CUPERTINO (AP) — Apple says new software available Monday will allow owners of the iPhone, iPod Touch and iPad to print wirelessly over Wi-Fi networks.

The update will also allow iPad users to switch quickly between applications for the first time, a feature that had already been available on recent models of the iPhone and iPod.

The update addresses one of the key drawbacks identified by Apple Inc. fans. While the company’s mobile gadgets can connect to computers for transferring files, they don’t have ports for hooking up with printers or USB drives.
