A printer on the network.

You use a printer object to obtain information about a printer so that you can display that information in your app’s interface. You do not use printer objects to communicate with the printer directly.

Most of the time, you use a UIPrinterPickerControllerMBS object to retrieve a printer object representing the printer selected by the user. If you already have a URL containing the address of a printer—perhaps one that was previously selected by the user—you can use that URL to create a printer object directly. When creating your own printer objects, you must connect to the printer using the contactPrinter method before retrieving any of the printer’s attributes.
This is an abstract class. You can't create an instance, but you can get one from various plugin functions.
