Apple has revised its original AirPrint announcement, removing promised support for the second-generation iPod touch. Announced in September, AirPrint automatically finds printers on local networks that can print text, photos, and graphics wirelessly over Wi-Fi without the need for additional drivers or software. Notably, Apple’s original release claimed that printing would only be supported on iOS devices that support multitasking, yet listed the second-generation iPod touch as compatible. The second-generation iPod touch has since been removed from the compatible device list. This is the second incident in the last few months where Apple has revised its list of supported devices before a software update’s official launch, as it removed Game Center support for the iPhone 3G and iPod touch 2G while it was still in beta testing, only to add back support for the second-gen touch shortly before the feature’s debut in iOS 4.1.
