I"m bringing this thread back up after a year since it's inception.

Wondering if any new discoveries have been made regarding the best AirPrint Printer out there?

I never did end up purchasing a printer due to information overload and not wanting to purchase the wrong one. For all of 2019 I've just been visiting FedEx to do my printing or visiting local libraries to do my bidding, but the time has come for me to make a decision and somewhat rather quickly as I'll be needing my very own printer come Christmas time.

If I had to close my eyes and just buy one I'd probably get the Brother HL-L2395DW.

i have a Brother HL L2350dw

up front it prints ios12/13 just fine out of the box, functional apple driver support

good
-low cost good quality, monochrome led unit
-prints fast, at least for what we use it for
-on a home network its a wifi printer w/o ethernet capability so no need to re wire things

Bad:
-get low toner warning but lots of prints left in cartridge, so need to lock out the sensor
-cartridge has a chip that you physically move to the 3rd party low cost toner cartridge
-setup is simple but difficult because they omit telling you things in the installation manual
-they have a phone tech support peeps work off information that is years dated
-the drum is a disposable too


do a rumors search, I wrote a detailed review when I bought it
good luck

My printing needs are very minimal so I ended up getting an HP OfficeJet 3830 inkjet MFP a couple of years ago and signed up for the free level of HP Instant Ink (up to 15 pages per month) once the starter cartridges got low.

I average about 7 pages per month and only twice in the past year have I hit 14-15 pages.

Of course if I need to print more I have a credit card on file that will be charged for additional pages. I've never used it though so my inkjet cartridges are basically free. There are no rollover pages at the free level unlike the paid tiers.

I primarily use the device as a flatbed scanner.
