Here are a few useful links:




Last year I managed to build an iOS application with the architecture
you describe using the tools in the ghc-ios/ghc-ios-scripts repository
in GitHub.  I never did manage to get it working for 64-bit ARM,
though, due to some issues that were not resolved at the time, but I
do remember hearing of someone else getting it working (although I
can’t quite remember who it was).  The Apple App Store now requires
builds to be 64-bit compatible, so this may be a more serious issue
nowadays — or it may be fixed, hopefully!
