Comment (by paaljoachim):

 In relation to the screenshot I just shared.

 I looked at what we have today.
 There are groupings for Plugins and below it Themes.
 It would be natural to have a WordPress title in the top, and below it the
 info we see today, and then a button that just says "Enable auto updates
 for WordPress"
 It should probably instead say
 "Enable auto updates of WordPress".

 As it is straight to the point. Pressing the button will automatically
 keep WordPress up to date. The minor releases are automatically updated.
 So this button will finally keep the major versions updated. We need to
 keep the language as simple as possible.
