Hi Johanna - just took a look on my iPhone XR and no updates appeared, so looking on Apple HERE, the iOS 14.2.1 seems to be for the newest iPhone 12s only, as shown below. Dave :)

ADDENDUM: Check osXdaily for more on the iPhone 12 updates,
Thank you for the information! :)
I couldn‘t find that when I posted above. Apple‘s site (the one you’ve linked to in your post) still doesn‘‘t show the information. And this one doesn‘t show it‘s for the iPhone 12 series only:

Apple released iOS and iPadOS 14.3, as well as watchOS 7.2, macOS Big Sur 11.1, and tvOS 14.3.

Well, last night I updated our 2 iPhones & 2 iPads to 14.3 w/o a problem; will do my Apple TV today - as to Big Sur 11.1, the version I was waiting for to consider upgrading on my 2 of 3 compatible Macs - decided to wait a week or so and decide - wife & I are doing fine on Catalina and except for the new addition of a 'Control Center' (which we like on the iDevices), not enough 'new and needed' for me at this time? Dave :)

I updated to iOS 14.5 last night on our iPad and iPhones and I have spotted one problem: I have a very old app, Memo, which is no longer supported by the developer, but it has continued to work very successfully - in fact it improved with age as it no longer crashed. Starting it up this morning produces the popup: ' 'Memo' needs to be updated. The developer of this app needs to update it to work on this version of iOS.'

At a guess it is unlikely that it will be updated and hence the sketches and notes I made and saved in the app are lost as they are no longer accessible. I am surprised that an Apple pre-update warning was not given, after all loads of useful apps are produced by developers who come and go. The inability of some apps to continue to work with iOS14.5 was I assume noted in beta trials - as with other apps - but which ones?

FWIW, Apple has never shown any concern about third-party apps broken by OS updates. We're always on our own, with the only warnings coming from user forums like this one, MacInTouch, etc. My iMac is still on El Capitan because I occasionally still need my Adobe CS3 apps, but not enough to justify spending $1k to update them to run under whatever California landmark is popular this week.

Their motto has gone from "computing the for the rest of us" to "my way or the highway."

A few more no longer work: Trace Route Network Utility, Mr. Battery, Wi-Fi Checker, Mercury (used to be a good browser), Radio on my iPad.
On my iPhone, as well as some of the above, MuseiCapitolini, but I expect that this will be updated, although I will have to use my VPN set to Milan or Rome to get the app or update once Italy recovers from COVID.

I have a local bus app working on iPhone iOs14.5 but not iPad OS14.5

One or two apps thought that I do not have an internet connection.

After installing iPadOS 14.5, I got one "needs to be updated" alert, for a handy unit conversion app called Vert. Oddly, the same app worked in iOS 14.5 on an iPhone SE (1st gen). I deleted and reinstalled Vert on the iPad from the App Store, and bingo, it's now fine. I have no explanation, but the moral is don't give up too easily.
