@popiels, Welcome to the HP Support Community!


This model printer is not AirPrint compatible. There is no option to connect the printer to the iPhone. There is no printing app that supports this printer on the iOS device.


Refer to this document to know how to setup./connect the printer via BlueTooth.


Check the BlueTooth settings on the iPhone. Make it discoverable. 


Hope this helps! Keep me posted.
