Sounds good!
Technician: Karthik, Engineer replied 5 months ago

Before we proceed further, I would like to ask you few question about this problem. Do you have any WiFi network in your home? The reason why I am asking is we can connect the printer to the wifi network so that you can easily take a print from your iPad.

I do have wi-fi and have printed using my laptop. But I would like to be able to print directly from my iPad. My iPad has Bluetooth and I have the ip100 with the Bluetooth installed in it.
Customer reply replied 5 months ago
I will wait for your response.
Customer reply replied 5 months ago
It is a Canon Bluetooth BU 30
Technician: Karthik, Engineer replied 5 months ago

Now please try this following step on the iPad.

  1. Open the photo that you want to print from.
  2. To find the print option, tap the app’s share icon Arrow or Arrow up.
  3. Tap or Print.
  4. Tap Select Printer and choose an AirPrint printer.
  5. Choose the number of copies or other options, like which pages you want to print.
  6. Tap Print in the upper-right corner.

If that doesn't work or if any other steps is unclear please let me know, So that we can try some other alternate solution. Thank you

Ip100 is not an AirPrint printer.
Technician: Karthik, Engineer replied 5 months ago

I am sorry, I am out of idea. In this case I will opt-out and allow another expert to take over. Other experts will be able to see this question and the conversation which you had with me and they will be providing you a proper solution. Thank you for your patience.

Hi my name is ***** ***** will be assisting you with your question today.

If you open bluetooth on your iPad, can you see the printer on there after going through the pair procedure?

These printers are bluetooth enabled BUT on most of these models you have to purchase a separate dongle that plugs into your printer to enable a broadcast.

Please advise

This is the adapter you need to enable to broadcast to your iPad.. HERE

One you have this THEN you can print via your bluetooth.... I know this model very well.. Have repaired thousands of them.

I have that installed in my printer but the IPad does not recognize it!
Technician: Mike Taylor, Technician replied 5 months ago

OK... Thank you.... Have you set the printer to pairing mode so it actually transmits the bluetooth signal?

Technician: Mike Taylor, Technician replied 5 months ago

Please tell me your laptop operating system?

Technician: Mike Taylor, Technician replied 5 months ago

Ok I just looked up the specifications of the BU30 adapter and according to the printer compatibility list the BU30 isn't for you Pixma ip100... It is showing NOT compatible with that model.

Now, I'm not saying you do not have the capability BUT the BU30 is the wrong adapter for your printer to make this happen. Does that make sense?

Please click HERE and follow these instructions.

The user manual completely contradicts what the device says its compatible with which is the strangest thing ever.. According to CANON this ip100 isn't compatible YET in the canon manual for your model it has instructions on setup.....
