Canon has announced a series of five new MAXIFY inkjet printers with AirPrint support, including the MB5420, MB5120, MB2720, MB2120, and iB4120 models.

Canon-Maxify-New-Printers
AirPrint enables wireless printing from iPhone, iPad, iPod touch, and Mac without having to install additional software or drivers. The technology is supported by dozens of printers sold by Brother, Canon, Dell, Epson, HP, Lenovo, Lexmark, Panasonic, Ricoh, Samsung, Toshiba, Xerox, and other manufacturers.

Canon's MAXIFY lineup of all-in-one printers are designed for home or small office use, with built-in copying, scanning, and faxing capabilities alongside cloud-connected features through the free Canon PRINT app. The all-new printers retail for between $149.99 and $399.99 on Canon's website based on U.S. pricing.

In a time where even the kitchen sink has a network connector, wifi and bluetooth it's a disgrace that this stuff are still called premium features.

Look like nice printers, but I'm done with inkjet printers. Like most people I don't print as much as I used to and I found that every time I wanted to print the inkjet cartridges were dried out. Printing was getting very expensive. So switched to color laser and don't have that problem any longer. The Dell E525w goes on sale for $120 and is a color printer, scanner, copier, fax, supports AirPrint that I've been pretty impressed with the short time I've had it.

Printers go into the same category as VCRs and landlines in my mind...
People still own those?

You have to pay $100+ upfront for the printer, and then you have to go back to the store and pay for paper and ink from time to time.

It's incredibly rare that you actually need to do anything with a printer anymore. I receive PDFs by email, fill them out in Preview or on my iPhone (the default mail app has nifty features for filling out PDFs), send them back. If I have to fax it instead, there are cheap online services that you can upload PDFs to have them faxed on your behalf. If you must have stuff printed for some reason, just use the printer at work or staples or the library or whatever - you were going to need to go out to buy ink and paper anyways.

They just make no sense. I stopped having a printer 4 years ago.
You're right when it comes to consumers. Definitely wrong when it comes to businesses. Paper, ink, and toner are still the top consumables. My company does some backend work for Staples and Office Depot. Their numbers are interesting. Both hate selling those 3 items because there's no real money in it. Printers are so cheap that they're almost considered a throw away product. Apparently, the paperless office is a unicorn in the business world as a whole. Their research has shown people still overwhelmingly desire the tactile feel of paper.

Haven't Canon printers supported AirPrint for a while though? The one I have had for a while supports AirPrint.

WTF is taking so long canon?
Nowhere in the article it says that these are the first Airprint equipped printers from Canon and Canon have had Airprint capable printers for years and years so your question is kinda odd
