Issues after updating to IOS 9.0.1 and xcode 7

I am facing the following two errors after updating ios 9.0.1 and xcode 7

  1. [Error] Error: [$rootScope:infdig] 10 $digest() iterations reached. Aborting!
    Watchers fired in the last 5 iterations: []$rootScope/infdig?p0=10&p1=[]
    $apply (ionic.bundle.js, line 24781)
    (anonymous function) (ionic.bundle.js, line 58933)
    eventHandler (ionic.bundle.js, line 12098)
    dispatchEvent ([native code], line 0)
    triggerMouseEvent (ionic.bundle.js, line 2865)
    tapClick (ionic.bundle.js, line 2854)
    tapTouchEnd (ionic.bundle.js, line 2977)

and all http requests are failing with error message

[Error] Failed to load resource: (URL …) The resource could not be loaded because the App Transport Security policy requires the use of a secure connection.

Please read for App Transport Security workaround and for the digest cycle.
