Print Wirelessly with Brother and Apple

— August 13, 2014

RuggedJet 4 Wi-Fi handheld receipt and label printers from Brother Solutions Inc. now support Apple AirPrint wireless technology. This will enable users to wirelessly print from their iPad, iPhone and iPod touch devices directly to RuggedJet 4 printers.

AirPrint compatibility allows instant printing without the need to download or install drivers or interfaces—making the thermal printer easier to use. In Addition, all existing RuggedJet 4 Wi-Fi printers are backward compatible with AirPrint via a free firmware update available from Brother.

"We are pleased to expand on our relationship with Apple—from incorporating AirPrint technology in laser and inkjet office printers and now to mobile printers. This is a significant advancement for the mobile printing market, where so many mobile workers are equipped with iPhone and iPad today. Now they can print receipts and labels quickly, right out-of-the-box, from their Apple iOS device and directly to the mobile printer," Raul G. Palacios, senior product manager at Brother Mobile Solutions.

With AirPrint support built in, application developers do not have to spend time programming the printers or dealing with installation and set-up. Businesses and government agencies benefit as well by gaining device flexibility and the agility to future-proof their technology investments.

The mobile printers are designed for high-speed, high-res thermal printing of 2-inch to 4-inch documents, labels and receipts from convenient drop-in rolls. They are compact, easy to use and maintain and carry a 2-year "bumper-to-bumper" warranty.

Ruggedly constructed with 6-foot drop protection and IP54 certification to withstand dust and moisture, the RuggedJet 4 mobile printers are ideal for use in the following industries: public safety, field service, delivery route accounting, manufacturing & warehousing, and retail point-of-sale (POS).
