AirPrint was introduced with the release of iOS 4.2 in 2010 to allow iOS devices the ability to print without having to worry about finding printer drivers. It’s a zero-config way to print from mobile devices (assuming you’re on the same Wi-Fi network as the printer, then it all just works) that has been adopted by every iteration (and modern printer) since its inception.

However, if you have that old crufty laser printer in your basement, chances are you can still make it work with AirPrint as long as it’s connected to a computer. In this tutorial, I’ll walk through how you can easily print in iOS 13 with or without an AirPrint-compatible printer.

The Wall Street Journal reported Tuesday that the White House plans to discuss the outlines of a second stimulus package — soon. And on Capitol Hill, Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell said Congress may decide whether to also begin work on a second financial rescue bill, though their final decision could take weeks.
