. All my other Mac devices find the printer but the iMac is hit and miss. I'm operating the Mac OS X Lion 10.7.

    When you say hit and miss do you mean sometimes you print a whole document with no problems, or do you mean each document has problems? This is from HP's website for your printer:
    Your sig says 10.6.7 but your message says 10.7. So if it's really Lion, this printer isn't officially supported. Elsewhere on HP's site it says updated drivers will be available on your Mac via Software Update. Have you run that recently?

  • Why won't Apple admit the problem with 6th generation nano power button?

    The power (sleep) button on the 6th generation nano is obviously faulty and poorly designed. Why won't Apple step up and make it right and issue a recall to fix or solve the issue so many people are having? Apple, do you hear us? Make it right! You know it's wrong! If a power button fails after a couple of years, that's a sad design. Shame on you!

    No, they don't hear you posting here. My button is working fine after 3 years.
    This is primarily a user-to-user technical support site. You've wasted your time here.
    Go down to Contact Us at the bottom right, get Apple's address and right them a letter.

  • Why won't Apple show in my Common files?

    Why won't Apple show up in my common files when I try to update my Iphone

    I assume Canon 70D came after Lr4 was no longer being fitted with new camera support (i.e. when Lr5 was released).
    (feel free to double-check that assumption - if wrong, then forget the rest of this post..).
    Remedies:
    * upgrade to Lr5, or
    * convert to DNG (using free Adobe Converter).

  • Why won't apple allow current "AppleCare" holders upgrade to "AppleCare "? Doesn't this seem unfair for such a giant in the tech industry to not offer such an opportunity?

    Why won't apple allow current "AppleCare" holders upgrade to "AppleCare "? Doesn't this seem unfair for such a giant in the tech industry to not offer such an opportunity?

    Sorry - not understanding. What do you mean by "upgrade"? When you purchase an Apple Product, you get AppleCare automatically - 90 Days of Telephone Support, and a 1-Year Warranty.
    You can then purchase an AppleCare Protection Plan for Mac, iPod, and Apple TV, or AppleCare+ for iPad or iPhone.
    AppleCare Protection Protection Plans can be purchased any time within the 1-year warranty period.
    Apple+ must be purchased within 30 days of purchase.
    AppleCare Protection Plan extends the warranty to 3 years for Macs, and to 2 years for Apple TV and iPod.
    AppleCare+ extends the warranty to 2 years for iPad and iPhone.
    There is no "upgrade"....You either purchase the extened warranty protection plan or you don't. And unlike most extended warranty plans, you are NOT required to purchase it at the time you purchase your Apple product.
    What's the beef here?
