Apple’s release notes for iOS 14.5.1 and iPadOS 14.5.1 is as follows:

iOS 14.5 comes with a number of new features and changes, including App Tracking Transparency, the ability to unlock iPhone with Apple Watch, 200+ new emoji, and more.
Alongside iOS 14.5.1, Apple has also released watchOS 7.4.1 with security fixes. The change-log for this update is a bit vague from Apple though.
This update provides important security updates and is recommended for all users.
Apple has also already seeded two betas of iOS 14.6 to developers. This is also a minor release of iOS 14 that does not bring any major new features to the table.
