Setting up your Star mC-Print (Ethernet) for iPad


Updating to iOS 14+ on iPad will prompt you to grant the Vend Register App permissions to access Bluetooth and Local Network settings on your iPad.

If declined, this will cause your printer to no longer function. To fix this, ensure that Bluetooth and Local Network Permissions are enabled in Settings -> Vend Register on your device.
