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. $\textcolor{g r e e n}{\text{[CORRECT]}}$

Ipads are great for games. $\textcolor{red}{\text{[INCORRECT]}}$

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 $\textcolor{g r e y}{\text{[ACCEPTABLE]}}$
