Question: Is there any way to use a Dymo 4xl printer with an iPad Pro?

I’m looking to upgrade my laptop to an iPad Pro for my business but I use the dymo 4 xl shipping label printer and it’s absolutely necessary for me. I can’t seems to find a straight answer one way or the other if they can work together. It is not wireless or Bluetooth capable. One tech I talked to said I could use a USB adapter for the iPad but I haven’t found any info on that either. I’m totally fine if there’s a workaround, but I wouldn’t know where to start. It seems like I should be able to make this happen but I can’t make a $1000+ purchase without being sure!

ways to print with ios devices such as ipads


1. the printer support apples generic airprint interface and is connected to the same wifi network About AirPrint - Apple Support


2. find a printing app in app store which support the model of printer (many manufactures have apps I use one from Samsung for my wifi Samsung printer)


3. not sure if it still the case but awhile back if one installed netgear genie on a computer it would make all printers it had drivers for work as airprint enabled printers for ios devices on the network



ways that will not work is usb connected or the likes directly to the ios device

For an iPad to directly use a printer, it needs to be AirPrint compatible and be connected to the same Wifi network as the iPad.


About AirPrint - Apple Support


The Dymo does not appear to be AirPrint compatible, nor even wireless.


If it can be connected to a computer, there is software out there that as mentioned that can share the printer out to iOS devices.


There also appears to be a Dymo App, though I'm not entirely certain it will work other than to create the labels

DYMO Connect on the App Store


Your best option would be to contact Dymo support and ask them about what there printer can do with an iPad
