In the case of aluminium iodide an ionic bond with much covalent character is present. In the AlI3 bonding, the aluminium gains a +3 charge. The large charge pulls on the electron cloud of the iodines. All bonds that aren't two of the same atoms bonded together are somewhat ionic and somewhat covalent in nature.
