Aaaaaaaand open the floodgates. Assuming you want a mix of stuff, I'd suggest:
The World Ends With You - unique action RPG that, IMHO, is Square Enix's best work.
Final Fantasy IX and/or Dragon Quest VIII - archetypal JRPGs. Both enormously long, both among the best in their series on iOS.
Knights of the Old Republic - seminal WRPG, bound to be on sale come May 4th.
Teeny Titans - riff on Pokemon that's one of the best made-for-iOS games out there
Legend of Grimrock - superb modern-day recreation of an old-school dungeon crawler
Ys I and II - classic Japanese action RPGs that are all about the boss fights
Planescape Torment - puts the RPG back into CRPGs

And there are plenty more...

There are a lot of good RPG but some I can't recommend them as they stop supporting the games. You need to consider getting those that u are assured will be supported on the new iPhone 11 etc.

Good RPGs not supported anymore
TWEWY.
Chaos Rings 3 - highly recommended poor support.
Final Fantasy series.

Recommended with good support
All games created by Greg Kasavin
Cat Quest
FF 15 pocket edition

Already have FFI,FF5,6 and Tactics on ios,FFII on PSP,3 on DS,4 on PSP,7 on ps3(digital),9 physical(PS1),my iPad is an Air so no access to XV,anyway I don't like XV on PS4 so probably won't change my opinion on it.I'm scared Cat Quest will be too childish,simplistic to the point a baby could play it or far too much the same nostalgia grab with nothing refreshing or interesting in it to make me wants to play more.I wants high quality games that truly stand out from the rest without being a mere clone that lack a soul of it's own.

Then bite the bullet and get The World Ends With You - it's not going on sale, but it's well, we'll worth the money.
