Configuring AirPrint and AirPlay profiles for iOS devices Skip Navigation

Configuring
AirPrint
and
AirPlay
profiles for
iOS
devices

AirPrint
profiles can help users find printers that support
AirPrint
, are accessible to them, and for which they have the required permissions. In situations where protocols such as
Bonjour
can't discover
AirPrint
enabled printers on another subnetwork,
AirPrint
profiles aid in specifying where resources are located. You can assign
AirPrint
profiles to
iOS
and
iPadOS
devices so that users don’t have to configure printers manually.
AirPlay
is a feature that lets you display photos or stream music and video to compatible
AirPlay
devices such as
Apple
TV, AirPort Express, or
AirPlay
enabled speakers.
With an
AirPlay
profile you can specify which
AirPlay
devices
iOS
and
iPadOS
users can connect to. The
AirPlay
profile has two options:
  • If your organization's
    AirPlay
    devices are password protected, you can specify device passwords for allowed destination devices so that
    iOS
    and
    iPadOS
    device users are able to connect without knowing the password.
  • For supervised devices, you can restrict which
    AirPlay
    devices users can connect to by specifying a list of allowed
    AirPlay
    devices for supervised devices. Supervised devices can connect only to the
    AirPlay
    devices specified in the list. If you don't create a list, supervised devices can connect to any
    AirPlay
    device.
