According to a report at Apple Insider, direct printing from the iPad may be a new feature included in the upcoming OS 4.0 update – which we’ll get a sneak preview of from Apple tomorrow.

Apple has hinted at the prospect for direct printing from the iPad in its support documents for iWork apps, suggesting the feature may appear as part of iPhone OS 4.0.

Support pages for iPad’s Pages, Keynote, and Numbers apps each note that "printing directly from iPad is not currently available," rather than simply stating that the apps do not print.

Hopefully any new direct printing feature would be accessible to most / all apps, not just the iWork suite.  I’ve tried a couple HP and similar wireless print solutions for iPhone in the past, but never had the right model of printer to give them a proper go.  I believe those guys in the image above are early beta testers for the new direct printing feature. :)

  1. This would be great. I've spent the last few days thinking about architectures for software that would let you print from the ipad using server software on your regular PC on your LAN, but would be nice if it were just easy and from Apple.
