Epson has announced that printer ink users will soon be able to churn out documents from their Apple devices over a wireless connection.

It said that AirPrint will be supported on most major models of the firm's inkjet printers from later this month. This will mean that people using an iPad, iPhone or iPod Touch can connect to an Epson machine and send emails or documents for printing.

Ian Cameron, general manager of global communications at the company, said: "We're delighted users of Epson's AirPrint-enabled printers will now be able to print directly from their iOS devices. With AirPrint, no software or setup is required, so documents, photos and emails can be quickly and easily printed to any AirPrint-enabled Epson printer."

AirPrint can be used on the original iPad, iPad 2, iPhone 3GS, iPhone 4 and iPod Touch third generation, providing the devices are running iOS 4.2 or later. Apple added that AirPrint works with Safari, Mail, Photos, iWork, PDFs in iBooks and other third-party applications.
