Does app only authentication rate limit apply to all devices universally?

Hi, From my understanding the rate limit applies universally to the application.
Does this mean that all my users combined together can only make 15 request every 15 minutes?
That seems pretty impossible to handle unless I have a server that is catching the data and then serving it to users.

I’m developing for iOS and planning on getting trends, which is 15 request per 15 mins.

Thank You

Yes, the application only rate limits are per app. If you need more, you should consider having users sign in; or, caching the results in your server.
