The potential for problems like this will exist with any printer. Correct color accuracy and rendition depend on several things.
ICC Color profiles
Correct media type selection
What you see might not be what you get. This is because the actual colors in the photo may not match what you see on your screen.
This is why correct monitor calibration is important. Apple increases the brightness and saturation on their iPhones and iPADs, but this may not reflect the actual brightness and colors in a image file.
ICC profiles or color space define the colors on input and output devices. Again, the color space of your input (iPAD) and output (printer) device must match in order for true and accurate colors to be reproduced. (brightness, tone, saturation, etc)
Media types. Inks react differently depending on the settings used and type of paper you are printing on.
Further. photos saved on your iPAD often use compression, (to save space) so the actual data (colors) etc in a picture may not contain all of the data your printer needs to interpret and accurately print a photo.
Bottom line. Printing from an iPAD is not an ideal way to obtain the best results.

I don't think you can calibrate an iPAD. Function there is limited, but a good photo app such as Ps or Lr should help.

All the issues Rick identified will affect how an image finally prints on your printer.
I am not able to link my Pro-100 to my iPad for some reason, but I can link my MX472, so you may be able to use this approach":
1. install the Canon Print inkjet/selphy app on the iPad.
2. export your document from Adobe into the iPad Photos app.
3. select the document in the Canon app and select your size, paper, etc.

Good morning Lauren.
I can only link to my MX472, but I opened a landscape oriented image and it printed landscape. Opened a portrait oriented image and it printed portrait.
I printed on letter size plain paper.
If you can't duplicate what I did give Canon a call at (866) 261-9362.

I don't know how much adjustment capability the Toshiba will give you, but btween the laptop and adkustments in the printer you may be able to get close.
Download the test image from the folowing link. Open it in your photo software and print it using all the correct printer settings for paper and profiles, but do not make any editing adjustments in the software.
The print should be good - it is a calibrated image. If it doesn't look good you will need to make sure printer is functioning correctly.
Make whatever brightness and color asjustments you can make in the laptop to get the laoptop display to get as close as possible to the print.
Download and install Canon Print Studio Pro from the Canon support site. Using PSP you can print a pattern print that varies the different inks. Find the image that looks like the test print and dial those settings into your printer.
