In the latest agreement Apple changed the wording to:

    Unless otherwise approved by Apple in writing, no interpreted code may
    be downloaded or used in an Application except for code that is interpreted
    and run by Apple’s Documented APIs and built-in interpreter(s).
    Notwithstanding the foregoing, with Apple’s prior written consent,
an Application
    may use embedded interpreted code in a limited way if such use is solely
    for providing minor features or functionality that are consistent with the
    intended and advertised purpose of the Application.

This means that if Racket gets an Arm port, it is possible to use it.
MzScheme used to have an Arm port, but I am somewhat unsure,
whether it has survived the test of time. Has it survived?
