iOS to require HTTPS by end of 2016

In this year’s WDC, Apple announced that it would require HTTPS connections in apps starting in January 2017 (story here). Will this affect Ionic apps as well?

This will affect any site/API that you are trying to reach.
So if you try to send an API request to http:/ it will be blocked.

Almost every API these days does have a SSL so this should’t be a huge issue.
But if you are making an request to a regular HTTP server, this is be an issue.
