Answer:

iPhone, iPad

See explanation

Explanation:

These proper nouns have names starting with a lowercase letter. No matter where these words go in a sentence, they always stay the same spelling and capitalization as the brand named it.

Examples:

iPhones are very popular. #color(green)("[CORRECT]")#

Ipads are great for games. #color(red)("[INCORRECT]")#

There is one exception, however. If all words in a sentence are capitalized, so can the proper noun. This will usually be common in newspapers or headings.

Example:

NEW IPHONE SPARKS BUYING SPREES #color(grey)("[ACCEPTABLE]")#
