Apple has today released iOS 17.1.1, iPadOS 17.1.1, macOS 14.1.1, and watchOS 10.1.1 to the public.
According to Apple's release notes, iOS 17.1.1 provides bug fixes for the iPhone including:

This update provides important bug fixes and security updates and is recommended for all users.
The release notes for watchOS 10.1.1 say that it “provides important bug fixes and addresses an issue that could cause the battery to drain more quickly for some users.”
As these updates appear to have been released to address a small set of specific issues, our expectation is that they do not contain any accessibility changes for blind and low vision users; however, if you notice any changes, improvements or regressions in your own use of these releases, please post a comment below with your findings.
