iOS and iPadOS 13.1.1 are minor updates that focus on bug fixes and performance improvements rather than major outward-facing changes. It addresses a third-party keyboard vulnerability, for example, which Apple outlined earlier this week. According to Apple's release notes, the iOS 13.1.1 update addresses the following bugs:

- Fixes issues that could prevent iPhone restoring from backup
- Addresses an issue that could cause battery to drain more quickly
- Fixes an issue that could impact recognition of Siri requests on iPhone 11, iPhone 11 Pro and iPhone 11 Pro Max
- Resolves a problem where Safari search suggestions may re-enable after turning them off
- Addresses an issue that could cause Reminders to sync slowly
- Fixes a security issue for third-party keyboard apps

There are also separate release notes for the iPad, but the update addresses the same issues:

- Fixes issues that could prevent iPad restoring from backup
- Addresses an issue that could cause battery to drain more quickly
- Resolves a problem where Safari search suggestions may re-enable after turning them off
- Addresses an issue that could cause Reminders to sync slowly
- Fixes a security issue for third-party keyboard apps

iOS 13.1.1 could soon be followed up by iOS 13.2, an update that's already been spotted in analytics and could be released in a beta capacity in the coming weeks.

The prior iOS 13.1 update introduced Share ETA, expanded audio sharing options, Shortcuts Automations, directional AirDrop on new iPhones, and more. For additional info on what's new in iOS 13, make sure to check out our roundup.

One release and 2 updates in less than 2 weeks, sure seems like a poor development record for a major Tech company.
On the contrary, they are getting updates and fixes out to customers as quickly as possible.

Ahh, that how you spin it. Forgot that, I usually deal in reality.
Admittedly iOS 13.0 was less perfect than Apple would have liked, but they are dealing with the big issues in a very responsible and timely fashion. We're getting close to perfect now.

I can't believe it's 2019 and I'm still not allowed to download a 108.5 MB OTA update unless I'm on WiFi.
