Updated AWS S3 connection mechanism to strict TLS 1.2
AWS announced a while back that TLS 1.2 will become the minimum requirement for all their API endpoints. We use AWS S3 to store assets like your product icons, store icons, screenshots etc. To ensure the smooth continuation of service, we audited our implementations and tested with a strict TLS 1.2 connection to the S3 API endpoints.

http page. To make the impact minimal, we will now be serving (both existing and new) all asset links with
https URL format:
So in case, you’ve been adding the protocol to the URL for your own use case, please remove them and expect a full
https URLs from our API.
