Here at iPhone Life, we're already speculating about what the circle might be teasing. Perhaps a round watch face? Well, if so, then that would go against the rumours that Apple is decreasing the bevel on the Watch 4. Could this be a reference to the StudioPods?

The emblem looks a bit like the top of a HomePod; we haven't heard many rumours about the HomePod yet, but maybe no news is good news.
