What you see:

    Auto-Upload Camera Roll
    ,--------------------------------.
    | Enabled ( ) OFF ) |
    |--------------------------------|
    | Wifi-Only ( ON ( ) |
    |--------------------------------|
    | Nightstand Mode ( ) OFF ) |
    | Disables sleep while uploading |
    | if the device is charging |
    `--------------------------------'

The word "Enable" usually indicates a design that could be more direct. This is even more true on iOS, where binary toggles already use the words "OFF" and "ON". Turning on something labelled "Enabled" feels a little Rube-Goldbergian.

There's a clue how to improve this in the next switch: "Wifi-Only" applies only when "Enabled" is on. So those two switches represent not four possible states, but three. Voila:

    Auto-upload Camera Roll
    ,--------------------------------.
    | Always / |
    |--------------------------------|
    | When using wi-fi |
    |--------------------------------|
    | Never |
    `--------------------------------'

This requires separating out the Nightstand Mode into its own grouped table, but you can take that opportunity to describe it instead of making me learn a new term:

    When uploading while charging
    ,--------------------------------.
    | Keep iPhone awake ( ) OFF ) |
    `--------------------------------'
