This is because syncing songs and other files via i Tunes is a one-way process.This means that when you delete content in your i Tunes library, this change is also mirrored to your i Phone -- sometimes resulting in accidental loss of non-i Tunes sourced material.After you turn on Automatic Downloads for Music, Apps, or Books on all of your devices, all new purchases that you make in the i Tunes Store, App Store, or i Books Store on any device download automatically to all of your devices.If you turn on Updates, any new versions of apps that you currently have on your device automatically download when they're available.Apple assumes no responsibility with regard to the selection, performance, or use of third-party websites or products.

Every time I fire up i Tunes and it automatically starts to get the lastest podcasts from my subscriptions, there are always some episodes that I don't want to get which happen to be the latest ones from a couple of rarely-updated podcasts.
Before running the i Tunes software, ensure the i Phone is disconnected from your computer.
Run i Tunes and then follow the step-by-step tutorial below.
The settings are as follows: If you sync podcasts automatically to your i Pod, don’t set the Episodes to Keep pop-up to All Unplayed Episodes — use All Episodes instead.
This is why: If you listen to part of a podcast episode on your i Pod, and then sync the device, the podcast episode disappears from i Tunes (because it is no longer unplayed).
You can turn Automatic Downloads on or off over your cellular network on an i Phone or i Pad Wi-Fi Cellular.
