Zebra Technologies Corporation, a global provider of specialty printing and automatic identification solutions, has announced that users can now print directly to a Zebra mobile or stationary printer from Apple iPhone, iPad, and iPod touch mobile digital devices, using the Zebra Utilities app and ZebraLink Multiplatform SDK.

As mobility in the workforce continues to be a top priority in 2011, this announcement reflects our ongoing dedication to helping to keep customers ahead of the curve" said Rod Rodericks, Vice President and Managing Director at Zebra Technologies, EMEA.
