Pair and connect the Bluetooth wireless receipt printer with your iPad

It's important to understand the difference between pairing and connecting Bluetooth devices. Pairing identifies the devices to each other, and establishes a bond between them. This enables the paired devices to connect in the future without repeating authentication checks.

The Star Micronics TSP100IIIBI Bluetooth wireless receipt printer (model number 39472110) comes with auto-connect enabled. This means that after you've paired your printer with your iPad, the Bluetooth connection is established automatically every time the printer is switched on and in range of your iPad.


  1. Connect your printer to the power supply.

  2. Tap the Settings icon on your iPad, and then tap the Bluetooth menu option. You should see the Star Micronics printer in the Other devices list, with a name like "TSP100-XXXXX" or "Star Micronics":

  3. Tap the receipt printer TSP100-XXXX and wait for the pairing process to complete. The pairing is complete when the printer moves to the My devices list and has Connected displayed to the right of its name:
