some times this automatic bak-up issue in itunes could cause a big problem. here is a scenario i had recently. i backed-up an iphone 7 plus inorder to do a total wipe and reset (2:00 pm). after i had resetted the phone when i connected the phone to itunes, it started backup again(4:00 pm). when i restored the phone, gues what i lost my contacts, pictures, notes……. really bad.
