This is the short form for ARM architecture. The ARM, or Acorn RISC Machine, is a 32-bit CPU which is found in many consumer gadgets.
On the iPhone, iPod touch, iPad and Apple TV, there are various processors in use, which all use this architecture:
- Main processors: S5L8900, S5L8720, S5L8920, S5L8922, S5L8930, S5L8940, S5L8942, S5L8945, S5L8950, and S5L8955.
- Baseband processors: PMB8876, PMB8878, XMM6180, MDM6600, MDM6610, MDM9x00.
The following Instruction Sets are being used:
- ARMv6: S5L8900 and S5L8720
- ARMv7: S5L8920, S5L8922, S5L8930, S5L8940, S5L8942, S5L8945, S5L8950, S7002
- ARMv8: S5L8960, T7000, T7000, T7001, S8000, S8001, S8003 - 64-bit version
- ARM Architecture and Assembly Language (written for The iOS Hacker's Handbook but not published in it).
