Currently, armv7s cannot be added as a tag on SO because it is so similar to armv7, but the different architecture tags are needed as they effect different sets of devices (iPhone 5 is armv7s and all recent devices before it are armv7)

Do you have links to any questions where this "new" tag is required? – ChrisF Sep 13 '12 at 11:37
Down-votes are different on meta. All that it probably means is "no I don't agree that there should be a separate tag". – ChrisF Sep 13 '12 at 11:42
That question can't have any more tags added as it already has 5. – ChrisF Sep 13 '12 at 11:43
Yes, I had to add armv7 instead. If you are going to add it, I can remove the armv7 tag. – coneybeare Sep 13 '12 at 11:44
Thanks for the link. – coneybeare Sep 13 '12 at 11:45
It hasn't got the armv7 on it though – ChrisF Sep 13 '12 at 11:45
tagging it as iphone5 etc is probably more useful. You need to consider which tags will really draw in the intended and likely audience – prusswan Sep 13 '12 at 11:45
It affects the new iPods and probably a gaggle of devices that will come – coneybeare Sep 13 '12 at 11:47
@coneybeare but so does iPhone-5. Personally I listen to all iPhone* tags, and thus our little run in earlier. ARMv7s isn't that different than armv7, but there's little to no documentation on the web. Maybe once there is it would arrant a new tag, but not now. – Richard J. Ross III Sep 13 '12 at 12:02
@RichardJ.RossIII Of course not, because it pertains to the A6 chip which was publicly announced just yesterday (and thus not under NDA) – coneybeare Sep 13 '12 at 12:09
There is a lot to be learned by grepping… – coneybeare Sep 13 '12 at 12:14
@RichardJ.RossIII Just because a tag doesn't have a wiki doesn't mean that it shouldn't exist. – casperOne Sep 13 '12 at 12:37
@Richard: If official documentation is bad that makes SO questions/answers on the topic all the more useful... – sth Sep 13 '12 at 12:55
