Apple announced the ability to wirelessly print from iOS 4.2 running devices with a separate press-release in September. In the press-release Apple said that iOS 4.2 devices can print to printers shared through a Mac or a PC. Now MacStories reports that Apple has canceled AirPrint through Mac and Windows. Apple has supposedly removed all references to this capability from the documentation of the upcoming OS X 10.6.5 update.

If this turns out to be true only select HP printers with the latest firmware will be supporting AirPrint. HP printers compatible with AirPrint are the HP Photosmart, Officejet, Officejet Pro and LaserJet Pro series with ePrint. I already see HP opening the champagne on the prospect of new printer sales. Count me out though. I will not go out an buy a new printer to be able to print from my iPhone.

If Apple has just postponed the AirPrint via Mac capability or postponed because of technical issues remains to be seen. Of course it all could be a big miss understanding. The latest rumors suggest that the OS X 10.6.5 update wil be released today and iOS 4.2 comes on Friday.
