2. How do I connect my iPad to my Canon wireless printer?

-To turn on your printer, connect the printer’s power adapter to an electrical outlet and push the printer’s power button.
-Because we’re using AirPrint to connect the iPad to the printer, you’ll need to turn off the printer’s Bluetooth and any other wire connections.

Then, to print all of your documents and photographs using AirPrint, simply follow the steps below:
-Open the document or photograph you want to print using the Canon Printer on your iPad.
