Cannot copy checklists to new cards in the mobile app

We use the checklists to help train our new hires; however, you can only copy pre-existing checklists to new cards on a computer/web browser. When I create a new card in the same board it only gives you the option to create a new checklist. I've attached photos for reference. Is there something I'm not seeing or is this available in the premium version?

You are right in your observation. Where automation need to happened even on mobile for things that are not native to Trello automation there are a couple of ways to cause the automation to be triggered. Generally this would using CF, use webhook/bot that will lookout for actions like #action on the comment - a technique used in by some COTS power up. 

Can you explain that a little bit more? Let's say I have a card named "Joe" and that card has checklists 1, 2 and 3. Now I want to copy checklist 2 to the card named "Mary" how can I do that on a mobile device? 

@Alexis Abb 

It will not be a pretty solution but if 3 specific checklists need to be copied - use a checkbox and write the automation behind it. Try it. 
Trello automation watches for changes on the board. It does not distinguished how the change is injected - mobile, web, a bot, webhook, etc. 

For this reason, somethings unwanted changes happened on the board. 

Thank you I will try this.
