Let me make it a bit more clear. NO WIFI,
to do this just "Bluetooth" on AirPrint type of Printers
which there is a long list of them online. NO App the software comes in your iPhone, all ready,
NO printer software to download. What I am showing you here, is that you only need your iPhone and an AirPrint type Printer.
Here try this, just turn on your Apple iPhone also Bluetooth and go to your photos.
Click on any photo. Now LOOK at the lower LEFT (YOUR LOWER LEFT) Do you see the square box, with an arrow coming out of the top of the box? (IMAGE SHOWN BELOW)
Now pan down to PRINT (showing a printer) and click. Do you see a small box open showing you Printer------Select Printer? and the number of copies? select 1 copy. (or +) NOW click on "PRINTER" word on the left-side and the iPhone Bluetooth will search for the printer. But it has to be a printer that is capable of AirPrint.
Understand AirPrint is not new and today you can find printers of all kinds. But it must be AirPrint Capable.
You do not just printout Photos, you can now print anything out you have on your iPhone. Doc, Text Messages, Notes, PDF docs you have in BOOKS app. and many others. All your using to transfer is Bluetooth from iPhone to Printer.
