Apple enforcing https connections

  1. Apple will be restricting network communication from iOS apps to https servers from January 1:

    https://techcrunch.com/2016/06/14/apple-will-require-https-connections-for-ios-apps-by-the-end-of-2016/

    I imagine this will prevent the WordPress app from talking directly to self-hosted WordPress blogs, which could be quite a problem for the many of us using shared hosting over http.

    I'm interested in hearing any thoughts on this. Whether this will in fact prevent the app from working with http-only sites, and if there are possible strategies to work around this (other than changing the site to https, of course). Responses such as 'you should already be on https' aren't helpful :)

  2. Hi @ohbrilliance

    Our current understanding is Apple will continue to allow certain exceptions.
