The iOS 8 extension is included in versions 3.50 and higher. It must be enabled in the extensions settings by toggling on. Currently it can handle PDF’s only.
Currently we work with Zebra WiFi printers that are ZPL or CPCL. For Bluetooth printers, check for Mfi models that Zebra is starting to release. With Bluetooth, the iMZ series, QLn Series, and ZT series all have ios bluetooth models. Please make sure the config you order is the right one. I would suggest checking the devices page in our app which will take you to our partner Arrowhead to purchase the printer.

This means your printer is in lineprint mode (CPCL). Please set your printer to ZPL. With printer attached and connected, open Printer Utilities, select Printer Language and select ZPL. Now from main screen with ZPL selected hit the orange “Send” button on that same row. You will see the printer blink a couple times. Your printer is not in ZPL mode. Happy PDF printing.

The best method for factory defaulting the printer is to click the button in Printer Utilities to Restore Defaults. This will reset all setting and even the network/bluetooth connection. To totally reset back to factory settings in its new condition, you also can send this command from Zebra setup utilities communication window or from the windows driver.
