I'd pick the iphone/ipad "definers" if i were to make a list for apple, like Temple Run 2, IB3, Fruit Ninja, Super Hex, The Room, etc... Choices made for marketing reasons.

But if i want to gift an iphone to a loved one (who can play games decently, and not a total casual) and should put 10 games in it...

Boson X
Monster Hunter Freedom Unite
Battleheart Legacy
Limbo
Repulze
Blueprint 3D
Phoenix HD with all ships unlocked together with the coin tripler (or if that's not possible then Danmaku Unlimited 2)
Fireball SE
EPOCH.2
Anomaly 2

Exact-Psience My 2014 Top 10 Games of the Year: Monster Hunter Freedom Unite, Hearthstone, VVVVVV, Battleheart Legacy, Wayward Souls, Bug Heroes 2, Powerpuff Girls Defenders of Townsville, Deep Loot, Monument Valley, Bioshock Honorable Mentions: Traps N Gemstones, Bardbarian, Goblin Sword

Interesting thread...hmm...pretending it's for those who don't know iphones and ios gaming, then i put them on Apple's needle with:

Epic Zen Garden - show off
Fruit Ninja - swipe
Tiny Wings - tap
Tilt to Live - tilt
World of Goo - physics
Oceanhorn - adventure
Anomaly 2 - tactics
Papa Sangre - listen
The Room 2 - simply a must have
Toucharcade - look for yourself

Edit: Sky Force - a f2p done right, and who doesn't like to shot something once in a while...

All devices should come with Angry Birds. Its the gateway drug.

I like Qwertz's mix... Not the picksexactly, but the amount of variety in it as an invitation to iOS gaming for the new users. I also went by with this thought in my picks, but i think Qwertz's choices are easier to get into than mine.
