    I remember an article where you were able to get OS X 10.9 Mavericks running (kind of) on an iPad Air. I was wondering, does anyone know of any ARM code in newer versions of OS X or MacOS?

    Here is the article

    That article is an April Fools joke! They didn't have Mavericks actually running on an iPad.

    From what I'm aware, there are no ARM binaries in any existing copy of OS X. The closest thing related to iOS are the binaries that are part of iOS Simulator, but even those are cross-compiled Intel binaries.
