I posted this for Windows already a while ago, and one for macOS as well, but for some reason it wasn't showing here, so here again ...

Apple discourages the use of OpenSSL so we will use standard Apple framework calls.

For this I use a unit van Phil Hess:

uses ... ns_url_request ... // Note: "ns_url_request" uses Phil's "NSHelpers" unit.
 
...
 
function TForm1.GetURLContent(aURL:string):string;
var
  HTTP: TNSHTTPSendAndReceive;
begin
  HTTP := TNSHTTPSendAndReceive.Create;
  HTTP.Method := 'GET';
  HTTP.Address := aURL;
  HTTP.SendAndReceive(Result);
  HTTP.Free;
end;  

 

Note: I've attached both unit here, but you can also download it from his website.
