A iPhone 5 user can print from his phone if the color printer is AirPrint-enabled and both the printer and iPhone are connected to Wi-Fi. As of 2015, most major printer brands are AirPrint-enabled.
To print from an iPhone 5, the user presses the share or settings icon, depending on the app, and then taps the printer icon. This action allows the user to choose the printer from a list of available devices. Printing can begin after the user chooses the number of copies and taps the print button. If the printer is not available on the list, the user should check to make sure the iPhone and printer are both on the same Wi-Fi network and that the printer is AirPrint-enabled.
