Since updating my Apple devices to ios 8.1 from ios 7, I am no longer able to AirPrint from those devices. Prior to this update, my printer worked beautifully. Who should fix this problem -- Apple or Dell? Could a firmware update from Dell solve the problem? When I've contacted Dell Printer Support, they seem only vaguely aware of the problem -- Seems to me that the obvious culprit is Apple's ios 8. I feel like I'm between the proverbial "rock and hard place." Advice welcome.

I have the same exact problem. After being on the phone with Apple for over an hour the apple rep called sell while I was on the phone. My dell printer (which I found out is actually made by Samsung) is not compatible with iOS 8. He said they are working on a firmware update for the printer. No ETA. sell is still advertising these printers being compatible with iOS. Obviously they are not. So I'm SOL atm
took all my Apple devices to the Apple store, they said that it was a Dell problem, i just brought this printer and cannot use airprint. Dell we need a solutions ASAP.
Dell has a firmware fix for this. I've implemented it and it works with my IOS 8 devices. If you have trouble implementing this zipfile fix, you can get help from Technical Support.
