How does polarity and ionicity relate to each other?

the higher the polarity, the more unequal the sharing of electrons would be, and the higher the ability of the two atoms to ionize and therefore the higher the ionicity.

Non-polar bonding involves the equal sharing of electrons between identical non-metal atoms, polar bonding is the unequal sharing of electrons between two different non metal atoms. Ionic bonding is on one extreme with a complete transfer of electrons forming charged ions.

You can think of bigger polarity as one element wanting and pulling on electrons more. Thus ionic is just when there is such a big difference that one element "gets" the electron instead of sharing it.
