Automation on iPhone is connected to some things like back up, downloads, update for one purpose: Apple wants everything just it works and user is not occupied with those things. It is a good idea, but it can be bad just because one thing, for instance: iPhone can automatically updates an application once its update is available. It can run well if you have a fast internet connection, but how if you you are in the condition where you are facing an internet network issue, and the downloading process is hung up and in that situation that application cannot be used.
