New US trademark filing hints Samsung is working on Self Repair Assistant app

A recently discovered US trademark filing from Samsung suggests it may be expanding its self-repair service and launching a new support app to boot.

The app is called Self Repair Assistant, according to the declaration (opens in new tab) on the website of the United States Patent and Trademark Office. Its purpose is to provide “consultancy and information services related to [the] self-installation, self-maintenance and self-repair…” of various mobile devices. Samsung currently has one collaboration with repair company iFixit to provide information and resources to its self-healing program. Launching this app means you no longer have to go to iFixit’s website to read a guide; it all goes through Samsung.
