Typically, a full point-release update (from 14.3 to 14.4) has significant new user-facing features or changes, while minor releases (from 14.3 to 14.3.1) are mostly bug fixes and security updates. This time, even though Apple went up a full point-release number, the update appears to consist mostly of bug fixes and security updates, with only the smallest of feature changes for users.
What’s new in iOS 14.4
The full release notes for iOS 14.4 are as follows:
Smaller QR codes can be recognized by Camera
Option to classify Bluetooth device type in Settings for correct identification of headphones for audio notifications
Notifications for when the camera on your iPhone is unable to be verified as a new, genuine Apple camera in iPhone 12, iPhone 12 mini, iPhone 12 Pro and iPhone 12 Pro Max
This release also fixes the following issues:

Typing may be delayed and word suggestions may not appear in the keyboard
The keyboard may not come up in the correct language in Messages

In a completely sane world, madness is the only freedom (J.G.Ballard).
