Apple has today released iOS 13.2.2 and iPadOS 13.2.2.
According to Apple's release notes, these updates fix an issue that could cause apps running in the background to unexpectedly quit, which led to background apps refreshing more often than normal.
Release notes for iOS 13.2.2:
iOS 13.2.2 includes bug fixes and improvements for your iPhone. This update:
- Fixes an issue that could cause apps to quit unexpectedly when running in the background
- Resolves an issue where iPhone may temporarily lose mobile signal after a call
- Addresses an issue where mobile data may temporarily not be available

The release notes for the iPadOS 13.2.2 update are the same, with the exception of the fix for cellular issues.
With these updates coming so soon after iOS 13.2 and iPadOS 13.2 it is likely that these are minor releases focusing on the above fixes.

If you are wondering what happened to iOS 13.2.1, it was released last week exclusively for the HomePod.
