    I would like to know from those that have used iOS 7 if you see anything about using bluetooth to do printing ? The reason is I would like to change back to a iPhone but without that I have to stay with android. Unless someone knows of a direct wifi portable printer that with work with the iPhone. Because I need to print invoices in the field.
    Thanks.

    While I haven't used iOS7, perhaps some of these printers will work with AirPlay? Buy AirPrint Printers - Wireless Printers for iPad - Apple Store (U.S.)!

    A few other ideas that may help are:
    1. Use Personal HotSpot from your iPhone and connect wireless printer to the HotSpot
    2. Take a MiFi based HotSpot in the field. Although this may be more expensive due to a data plan from carrier, could serve as a portable LAN/WAN. iPhone and printer could be connected for printing
    3. Get an LTE based iPad or iPad mini, and use as personal HotSpot

    Thanks for the reply but none of those printers are small enough to carrier in to a customer house and used. I do have a mini ipad with LTE but still don't have a printer small enough to carry around.
    Thanks

    Cool. I've seen many Service professionals come to my house and print invoice or estimates from a setup in their vehicle. Sounds like you need a more portable one. Some the printers referenced in these links may be AirPrint capable, and meet your portability needs.
