Canon Pixma Pro 100s: ink 1/4 gone after 10 small prints

Hello printer & printing folks,

Three weeks ago I purchased a new Canon Pro 100s from John Lewis, UK. I know that these printers are not cheap to run but I am concerned how the Supply Level is showing me ~1/4 used after printing ten 6x4 photos and one single A4 photo (mixture of colour and B&Ws). The details:

- I have printed on Canon Photo Paper Plus Glossy 2 paper.

- I am using the original Canon ink cartridges.

- For half the prints I did them directly from my iPhones AirPrint, but stopped this due to poor print quality (images were dull).

- The other half I have printed from the Macs native Preview application. I set the correct paper type and size.

It seems to me there are 3 options:

1. This the sort of ink duration I can expect, and at this rate, the ink will run finish by about 40 small 6x4 photos. This does not seem right.

2. There is a problem with my printer/ink

3. The Macs Supply Level preview is not accurate.

Hoping someone with experience printing with the Pixma Pro 100 can help me work out what maybe going on? I have attached

As always, many thanks!
