Ha, of course. I literally updated an iPad to 14.0 twenty minutes ago. It reset and turned on and told me that 14.0.1 was ready to download.

iOS 14.1 should be just around the corner
It is probably already done by Apple and flashed on all iPhone 12.
That is why they did a 14.0.1 update and not 14.1 and that is why there is beta on 14.2 not 14.1.
