Most people capture their favorite memories using their iPhone camera because it’s the easiest way to take a picture wherever you go. Fortunately, even when you take pictures or store documents on your phone, you can use Wi-Fi to print them.

To print from your iPhone to your Epson printer, you’ll need to connect both devices to the same Wi-Fi network and download the Epson iPrint app.

Please continue reading to learn how to print from your iPhone to your Epson printer so you can print off any documents or photos you need without a computer.

Connect Your Devices to the Same Wi-Fi Network

Check the Wi-Fi connection for your iPhone and your Epson printer to ensure they’re connected to the same Wi-Fi. For example, some people have trouble printing from their iPhones because they don’t realize they’re using mobile data instead of Wi-Fi.

Connecting your printer to your Wi-Fi will be the most manual portion of the print job you’ll have to complete.

Every other task you need to do after connecting your Wi-Fi can be completed from your iPhone, so you won’t have to stay in the same room as your printer.

Follow the steps below to connect your Epson printer to a Wi-Fi network.

  1. Use the control panel on your printer and select the home button.
  2. Find the Wi-Fi signal button on the screen and select that.
  3. Select the name of your Wi-Fi when it appears on the screen and manually enter your password.
  4. Once you’re positive you’ve entered the correct password, press OK.

If you have trouble connecting your Epson printer to a Wi-Fi network, you’ll have to follow some troubleshooting methods to resolve the problem. Otherwise, you can proceed with the printing process.

You might need to restart or unplug your printer if you have any connectivity issues. Or check your Wi-Fi to ensure there’s no Internet disconnection.

If you’ve gone through all of the troubleshooting methods you can think of, you’ll need to contact your Internet company or Epson for further assistance.

Download the Epson iPrint App Onto Your iPhone

The easiest way to print documents or photos from your iPhone is by installing the Epson iPrint application.

This application will allow you to print documents and photos from any room inside your house, even if you’re nowhere near the printer.

Follow the steps below to download the Epson iPrint app onto your iPhone.

  1. Open the App Store from your home screen.
  2. Search for “Epson iPrint.”
  3. Find the application with a logo with a blue background and a white printer.
  4. Download the application and wait a few minutes for the installation to finish.

Before you print anything from your iPhone, you should double-check to ensure you’ve loaded your printer with paper.

Fortunately, you can check your ink and paper levels on the application, so you don’t have to stop what you’re doing and check manually unless you’ve run out.

Select Documents You Want to Print

After you set up your application and your Wi-Fi connections, you’re ready to print your photos and documents directly from your iPhone.

If you’re printing a photo, you’ll want to go into your gallery and find that photo. Then, tap the photo and select print so that it will send to your Epson printer.

If you want to print a document like a school paper or pay stub, you’ll have to enter the application hosting the document you want to print.

For example, when you want to print a pay stub, you’ll have to enter your workplace’s application and print the pay stub from there.

Alternatively, if you’re printing a Word document, you’ll have to either use a PDF of your Word document or download the Microsoft app to print.

You can also print directly from the iPrint app by opening the application and selecting the documents or photos you want to print. Then, you can either select the documents from cloud storage or directly from your iPhone’s hard drive.

This application will let you print photos or documents online or from your phone storage, so you don’t have to publish them before printing.

Conclusion

You can print any photos or documents you want if your iPhone has the same Wi-Fi connection as your printer. This means you don’t need to stop what you’re doing or leave the room if you want to print something off.

If you’re unsure how much paper or ink you have, you can check your application, and the print app will tell you. So, if you don’t have enough ink or paper, you’ll have to manually refill it before you print the documents or photos you want.
