The description of the feature also points to the tech company's digital assistant Siri, as one of the Apple device services that would directly benefit from the iCloud Analytics.

The Find My iPhone feature can now locate and play sound for the wireless headphones, AirPods. This could mean that Apple device users don't have to panic if they lose track of the AirPods.
