Since our mobiles are becoming intelligent daily, handling also slowly becomes complicated. Until it works well, everything is fine. But when it is stuck or freezes and has other issues, we can’t do anything as a regular user. Since All of the recent mobiles come with an in-built battery, We can’t also fix the common stuck issue by removing and inserting the battery. When the problem is negligible most of the time, we can fix it ourselves when we know some basic things. But at all times, We can’t reach technicians. Since Samsung has already partnered with iFixit, Samsung is planning to release the Self Repair Assistant App. The app will help Advanced users.
Samsung Self-Repair Assistant App
Samsung introduced the Self-Repair Program in the USA during the summer. The basic idea behind the program is that it allows Galaxy device owners who reside in the United States to acquire phone components and tools for DIY repairs. Samsung launched the Self-Repair program in collaboration with iFixit by providing the parts, tools, and instructions on disassembly and fixing.
The trademark application is described in the trademark filing as “Self Repair Assistant” as a “computer application software designed for mobile phones that can be installed by themselves and for maintenance of tablets, smartwatches as well as mobile phones and Earbuds.” It’s supposed to offer “consultancy as well as information regarding the self-installation process and repairs” of various mobile devices.
In another way, Samsung may be working on a mobile application that will enable Self-Repair customers to access additional information about how to handle and fix their Samsung smartphones. Instead of navigating this iFixit website, Samsung might provide guides and other helpful tidbits of information via a mobile application, i.e., Self Repair Assistant.
Existing Samsung Self-Repair Program
In its initial days, it was clear that the Samsung Self-Repair program covered only the most basic of gadgets, including those from the Galaxy S20 series, the Galaxy S21 trio, and the Galaxy Tab S7+. The program has not changed much since then. The devices are still the only ones covered by the program, but maybe the particular Self-Repair Assistant application will let Samsung extend that list.
It’s too early to tell, but the fact that an application is trademarked doesn’t mean it will be made available. It could be the next natural step if Samsung plans to improve the application and make it easier for DIYers.
During the complicated days, we have to stay in our houses. We can’t go to the service center and repair our mobile when necessary. We are dealing with Smartphones daily. So, It is essential to learn some basic things and help ourselves when no one is available. With the new Samsung Self-Repair Assistant App, we can help ourselves to fix our mobile. Initially, there was no idea how much Samsung would help with the latest mobiles. But, we can see it as an initiation towards Can Repair.
