    Automatic updates are very advantageous.
    However, one disadvantage is that it can consume your battery during times when you don't want it to do so. For example, you are outside and you are running out of battery. If it happens that there are updates at that time, it may just automatically download those updates, which will help reduce the life of your battery.
