I recently purchased a Phaser 3020, but I have no CD drive in my MacBook to install the software in order to use AirPrint. Is there any timeframe for the upload of the software for MacOS Catalina? The most recent (today, actually) is the regular driver (printing using USB), but I want to use it AirPrint.
Thanks in advance.
The timeframe is never, Xerox doesn't support Catalina for the 3020,
Airprint is supported by Apple, there are no drivers, so it should work fine assuming you have it enabled on the printer already, and it would seem you do since upgrading to Catalina can't have changed that on the printer, but just to be sure:
To configure AirPrint:
I have seen this answer in other forums and also in the user manual. But HOW tdo I connect to the printer IP address. I have tried just typing the IP on a web browser while the printer is on, I have also tried connecting to the printer using WIFI Direct and then typing the number, but I can't connect to the IP address. In my printer's case the IP is 169.254.134.184
Please help me
That address isn't valid. Its the address you would get when not connected to a network.
When installing the printer, you can use the Xerox Easy Wireless Setup program to configure the wireless settings.
Disable WiFi Direct at the Control Panel

Dear Joe, thanks for your reply, but I still can't find the way to configure the WifiSettings in order to use AirPlay. Can you please explain how to do it on a MacOS?
I am using the Easy Printer Manager but I see no option to configure Wifi settings. Here is a screen capture of what is appearing on the app:
Have you tried just plugging it into the network with a network cable?
I'd help on the Mac if I had one, but it simply might not be possible, Xerox is getting pretty bad at releasing software that works on macOS. I mean nobody really runs 10.14 anymore but they have the stuff to make that work
But everyone is on 10.15 now (Came out Oct 9 2019) and they simply have nothing but the driver (no utilities)
And 10.16 should be released in another 5 months
