HP LaserJet Pro - Use an iOS mobile device to set up a wireless-capable printer on a wireless network


You can use an iOS mobile device such as an iPhone or iPad to set up a wireless-capable printer on a wireless network. Simply install the HP Smart app on the device and set up the printer's connection to the wireless network. Then connect the iOS mobile device to the same wireless network and send print jobs from the device.
The iOS operating system includes Apple Airprint®, a feature that provides wireless printing without the need to download or install print drivers.


Before you begin, make sure you have the following requirements:
  • An active Internet connection and a wireless network
  • The wireless network password or key (if required by your network)
  • An HP LaserJet Pro wireless-enabled printer that has been set up and turned on
  • An iPhone or iPad that is connected to the wireless network
