Want to get the most out your Apple iPhone, iPad or iPod Touch device and your Konica Minolta printer? Konica Minolta’s PageScope Mobile app is a cutting-edge application that connects your mobile Apple device with our line of bizhub multi-function printers. After installing the printing app from the iTunes Store, you can print directly from your Apple device, as well as scan documents for instant access on those devices.

- iPad/iPad 2/iPad 3: iOS 4.2, 4.3, 5.0, 5.1; or iPhone 3GS/iPhone 4: iOS 4.3, 5.0, 5.1; or iPod touch fourth generation: iOS 4.2, 4.3, 5.0, 5.1
