Bluetooth printing

HP Recommended
OfficeJet 150 Mobile inkjet printer
iOS

So I’m trying to use this three year old printer for the first time. It has bluetooth as a connectivity option but I’m unable to connect to it with my iPhone. I would assume as long as the radio is set to “on”, low security option is selected, etc. that it should show up on the iphone’s list of My Devices in the bluetooth settings list of devices to pair with. I also find it odd theres no “pairing” button on the printer somewhere. Anyway, it appears I left the battery in a discharged state for far too long - doesn't appear to take a charge now. 
Thats easy to replace but I’d sure like to be able to use this printer with my iPhone. Any suggestions?

Hi,

I afraid the printer is not supported on Apple iOS or Android devices.

As a reference, see the 'Bluetooth printing with a mobile device' section:

https://support.hp.com/us-en/product/hp-officejet-150-mobile-all-in-one-printer-series-l511/4231411/...

 

Although no official support is provided for such mobile operating systems, you might be able to print via Bluetooth from Android devices using 3rd party utilities such as the Printer share app, but not on iOS devices which its Bluetooth functionality is more limited.

So it couldn’t be a limitation of the bluetooth implementation of this particular printer. It has to be that iOS is the problem. Thats’s right, I have this problem with so many devices, what was I thinking. Over the years, My numerous flavors of BT headsets, the BT speakers, my various printers from HP and Brother and Epson and others, bi-directional scanning, etc,etc. All of those with ease and yet, iOS is the problem? 
Thanks anyway but if you told me that HP designed and released a mobile printing solution  thoroughly unfit for the purpose I would have applauded your authenticity rather mock you with  sarcasm.
