Does API throttling apply to GET endpoints only or to image URLs as well?


I’m doing a few API calls for an app I’m building on iOS and obviously want to stick to the limits of 60-100 requests per minute for the endpoints but I was wondering if that limit applies to URLs for images, for example:

It seems that about 20-25% of the images that I am interested in are stored on AWS while the majority are on so I was hoping that as these aren’t API endpoints and some are stored elsewhere that the data limits might not apply.

Anyone know about this?

generally, i wouldn’t think of getting images as making API requests, unless you’re getting map tiles.
