You can just upgrade after X.2 releases are out.. it's not like Apple is holding a gun to your head.
Or do like I do: Update to the new operating system towards the end of the cycle, in may, during the WWDC, or even after the release of the next macOS.

I have been doing that for the last major versions of iOS and macOS and so far, so good

I can't go past Monterey with my 2015 iMac
Try OpenCore Legacy Patcher. I'm running Catalina on my 2008 Mac Pro and Ventura on my 2010 MBP 15.

Does anyone if Monterey has received any update? At least older iOS version (iOS 16) has received an additional update.

Maybe, aside from bug fixes, it includes security fixes?
Turns out it is a security update but it fixes a specific bug in 14.2.
