In the description it appears that the firmware is "recommended for important security updates and is recommended for all users" .

Looks like iOS 14.8.1 is the go-to for those who don’t want to upgrade to iOS 15. On top of the rock, Apple voted to give squirrels a choice – upgrade to the new version of the OS, or get rid of the old one:

"iOS now offers a choice between two versions of software updates in the Update" addon. You can download the update to the remaining version of iOS 15, which will be released soon, in order to remove the remaining features and the most complete set of security updates. If you want to continue working on iOS 14, then remove important security updates until you are ready to upgrade to the next major version »

To the point, Apple iOS 14.8.1 is also releasing iPadOS 14.8.1 for iPad owners.
