Should work with the iPad, using air printing, but for some reason my iPad isn't detecting the printer, although it did at first. I have tried the canon website several times, but everything they've suggested has failed to get me printing. I think it's an excellent printer, but this problem is getting very frustrating. It's fine for ordinary wireless printing from my laptop and mac desktop.
After setting up the printer to communicate with the wifi, I managed to print from my iPhone straight away. No adjustment or setting up required with the iPhone. I would think with ipad it will be the same.
