As of iOS 11, Apple has finally given users the ability to print double-sided on their iPad and iPhone. This is a great feature for those who need to save paper or just want to be more eco-friendly. Unfortunately, not all printers are created equal and some do not have the ability to print double-sided. The HP 7612 is one such printer.
There are a few ways to get around this limitation and we will explore them in this article.
METHOD 1: USE A THIRD-PARTY APP
The first method is to use a third-party app that supports printing double-sided. One such app is PrintCentral Pro. This app allows you to print from your iPad or iPhone to any printer that supports AirPrint.
To use this app, simply download and install it on your device. Once installed, open the app and select the document or file you want to print. Then, tap the share button and select PrintCentral Pro as the printer.
On the next screen, select your printer from the list and make sure the duplex (double-sided) printing option is enabled. Then, simply tap the print button and your document will start printing double-sided.
METHOD 2: USE A MAC OR PC
If you don’t want to use a third-party app, you can also use a Mac or PC to print double-sided. To do this, you’ll need to first connect your iPad or iPhone to your computer using a USB cable.
Once connected, open the document or file you want to print in the corresponding app on your computer. For example, if you’re trying to print a PDF, you would open it in Adobe Acrobat Reader.
Once the document is open, go to the File menu and select Print. In the print dialog box that appears, make sure your printer is selected and then click on the Properties or Preferences button. This will open your printer’s settings.
If you are using an iPad or iPhone and are unable to print double sided, there may be a problem with the printer driver. This can happen if you have recently updated your iOS device, as the new operating system may not be compatible with the existing printer driver. To resolve this issue, you will need to uninstall the old printer driver and then install the new one.
UNINSTALLING THE OLD PRINTER DRIVER
1. On your iPad or iPhone, go to Settings > Printers & Scanners.
2. Select the printer that you want to remove, and then tap Delete Printer.
3. Confirm that you want to delete the printer by tapping Delete.
INSTALLING THE NEW PRINTER DRIVER
1. Download the new printer driver from the manufacturer’s website.
2. On your iPad or iPhone, go to Settings > Printers & Scanners.
3. Tap Add Printer or Scanner.
4. If prompted, select the printer that you want to add, and then tap Add.
5. Follow the on-screen instructions to complete the installation.
