OKI Data just released AirPrint in several of its black and white printers this week. Supported models include its B710, B720, B730, B721dn and B731dn monochrome single function printers. Apple AirPrint wireless printing support is enabled in these OKI Data printers via a firmware upgrade which you can download here from the OKI Data website. AirPrint lets iOS users print wirelessly from iPads, iPhones, and iPod touch devices to any of OKI’s B700 Series AirPrint-enabled printers.
Any customers who have already purchased a B710, B720 or B730 can download and update the firmware to include AirPrint functionality (see our link above). In addition, the firmware upgrade for OKI Data AirPrint printers is available if you own a B721dn or B731dn as well. For these printers, you can download the firmware from this link. The OKI website provides step-by-step instructions for downloading and installing the firmware upgrade for each of the compatible OKI Data AirPrint printers.
“By adding AirPrint wireless printing capability to an even greater number of devices within our broad product portfolio, OKI Data now offers enhanced options for our channel partners, resellers and end users, alike. With the demand for mobile printing increasing, OKI Data will continue to offer products and solutions to meet emerging needs and deliver greater efficiency within the workplace.”
