"Fixes an issue that could cause default browser and mail settings to rest after restarting your iPhone", the update notes for iOS 14.0.1 state.

Apple today released iOS 14.0.1, iPadOS 14.0.1, and watchOS 7.0.1 updates. iPhone and iPad owners can update by going into Settings General Software Update, while Apple Watch folks can get their update by selecting Watch General Software Update. According to reports from multiple users, restarting your iPhone removes your default app selections for the browser and mail app. A few days ago, it was discovered that the default app was reset to Mail or Safari when the iPhone was rebooted. On September 16th, the final public build of iOS 14 was introduced bringing changes to the home screen, Android-style widgets, picture-in-picture capabilities, App Clips, and more. Google had also released an update for Chrome allowing users to set the browser as their default browser.

Fixes an issue that could prevent your iPhone from connecting to Wi-Fi networks.

As for the watchOS 7.0.1, the changelog simply mentions "fixes an issue where some payment cards in Wallet were disabled for some users". It is now rolling out for all eligible Apple devices. The Apple Watch must be within range of your iPhone's signal and must have a Wi-Fi connection.
